Mrs. Potter is a clean freak (love her!) who has a messy little daughter named Ermajean. Mrs. Potter often tells Ermajean that she is going to turn into a pig if she keeps making the messes that she does. Great reminder for any clean freak (me included) that sometimes you have to take your shoes off and play in the mud.

I don't regret checking this book out of the library, but it's also not one that I plan to read multiple times before taking it back. Can you pan a children's book for being predictable? Probably not, but this one's plot was too familiar for me.

Love the artwork! A very cute story of the relationship between a mother who likes cleanliness and a daughter who likes to get dirty. I'm going to try this in my next story time.
