Pig Out on Reading!

Come and meet Daisy II the pig! Her friend and owner Farmer Minor does storytelling about Daisy's formative years (all true) with Farmer & Mrs. Minor. We share Daisy noises, give Daisy a treat, and talk about Daisy's pampered porcine life of reading and love of “Pig Books” and Libraries. Farmer Minor brings his rocking chair, many of Daisy's newspaper articles on posters and of course, many of their favorite pig books. At the end of the program, following the Daisy pledge, all are able to pet Daisy.
