Summer Reading With Daisy: Pigs

This weeks, it's all about pigs.  Robert Munsch wrote and Michael Martchenko illustrated an informative book called Pigs.  
Meghan lives on a farm with pigs.  Her dad tells her pigs are smarter than you think, but Meghan ignores his sage advice. 
Meghan quickly wishes she listened to her dad's advice.  She opened the gate to the pig pen and thought the pigs would be too stupid to go through.  Joke's on her!
You're not going to believe this, but the pigs ran all the way to school and took over!
Meghan thought the pigs would follow her directions and go home.  The pigs did find a way to go back to the farm...
Meghan did learn her lesson and didn't let out any more animals.  Well, at least any more pigs.
You can't go wrong with a Robert Munsch book!!!

  9. Oh gosh don't tell me about piglets. A semi truck carrying over 2,000 piglets overturned near us. If you had a 1,000 plus piglets running around they said could possibly spread disease on the roadways and in yards well Daisy I think I will skip that book. Oh heck the story even made the national news.
    Thanks for being a friend
