Paint Picture and Lesson by Jennifer Marta

    If You Give A Pig A Pancake is about a little girl who tries to keep up with a busy little pig.  She tries to accomodate her every move. 
    The day begins when the little girl gives the pig a pancake.  She wants syrup to go with it, and of course, gets sticky.  This is where the day begins to get quite crazy and chaotic. 
    Throughout the day, the pig creates many different adventures.  Each adventure leading to another.  At the end of the day the pig's hands become sticky again, and she is reminded of something she likes very much.  Guess what it is!

Critical Thinking Question
If you could choose any type of animal to replace the pig in the story, what would it be?  Why?
