Piggies, Piggies Everywhere

We have been making a LOT of trips to the library lately. And not just the local library--whenever we visit one of the neighboring towns we check out their kids collection. From time to time we also visit our friend Nilanjana, who is the librarian for the mobile bus that visits all the wee hamlets on the South Shore. Charlie thinks that a bus full of books is pretty neat-o keen, as do I.

This week, Charlie has been particularly fascinated by a trio of library books; Small Pig by Arnold Lobel, Piggies by Audrey and Don Wood, and The Three Pigs by David Weisner. They have inspired him to fill his sandbox with water so he can be a piggy in the mud. I'm happy to oblige, just as long as he doesn't get any fancy ideas about Halloween... we already have the monkey costume!
