I think this is my favorite Elephant and Piggie story of them all. Elephant gets some ice cream and then contemplates sharing it with Piggie until it melts. It has a comical voice to it, though and really shows the struggle of sharing for some people. I think it's great for preschool to 5th grade because of the humor.

Poor Gerald has a dilemma when he thinks maybe he should share his ice cream with best friend Piggy. Will he make the right decision? A bit of humor and some good, organic lessons about sharing (and indecision) make this another winner from Mo Willems.
