Pig & Goose and the First Day of Spring


December 11, 2020

Book Details

In this early reader with five short chapters, emerging readers meet Pig and Goose. Pig is happy. She loves to dance. She loves to eat. But she cannot fly. And she cannot swim. Goose can fly like a bird. Goose can glide across the water beautifully. But he cannot tell stories or host a party like Pig can. Pig and Goose are very different. But what they do have in common is that they like each other. And they love springtime.
Simple text and charming illustrations guide beginning readers throughout the story and encourage independent reading.
