Miss L, my 6 year old, is very interested in reading, and equally interested in what she sees me doing on the computer after I finish reading a book. I decided to give her a little Saturday segment.
Mrs Piggle-Wiggle Review
The book I read was Mrs Piggle-Wiggle – The first one. I want Happy Birthday, Mrs Piggle-Wiggle! My favorite chapter was “The Fighter-Quarrelers Cure.” but I didn’t like “The Tiny-Bite-Takers one.” I wold definitely read more Mrs. Piggle Wiggle. I like her because she really likes kids, and she likes to dress up, and has neat ideas! I like that she helps other kids by telling the parents what they need to do to cure their problems. She fixes everything! I would definitely recommend it to other 6 year olds.
What’s better? Mrs Piggle-Wiggle or….Bad Kitty? “I would say… Miss Piggle-Wiggle AND Bad kitty! (This is high praise. Bad Kitty is the ULTIMATE book in Miss L’s library. Every time a new one comes out, we MUST get it.)
Grown-Ups Thoughts: Miss Piggle-Wiggle was a fun book to read with L, but some of the stories are a bit long to get through in one night-time reading session. The cures are a bit silly, but the way the book is written, it really illustrates how much happier everyone is when kids behave, take baths, etc. I was surprised she enjoyed it so much, given the teaching/messages aspect, seeing as how she’s a little comic-book/graphic novel fiend.
