Because, by Mo Willems, is a thoughtful journey that takes the reader back to a small moment in time, that at that time, seems to be very ordinary. It is about a piece of paper, a wee little ticket, a terrible cold. And an opportunity. This wee little ticket, and saying yes to this small opportunity, was an instance that sparked a series of other events, that would change the course of a little girl’s future. I guess you’ll have to take a journey to the Mount Prospect Public Library and read this wonderful book yourself to discover what its really all about.
