A Parents Best Children’s Book of 2019
These little piggies lead a series of silly counting opportunities from one to ten as Jarvis puts his spin on a popular nursery rhyme.

One little piggy went to market.
Two little piggies had a car but couldn’t park it.

When one little piggy sets out for the market, more and more piggies join in, dancing for hours, flying with superpowers, playing bongos on top of an elephant — and counting to ten all the while. Leading young ones easily from toe games to numbers, this little book will have them squealing with fun.

Praise For This Little Piggy: A Counting Book

The bright digital illustrations in both books will capture readers’ attention and they will enjoy pointing out the silly details, such as a roller-skating giraffe. This book board duo is a great addition to collections everywhere.
