Piggy has a hard time saying goodbye to his father on the first day of school, but then he finds that the day is over much too soon. A tender-hearted father cannot bear the pleas of his child to stay and play for a while. Even when all the other parents have hugged and comforted their children, Piggy asks his father to stay for just a bit longer, enticing him with just one more story, a swing through the air, and a cuddle. When the teacher lets Piggy's father know that it is time to go, it is uncertain whether it is father or child who needs the nudge. Strong washes of color and simple figures illustrate a school that's filled with a menagerie of happy animals. Few words on each page and a large font make this perfect for lap reading or small group sharing. A good choice for first-day jitters, whether for parents or children.
