Since we're celebrating my youngest's Birthday this week, I decided it would be fun to feature her favorite reads this week. I also wanted to bring in some flowers for the background too add to the fun of her week of picks here.
Piggies by Audrey Woods and illustrated by Don Woods is one of her absolute favorites. She squeals "Piggies!" every time we read it together, spends long periods looking at all those piggies and their antics. She even recites it pretty well from memory pointing to her own 'piggies' as she goes.
What's not to love in this lusciously illustrated book? There is so much fun packed into these illustrations, I love all the details. The story is sweet and simple just how I adore them. The piggies are delightfully entertaining and sometimes mischievous. It’s a great bedtime read too as it ends with goodnight kisses for each of the piggies before they all drift off to sleep.
