Hog-Wild 'Bout Manners

How many of your children (in the classroom or at home) could use some help with their manners? Are you familiar with 
Piggy Monday by Suzanne Bloom?




So Mrs. Hubbub's students are acting like animals rather than children all over the school. In fact, they've "gone hog-wild!"  They're getting out of line (literally and figuratively), not sharing or taking turns, and not using their polite words. They're told that if they don't behave, "they would all turn into swine."  Well, guess what?  Yep, you've got it.  This rhyming tail tale turns into quite a comedy when the children turn into pigs as promised in order to learn their lesson. Can a specialist come in and save the day?  I use Hammy, my beloved pig puppet, to set the scene for this fun book about proper etiquette, respect and manners. Check out this book; I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised at what a little manners practice will do for your classroom climate.

  1. Kids love little pig stories and this one is a goodie. We also use Perfect Pigs. Our most favorite pig story is the tattling one, Don't Squeal Unless It's A Big Deal

  2. Good Morning, Barbara-Dear!
    You are so right with this one!
    I'm beginning to worry that manners are a thing of the past. (When did I get this old?)
    I'm putting this book on my September list... We are going to start the new year off RIGHT!

    Thanks, as always, for the recommendation
