Our pattern of the month is the Pig! No barnyard assortment of puppets would be complete without the pig. And who could forget the fable of The Three Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf? And no children’s book library would be complete without the Elephant and Piggy series by Mo Willems. In our upcoming blog article about books featuring pigs we’ll share our favorite book in that series.
Fun Facts About Pigs
- They are some of the smartest animals on the planet. When trained, they learn tricks faster than dogs.
- They have long memories and can remember things years later.
- They like to get massages, listen to music and are very curious.
- In their natural state, pigs are very clean animals. They keep their toilets far away from eating and sleeping areas.
