Description

Piggies plot a peculiar path. Two little piggies run amok on the farm, as they travel from the pumpkin patch, through the garden, into the black bull's pen, and back to mama pig in time for a nap. The piggies' antics introduce young readers to prepositions of direction. Alliteration, assonance, and rhyme in each of the three stanzas make for a great read-aloud. Young and old alike will laugh out loud at the antics of these mischievous, fun-loving piggies. This book is good for your brain because: Strong picture/text support, Vocabulary development, Directional words, Mapping skills, Figurative language, Life Science, Organisms and their environments
