What This Story Needs Is A Pig In A Wig by Emma J. Virjan

Published by HarperCollins Children’s Books

Summary: Starting with a pig in a wig on a boat in a moat, the story goes on to need a frog, a dog, and a goat on a log, a rat with a hat on a trunk with a skunk, and so forth. When the boat gets too crowded, the pig in a wig starts unloading her boat, but loneliness compels her to wish for a bigger boat to accommodate everyone. This appears to be the first book in the “A Pig in a Wig” series.

Pros: A delightful easy reader, with rhyming words and repetitive text making this a good choice for beginners, as well as a story that both readers and listeners will enjoy. Ages 3-7.

Cons: The next book in the series isn’t being published until 2016.
