    Big Squeal: A Wild, True, and Twisted Tail

    The Big Squeal is all about a special visitor that came to my school. I was little and in Ms. Gail's creative class. I remember it like yesterday. This book tells it all, step by step how it all really happened and the illustrations add the feelings. An emergency day that brought out a hero and a lesson for 600 at my school and now for readers to be able to read this in The Big Squeal. When I have children they will cherish this book.

    Big Squeal: A Wild, True, and Twisted Tail

    I discovered this book and thoroughly enjoyed the humor, mystery, the message and the zeal the children will feel. It is significant because I always recommend Joyful Learning~No One ever Wants To Go To Recess! by Gail Small to every parent and education student. That same pig was told about in her true teaching stories about style and making learning to come alive.Did you see her spelling book? Spelling doesn't have to be the old school studies any more.
