Pigs can¿t be in a parade! In A Pig Parade is a Terrible Idea all of the reasons why a pig parade is not a good idea are illustrated. Just imagine pigs snuffling down the boulevard or wearing majorette uniforms, simply silly. But maybe a panda parade could be fun!This story was cute and funny! I enjoyed sharing it with my daughter and she loved the story too. I can¿t wait until we read it again.A good classroom extension for this book is to have the students share about their favorite parade memories. Also, you could have them pick what animals they think would be the best to have in a parade.
