Week 3: Ping Pong Pig

There's not a lot to say about Ping Pong Pig by Caroline Jayne Church except that it is adorable. The illustrations really make the story charming. Ping Pong is a pig who wants to fly. The only problem is that he is disturbing the other animals on the farm. His friends decide to help him so that he will stay out of their way. However, he uses his new present to make life on the farm easier for everyone. A great story for talking about the idea that even if you can't do something fully (like flying for a pig), you can do it in your own way.
And again, the illustrations are just adorable.
