Hey, if it is good enough for George Clooney then a pet pig is good enough for us! Here are some great pet pig stories. Follow up the stories with a pig craft – you can make pig masks out of paper plates, or paperbag pig puppets.

Bloom, Suzanne. WE KEEP A PIG IN THE PARLOR. The farmer lets the persnickety pig live in the house.
McPhail, David. PIGS APLENTY, PIGS GALORE! Pigs take over the author’s house, raiding the fridge and eventually going to bed.
Stolz, Mary. EMMETT’S PIG. In this classic easy reader, Emmett wants a pet pig even though he lives in an apartment.
Numeroff, Laura. IF YOU GIVE A PIG A PANCAKE. In this circular story, a little pig (who apparently lives in the house) wants just one more thing. See the sequel IF YOU GIVE A PIG A PARTY.
