    Even after 19 years,it's still perfect !!!

    I'm about to be a first time mom at the age of 24.Last week when I was decorating the babys room I found myself trying to think of books I think she could get some positive thinking from.Ones that ment somthing to me growing up.I thought of alot, but none seemed to come close to the very first book I ever bought from my first school bookfair ! I picked perfect the pig out on my own and read it over and over again.I mentioned it to my mom,and to my delight she knew how much I loved my book.She had saved it in my babybook.So not only can I have the satifaction of reading it to my little girl, I also get to read my very own copy to her. I know she will love it as much as I did, And still do !!!

    'Perfect' is absolutely perfect!!!

    Years before I became a parent, and then eventually a teacher, I held this book close to my heart. After the first reading, I knew this story about a flying pig would always be one of my favorites. My home and classroom library is now vast, but I still come back to this 'classic' time and time again when my children or I need a bit of a spiritual 'lift'. You can't go wrong with a story about unconditional love and acceptance! Buy this adorable book and share it with those you love.

    I first encountered this book as a young child.  My sister and I

    I first encountered this book as a young child.  My sister and I used to beg to have it read to us at all times of the day, and twice at night.  It was an absolute joy to see it come to life on Reading Rainbow in its vibrant storytelling.  The copy that my sister and I had is long gone, and I have been trying to find another copy for years.  I was thrilled to walk into Barnes and Noble and find out that it is still in print and still available.  My daughter is eleven years old, and it's time for her to know the brilliant wonder of unconditional love,  and the joy of self acceptance.  Perfect The Pig is truly the Perfect story!
