What this story needs is a pig in a wig, on a boat in a moat with a frog, a dog, and a goat on a log. . . .
As a panda in a blouse, a skunk on a trunk, and more hop on board, it becomes clear that what this story really needs is a bigger boat! Join Pig on an exciting boat ride as she discovers that life is more fun with friends in this fantastic funny read-aloud with cumulative text from author-illustrator Emma J. Virján.

… A Pig in a Wig is funny and perfect as an early reader book. Building, repetition, and sequence. Friendship is the main theme and I think this one would be great for the classroom and acting out. I’m eager to share it with my budding readers.

Join Pig in another fun read-aloud adventure on the farm and find out if she'll ever catch some ZZZs!
What this bedtime needsis a pig in a wigbrushing her teeth,combing her hair,and getting ready for bedwith her pink teddy bear.
But with a honk, a quack, a moo, and more, it turns out what this bedtime really needs is a quieter place to sleep!

I was delighted with the first book for the new A Pig in a Wig Series and I’m just as enthusiastic about the second book if not more so. A great bedtime book, but also one for naps, or any reading practice in between. Short building phrases and animal interest keep this quirky pig in a great pile for reading practice.
