It doesn't go as well as she thought, so she dresses up as a different neighbor and tries to do a different nice deed each time. The Pig Scout Motto is to "never give up." In the end, she earns a badge and a new friend in her neighbor.

Cute story about a little pig who is an enthusiastic scout. She wants to earn her good deed badge by helping a neighbor recovering from foot surgery. She is a bit too much for the old pig and her doctor forbids Sylia Jean from visiting. Clever solution from a scout who never gives up.
This must be the second Sylvia Jean, but I had not read the first. I enjoyed it and might use it, but not as frequently as either Gingerbread Girl or Stella Louella. The story is nicely laid out, albeit very predictable.

Sylvia Jean wants to earn a scout badge by helping her older injured neighbor. Unfortunately, her idea of helping is not what her neighbor needs right now and so, Sylvia Jean is forced to be more creative.
That Sylvia Jean is quite the character. She is fun and imaginative. I love how creative she is in these books. She sets goals and then attains them and she is honest about her mistakes as well. She is a good role model and a fabulous pig! Quite the cute book. 2012-13 Missouri Show Me Award nominee.
