Snack in the Shade: What This Story Needs Is A Munch And A Crunch by Emma J. Virjan
WHAT THIS BOOK NEEDS IS A PIG IN A WIG,
MEETING FRIENDS FOR A PICNIC LUNCH.
And that's just what we've got, in Emma J. Virjan's newest Pig in a Wig book, What This Story Needs Is a Munch and a Crunch (A Pig in a Wig Book) (Harper, 2016). Our bewigged porker is the hostess with the mostest, packing up a bright, checkered blanket for the spread, plates, and lot of eats to treat her guests, rabbit, and squirrel.
There are savory sandwiches, crispy carrots, apples, and peas, and ketchup for the fries. And for fun there's a ball for playing catch and a kite to send up in the breeze, and of course...
FRIENDS TO MUNCH AND CRUNCH UNDER THE TREES.
What else have they got? A shady glade to set up their picnic spread and time to play, and
KA-BOOM! A sudden thunder shower drops in to share the fun.
What do they need now! A hasty retreat, dashing to shelter with whatever they can grab.
All they need for a party is food and friends, and an indoor picnic is fine, in this latest beginning reader book hosted by the Pig in a Wig. This installment in Harper's venerable and justly famous I-Can-Read series concentrates on the vowel-consonant combination -UNCH with plenty of fun for the whole BUNCH! Pair this one with any of Virjan's jolly rhyming readers, What This Story Needs Is a Bang and a Clang (A Pig in a Wig Book), What This Story Needs Is a Hush and a Shush, (A Pig in a Wig Book) or the series opener, What This Story Needs Is a Pig in a Wig (A Pig in a Wig Book) for a little reading review during those long summer days over a munchy, crunchy brunch!
