Odd Owls & Stout Pigs: A Book of Nonsense by Arnold Lobel

Here are two recently discovered vignettes from Arnold Lobel of Frog & Toad fame. One about owls, one about pigs. They are delightful in their playfulness.

What I thought: Loved it! The situations in which Lobel presents the owls and pigs will tickle children’s fancy. This book was a pleasure to read. The illustrations are charming and the color just right.

Story Time Idea: Pair with an owl book (Good-Night, Owl! By Pat Hutchins) and a pig book great story time.
