pig week: partying pig with a pancake

Sure, Laura Numeroff is more famous for a cookie-eating mouse, but everyone knows that the pig's where it's at. If You Give a Pig a Pancake and If You Give a Pig a Party were more popular with Elizabeth, although the boys seem to enjoy them all the same. It probably had something to do with the CD version we own, with David Hyde Pierce narrating, which has the fabulous "Piggie Polka" song at the end.


How could you not love a sweet little piggie sitting in the window sill eating her piping hot pancake?


The illustrations are simple and the story so charming in celebrating the small joys of life through a cyclical narrative.


And the party book, well, the pig has friends! Who wrap their fur turban-style! I remember Elizabeth being so amused by this when she was about 4.


The fort-building page made a huge impression on Elizabeth from the first time she saw it. She studied and thought hard about every angle of the fort. To this day, she builds more forts than our other 3 kids combined. I credit it mostly to the piggie.

  5. The construction of Fort-de pages has a strong impression on Isabel was the first time. She has studied and thought through all corners of the fortress. To date, it is built stronger than our other three children.
