An adorable story about a little pig who is less than thrilled about his first day of school.
This little piggy doesn't want to be at school. He is uncomfortable around the other children and feels awkward during classroom activities. It turns out that he is not the only shy little piggy and he makes a like-minded friend while hiding in the bushes during recess.
The two little piggy's help each other to relax and have a good time and soon they both come to the realization that school is not such...more
This version of the song is all about being nervous on the first day of school. Great for preschool or kindergarteners. The illustrations are soft water colors but Hillenbrand has added a black outline so the pictures will be easily seen at story time. He also puts plenty of detail in his illustrations to talk about when reading one on one. This is also one of the few books showing a child (pig) in a wheelchair.
I like any kids' book that has a good story, nice illustrations, and includes images of kids in wheelchairs as a matter of routine. This story is about a little pig who is a little overwhelmed at his first day of school.
lyrics of the song with story about going to school. not use for music and movement because the kids are so young.

Can be sung to the tune - deals with the first day of kindergarten - a must in my early fall curriculum.
