Piggity-Wiggity is at a loose end. All of his brothers and sisters are busy preparing for the school concert, and nobody has time to play with him.
But when showtime finally arrives, it's Piggity-Wiggity who saves the day!
This series of books are great but are a bit of a tongue twister to read the first couple of times but is a very enjoyable book that offers a good read. The rhyming words throughout the book allow for a lot of repetitive reading allowing young children to read along and say the important and vital parts of the story which makes it a very interactive book for both reader and listener.
The illustrations are amazing, simple drawings that make the characters literally come alive on the page, and the pigs are all drawn very different and can easily be told apart from each other....as there are so many brother and sister pigs in this story, so it is nice to have them all looking different.
The story line is a great story for young children with older siblings that are always too busy to play with their younger sibling, and the young child is left out because the older ones have more important stuff to do so can be easily forgotten about. Until the older siblings need the help of the younger one and the play is saved because since he didn't have them to play with he knew all the dance moves and line etc. in the play and it goes off without a hitch.
The soft cover book is more suitable for older children that know not to rip pages but is perfect to be read to the younger ones. The font is easy to read, and if you don't mind the rhyming and somewhat tongue twisting words you will enjoy this book and it will fast become a favourite.
With so many things happening on the pages throughout the book the children have a lot of things to keep them interested and engaged in the book. It is a bit like playing eye spy there is always something different to see every time we read this book.
This book is so easy to read, the pictures are sweet and colourful. We had fun looking at all the animals and seeing what everyone was doing in each illustration. My daughter enjoyed the story and requested this book over and over again sometimes multiple times in one night.
The story itself is a fun but real-to-life situation, of stage fright and bravery. And its neat to have a "pre-schooler" as a hero.
'Piggity-Wiggity Jiggity Jig and The School Concert' is a great follow on from Piggity Wiggity Jiggity Jig Goes to Dad's Cafe.
This story follows the Piggity's family and his brother and sisters' school concert. With all of Piggity's siblings rehearsing for the school concert, Piggity has no one to play with so instead he watches the rehearsals.
The day of the concert arrives. At the most critical part of the play Piggity's brother comes down with a cough and cannot finish his part. Piggity knew his moment of fame had come, and proudly finished off the concert.
This is a well written story, very fun and exciting. The story also rhymes throughout which makes it fun to read/re-enact.
The illustrations are big which drew my 3yr old into the story. This is definitely a great read, and will be well read in this household.
