A Parcel of Pigs is a collection of quirky and ‘easy to engage with’ children’s rhymes with bright, colourful watercolour illustrations by the author. The rhymes are perfect for reading aloud, with an educational and creative slant, whilst appealing to both children and adults alike.
Andréa Prior’s illustrated children’s book A Parcel of Pigs is a collection of quirky and appealing children’s rhymes with colourful illustrations by the author. Great to read aloud, the rhymes are written to provide an interactive and memorable reading experience between parent and child, as well as being a fun and engaging way to help children with their reading skills. Aimed at 5 – 8 year olds, the rhymes are intertwined with humour and are full of word patterns and wordplay; a perfect way to help children with their linguistic development, pronunciation skills, spelling and memory recall. There is also a selection of engaging questions at the end of each rhyme, so that children can test their memory of what they have seen in the illustration, listened to, or read. Each poem has a different character that children can easily engage with – they will meet the scariest mother they have ever seen, find out why Barnaby was so very bothered, how the red-skinned onion is so very tasty, how Humphrey the Hippo got so very lost, and how the naughty mouse outwitted the smart ginger cat. Beautifully illustrated, A Parcel of Pigs will appeal to parents and children who love reading together and enjoy interactive books with funny animal and people characters. This book is original, appealing and a fun and engaging way to help children to learn!
