This little piggy did not.
This little piggy closed his mouth while he ate.
This little piggy forgot.
Just like little piggies, it's easy for young children to sometimes forget their manners. Here's a jaunty picture book that will make the learning experience all the more fun.
Kathryn Madeline Allen is the author of numerous short stories and poems for children. She lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with her three children, who always remember their manners (well, most of the time).
Nancy Wolff is a firm believer in never talking with your mouth full. Her illustrations have appeared on almost every imaginable surface, including magazines, book covers, juice boxes, journals, calendars, pens, plates, greeting cards, and much more. This is her first book for children. She lives in New York City.
"The biggest drawback of this fun, funny frolic is that the exemplary manners of the proper porker don't hold a candle to the laugh-out-loud antics of the socially impaired piglet-the one sure to leave a lasting impression on a giggly target audience." --Booklist
"Amusing, cheerful instruction for the young formative preschooler." --Kirkus Reviews
"First-time author Allen transforms the classic toe-wiggling rhyme into a pig-centric do's-and-don'ts etiquette lesson. . . . debut illustrator Wolff portrays the pig's tablemates as awed by his finesse." --Publishers Weekly
"Teachers encouraging young children to help create positive group experiences will welcome this lively addition." --School Library Journal
