Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.Even though labeled a Level 2 this reader is very easy to read. I find the "Levels" are very inconsistent with this series anyway. A really cute story of a small pig who lives on a farm where the farmer and his wife love him very much and think he is the best pig in the world. Pig loves to wallow in mud of course, but one day Mrs. Farmer is fed up with the mess of the farm and she cleans up the whole thing including small pig's mud puddle. He can't stand the cleanliness and runs away. He finds several muddy, dirty places to settle down but none work out until he finds the perfect place in the city. Unfortunately he can't read and when he wakes up in the morning he is stuck in the cement of a new sidewalk. A funny story; Ds and I both enjoyed it very much. I really enjoy Lobel's earlier work the best!

This adorable book is about a small pig who lives on a farm and loves to play in the mud. He plays in the mud until the farmers wife cleans her house and the entire outside, including the pigs pen. The pig gets very angry and runs away. He runs to a variety of places, meeting different creatures while he is looking for his mud. The little pig goes back to the farm witht he farmer and his wife where the raid has brought new mud for him to play in.* To be used in B-2 classroom as a read aloud.

I cant tell you why I loved this book so much as a child but it was so much fun to read. It is one of the most memoriable books of my childhood. After chatting with a friend of mine of most favorite childhood books I decided to hunt it down and the cover is exactly as i remembered. Good thing BN has classics! After all these years I plan to share it with my own children and hope they enjoy it as much as I did.

I knew the words by heart when I was 4. It was a must have when I had kids. My 13 year old still speaks with pride about his 'brown bag book report' in 1st grade. The last prop he pulled out was a plastic pig stuck into plaster of paris. A+ and the beginning of much accidemic success!

My brother and I recited this book over and over as children. After 30 years, I can still remember how it goes. It is a family favorite that I look forward to passing on to family and friends.

My daughter and I loved this book. Zoe said she thinks everyone should buy this book and read it. It is a wonderful woven story about a pig who wants to move to a different mud section when the farmer's wife cleans up his mud! He ends up in mud on the sidewalk!

My daughter and I read this book for one year every night! She could not get enough of SMALL PIG.
