Beloved author Mo Willems celebrates his 46th birthday on Feb. 11. We, his fans, gathered together for a fun-filled birthday fete to honor him and some of his silly literary pals! We sang happy birthday to Mo's photo and read three of his many titles:

Other Willems books were on display for check-out. During the celebration, we also sang songs in tribute like the revised version of "Bingo" called "Happy All The Time-Oh!":

I know an author--his name is Mo. He's happy all the time-oh!
H-A-P-P-Y, H-A-P-P-Y, H-A-P-P-Y! He's happy all the time-oh!


We freeze-danced to a song called "Statues" and played a Willems-inspired version of a classic game, "Duck, Duck, Pigeon!"

Finally, we enjoyed a light snack while working on some take-home activity sheets from Mo Willems's website.

Want Even More Mo?

We will continue the birthday celebration on Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. for "A Mo Willems Sunday!" Children can enjoy a Mo Willems themed storytime and four short films of his books including: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale.
