There are classics of the nursery rhyme oeuvre and This Little Piggy is certainly one of them. Who doesn’t remember someone ticking of each of their fingers or toes as they explained the whereabouts of our porcine pals, only to be tickled at the end? However, this is 2014 and there must be a way to improve the rhyme; perhaps the pigs are eating something different or like a different activity? Or perhaps we should just leave well alone?

‘This Little Piggy Went Dancing’ recreates the classic rhym

It's fun to make all the little piggies with food share with all the little piggies who lose their food to that silly mouse. Also it's fun to touch your toes and call them piggies.

A delightful version of the traditional rhyme. These pigs are very active and busy - all except pig number four who always "has none".

What a cute expansion of the rhyme. After reading this all the piggies will go wee wee wee all the way home.

Cute expansion on the theme. Not certain how WELL it would go in Story time, but we'll give it a try.

Delightful spin on the old rhyme. I can see kids getting up and doing the last piggy's movements!
