Review: Pug Meets Pig by Sue Lowell Gallion +GIVEAWAY

Title: Pug Meets Pig
Author: Sue Lowell Gallion
Illustrator: Joyce Wan

An unlikely pair—a pug and a pig!—realize that it’s better to be together.

Pug is a very happy pup. He has his own yard, his own bowl, and even his own cozy bed! That is, until Pig moves in and starts eating from Pug’s bowl, interrupting Pug’s routine, and, worst of all, sleeping in Pug’s bed. Will Pug and Pig ever learn to live together as friends?

So cute! I absolutely adore this book!  It's a simply written book, but yet captures pug's feelings perfectly as he meets the new pig.  The illustrations couple with the text so nicely keeping the simplicity yet full of emotion. I can completely see students loving this book and laughing at poor pug as he struggles to adapt to a new house-mate. They will fall in love with him as much as I have. What I like too is that see them "reading" the book as well just by reading the pictures.  

I love the message as well - that if we open up to new opportunities they can turn out wonderfully.  Students will get that message without it having to be stated.  They will just see what pug learned and learn from it as well.  

Just a well done book that will become a favorite of mine and I hope my students as well.

Media thoughts:  Yes! This will go in the collection for sure.  I also plan on reading it aloud to my kindergartners and doing some activities with it.  

Like dogs
Like pigs :)
Are just the the verge of reading
