The Pig in the Pondby Martin Waddell
Most pigs don't swim, or so it's said. But on this hot summer day, the pig on Neligan's farm sits by the pond feeling envious of the ducks and geese floating in the cool water. Finally, when she can endure the heat no longer--Splash!--this sweltering pig takes a dive, throwing the entire farm into an uproar. Full color.

Experiencing The Pig in the Pond with preschoolers is a delight. Three to Five year olds will be fully engaged by the rich illustrations and simple text--words full of meaning to young children. My preschool class waited with anxious anticipation to see what that very hot pig would do AND what would happen when Nelligan came home. The end is silly and satisfying and just what the children were waiting for. This has become a much loved favorite in our classroom.
