This Little Piggy Goes Green Piggy Toes Press / Dalmation Press, ISBN-13: 9781581179255
This board book is an earth-friendly update of "This Little Piggy."
This little piggy checks out a book at the library, eats apples in an orchard, plants veggies in a garden, and recycles cardboard into a fun house. What a good, green little piggy! Also, the book itself is made of recycled paper and printed with natural soy inks.
This book of poems written by Anastasia Suen captures the everyday experiences of elementary school. The seemingly long wait for recess, eating in a noisy lunchroom, and riding a bumpy bus to and from school-- her vivid poems match my memories, and I was happy to illustrate them!
Books come in packs of 6, in English or Spanish. A curriculum guide is also available. For more information or to order books, please click here.
