Title: I Know A Wee Piggy

Author: Kim Norman

KDL Description:

CONCEPT E NORMAN

A cumulative, rhyming tale of an ordinary pig who leaps out of his boy’s arms at a state fair and wallows in color after color, turning himself into a work of art.

Amazon Description:

A clever, colorful read-aloud in the tradition of I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

A fun day at the fair becomes color chaos when one boy’s energetic pig gets loose. Upside down, piggy wallows in brown, but that’s only the beginning of this cumulative, rhyming text. Soon, he’s adding a rinse of red (tomatoes), a wash of white (milk), a pinch of pink (cotton candy), and many more. Can piggy be caught before he turns the whole fair upside down?

With exuberant art by Henry Cole, this wild pig chase is a natural choice for teaching colors and begs to be read aloud.
