Storytime: Pigs

Oink, oink! Get your snorts ready for this preschool storytime.


The Three Little Pigs (Reading Railroad Books)
The Three Little Pigs
by James Marshall
--They had a difficult time following the whole story, so I found it easier to skip from "I'll think I'll try a different method" (or something like that) to the middle on the next to last page when he jumps down the chimney.

For fun we did "This Little Piggie" with our fingers right before Wood's "Piggies".

And we also got the cutest finger puppet set from our puppet guy. I believe the brand is Manhattan Toy. So we also sang rousing renditions of "Old MacDonald".

As an aside, I really need to learn how to take it easy with my animal noises. Just snorting like a pig a few times too many times makes my throat sore when I do three classes in a row.
