Thank You Thursdays with Mo Willems


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


May is Thank-o-Rama month with Mo Willems — author, illustrator, and Education Artist-in-Residence at The Kennedy Center. Willems is the genius behind the young children’s book series starring Elephant & Piggie!

You’re invited to join Mo every Thursday online in May, any time after 1 pm, to see who he says thank you to. Plus, children will enjoy singing a thank you song, as well as watching Mo illustrate a thank you note, too! Tune in here to find all the fun!

Mo Willems, a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, has been awarded a Caldecott Honor on three occasions. Mo’s celebrated Elephant & Piggie early-reader series has been awarded two Theodor Seuss Geisel Medals and five Geisel Honors. In 2019, The Kennedy Center named Mo the first-ever Education Artist-in-Residence. Mo began his career as a writer and animator on Sesame Street, where he garnered six Emmy Awards.
