Piggies by Audrey & Don Wood

Recommendation:  ***** (5-star)

I was so excited to re-discover this book! We once owned a copy of this story but it was so well-loved in our home that it completely fell apart. This story will have your kids giggling in no time as they read about their fingers and see the great illustrations bring the story to life.

Positives: I love the simple language and the detailed illustrations. You will see something new each time you study the drawings. Kids will love that they will soon be able to "read" this story themselves!

Negatives: None

Talking Points: Our bodies are a truly amazing creation. You can talk to your child about how and why God created our hands with 5 different size fingers and how each of our hands and fingers are unique. Use Genesis 1 and Psalm 139 when talking about how God perfectly created your child's individual fingers. I would also talk about how God wants us to use our hands. What are ways that your child can honor Jesus with their hands? Talk to them about serving others with the wonderful hands God has given us. Mostly have fun with this book, enjoy being silly with your child and be sure to end the story with the appropriate tickles and kisses!!

Age Level: 2-4 years of age
