Pig isn't like most pigs. She doesn't like to roll in the mud or get dirty. She likes to watch birds and butterflies. She likes to sing and make up stories. She's a daydreamer. Mouse is a vagabond, always moving to keep safe. When events bring them together, an unlikely friendship forms as they bond over their first adventure: treasure hunting!
Pig and Mouse formed an unusual friendship, but maybe it's not unusal at all. If you've ever witnessed a connection between two species, say, a dog and a cat, or a cat and a bird, you already know animals are capable of feeling love and empathy just like we can. Pig and Mouse's friendship highlights the value of empathy and that differences in size and appearance do not matter. The author invites you to share the story of Pig and Mouse with your children as the touchstone to an important conversation about diversity, empathy, and what's truly important.
I bought “Adventures of Pig and Mouse” for a 3-year-old girl I babysit, who just like Pig loves to collect treasures outside. The sweet story is not only about a fun little adventure but teaches how special friendships can form despite differences. The pictures are so cheerful and colorful with lots of interesting things to capture the attention of children all ages.
