Happy Book Birthday, Pig in a Wig!

I owe all my love for Pig to Rondi from Albany's indie bookstore, The Little Bookhouse. I asked her for some recommendations back when I was starting our Geisel project last fall and she pointed me in the direction of Emma Virjan's What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig.  We have been hooked ever since.

The latest (third) Pig book came out last Tuesday, but we were a tad busy that day so we celebrated yesterday. All K/1 students came up to the Common Area to Skype with Emma.  Emma read the book aloud to us (with props).  Then she did a great job answering questions from our 5 and 6 year olds and to wrap it up, we all sang "Happy Book Birthday" to Pig.  After we hung up we all enjoyed salsa (munch) and chips (crunch). It was a super fun birthday celebration!

I'm getting ready to hand out the books that kids preordered.

Lots of Munching and Crunching happening with this crowd!

Emma and I have matching wigs!

It was so cool to have Emma read her book to us!

One, two, three LEAP!

ps-Emma shared that a fourth book is coming out in the fall and she is working on a fifth one!  We can't wait!  Maybe we can celebrate the book birthday of one of those in person in Castleton! Fingers crossed! You know you want a star, Emma!
