If You Give a Pig a Party (Hardcover)    

  • If You Give a Pig a Party by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond, one of our favorite children's picture books, is a humorous story with great illustrations and lovable characters. The adorable pig in If You Give a Pig a Pancake is back with a tale of great party fun. The sequence of events starts with a girl's offer to give a pig a party. The pig then asks for balloons to decorate the house, puts on her favorite dress and invites her friends to the party. The pig's friends, a mouse, a moose and more, are attending a street fair, so the pig joins them for the rides and games. After returning home, the girl plays hide and seek with the animals. Children will have fun trying to find the animals hiding in the back yard. Then the pig wants a sleepover and the animals have a pillow fight. The story ends with the pig asking for another party. Felicia Bond's humorous illustrations are simple and delightful. This creative book can be used to teach the concept of cause and effect. If You Give a Pig a Party is a good book to read aloud to children in preschool, kindergarten and first grade.
