Pig The Pug

Learn, Read

Pig was a Pug, and I’m sorry to say…. If I could have a dollar for every time I’ve heard that lately!

I bought this book a couple of months ago because it was CBCA shortlisted for Early Childhood Book of the Year this year (aka one of the Book Week books)

OK no you got me, I bought it because it has a sausage dog in it, and we LOVE sauso dogs!

Either way, we love this book so much that we now own both in the series, which we hope keeps growing, Pig The Pug and Pig the Fibber.

Both books are super easy to read and apparently for Miss 3, very easy to memorise. I love the moral for each story being to share or not to tell fibs.

The illustrations are big and bold and we spend quite a bit of time on each page talking about what’s going on, and what “flipping your wig” means.

I’d recommend this book for reading to babies and toddlers, right up to school age kids learning to read. The website suggests for 3-10, but under 3’s will still like it I think.

It’s written by Aussie Aaron Blabey who has quite a few books to his name now which I’m keen to get my hands on now these two have been such a hit.

The content is always full of teaching points, but, more importantly, her books make reading FUN. What I like about Mem Fox's books is that they can be read to a variety of ages, with different things being noticed each time. I'm not sure which book I like best. Elka loves us to read Where is the Green Sheep? This is also one of my husband's favourites as it's not too long, not too short and comes as a board book- so there's no risk of pages being torn! It also has great rhyme, making it easy for young children to follow and learn the words to. Baby Bedtime is a beautiful book, which has just been released in a "baby edition" board book version too. The illustrations by Emma Quay are just divine, matching the calm, lilting language of the book perfectly. This is an ideal book to read before bed (the title of the book may have given…
