"This little piggy said 'please' and 'thank you.'
This little piggy did not.
This little piggy closed his mouth while he ate.
This little piggy forgot.
Just like little piggies, it's easy for young children to sometimes forget their manners. Here's a jaunty picture book that will make the learning experience all the more fun.

Kathryn Madeline Allen is the author of numerous short stories and poems for children. She lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with her three children, who always remember their manners (well, most of the time).
Nancy Wolff is a firm believer in never talking with your mouth full. Her illustrations have appeared on almost every imaginable surface, including magazines, book covers, juice boxes, journals, calendars, pens, plates, greeting cards, and much more. This is her first book for children. She lives in New York City.
PreS-Gr. 2. In this clever tale of etiquette and edification, piggish behavior takes on new meaning. Like Karen Katz's No Biting! (2002) and Martine Agassi's Hands Are Not for Hitting (2000), Piggy gives behavioral cues to little ones still focused on their own worldview and parents fighting the good fight in the war on rude behavior. Comparing the boorish attitude of one pig to the polite demeanor of another, the lesson continually reinforced is positive feedback comes from positive behavior. From the sharing of toys to sloppy table manners (called "utterly disgusting" by a bovine dining companion), the book draws upon situations that will be very familiar to youngsters. The biggest drawback of this fun, funny frolic is that the exemplary manners of the proper porker don't hold a candle to the laugh-out-loud antics of the socially impaired piglet--the one sure to leave a lasting impression on a giggly target audience. Wolff's signature four-legged friends lend a hip, contemporary edge to this swine-time tale. Terry Glover
