Today’s recommendation is a picture book that will delight both boys and girls while teaching them a lesson about sharing.
Pig was a Pug who was not only so ugly he was cute, he was selfish and greedy–a pig! He was piggy about his food, his toys, and didn’t want to learn to share. As he told his Trevor, his weenie dog housemates, “I know what your game is, you want me to SHARE!/But I’ll never do that!/ I won’t and I swear!”
Pig selfishly gathered all his things into a pile so high that when he went to the top of the pile, he tottered and fell out the window! Poor Pig the Pug.
What happened and how Pig finally learned to share is the rest of the story, and I guess you’ll have to check out the book from your school or public library to find out. While you’re reading this rhyming, silly story, enjoy the fantastic illustrations. Aaron Blabey is not only a good author, but a great illustrator who knows his Pugs.
