She's a wee piggy, can you tell?

I Know a Wee Piggy ~ by Kim Norman, illustrated by Henry Cole, 2012, children's book, 9/10
A day at the fair becomes color chaos when one boy's energetic pig gets loose.  Upside down, piggy wallows in brown mud, but that's only the beginning of this cumulative, rhyming text.  Soon, he's adding a rinse of red (tomatoes), a wash of white (milk), a pinch of pink (cotton candy), then yellow, black, green, gray, orange, purple, and blue.  Can the wee piggy be caught before he turns the whole fair upside down?

My great-granddaughter dressed up this morning as a "wee piggy" for book character day at her school.  She chose a book that teaches children about colors.  Notice the colors attached to the piggy outfit Shelby is wearing today — I see brown, pink, and green in the photo.  It's a cute book for early readers.  Click to watch the YouTube video.

I am so glad to hear kids are dressing up as book characters!

She's done it before. Here's a link to last year, when she was The Ladybug Girl on her school's book character day. In 2019, she was a "bug girl" for Halloween.
