1. The Thank You Book (An Elephant and Piggie Book) by Mo Willems

At the very top of the 2016 top 10 books for 6 year olds is The Thank You Book by Mo Willems.

Gerald the Elephant and Piggie the…errr, piggie…are best friends, but complete opposites. Gerald is conservative, quiet, and cautious, where Piggie is loud, boisterous, and brave. In this story, Piggie is in a “thank you” mood, thanking everyone—except for the one friend that truly matters. Whimsical illustrations and quirky humor.
