What This Story Needs Is a Hush and a Shush
What this bedtime needs
is a pig in a wig
brushing her teeth,
combing her hair,
and getting ready for bed
with 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!
The pig in a wig starts her bedtime routine off in the normal manner. She brushes her teeth. She combs her hair. And she goes to bed with her pink teddy bear. Then things get really interesting--and loud--as the rest of the animals on the farm want to tuck themselves in.
This book is perfect for snuggling in with a pre-reading youngster, and it's awesome for early readers too. The illustrations are brilliantly basic, and there's something worthy of comment and conversation on each page. When reading the book I was reminded of two of my favorites: Seuss and Boynton.
I'm new to the Pig in a Wig books, but this one won't be my last. I'll also add Virján's books to the list of titles I give as gifts.
