Yesterday, during our World Travelers program, children heard the book Toot and Puddle by Holly Hobbie. In this story, Toot the pig travels around the world and sends postcards back to his friend Puddle, who has fun while staying home.
The children then created two pigs - one to travel and one to stay home. We mailed our traveling pigs to family and friends throughout the United States. A pig headed to South Carolina was wisely dressed in a tank top so she wouldn't get too hot. Another pig (in the picture below) packed a suitcase for the trip. We hope our traveling pig friends and their hosts are having fun this week.
