This Little Piggy Finger Puppet Book (Little Learners) Board book

This adorable nursery rhyme board book features a fun piggy character finger puppet toy built in to the story, encouraging interactive play, hand-eye coordination, and language development for babies ages 6+ months.

In case you didn’t know about the nursery rhyme of “This Little Piggy”, it is an English nursery rhyme that incorporates finger play.  I’ll include the words and instructions below.  Just to give the rhyme a little background, the full version of the nursery rhyme was first published in London in 1760 in the book The Famous Tommy Thumb’s Little Story-Book.  It’s been a popular interactive nursery rhyme for over 200 years!  WOW!  I even learned there is a vegan version where you can substitute the roast beef for bread and jam.  How contemporary!

Words Fingerplay

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none,
And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.

Wiggle the “big” toe
Wiggle the “long” toe
Wiggle the “middle” toe
Wiggle the “ring” toe
Wiggle the “pinky” and tickle the bottom of the foot

In the Little Learners board book “This Little Piggy Finger Puppet Book”, there is an adorable finger puppet piggy that follows the story on each page.  The finger puppet books are definitely Brie’s favorite Little Learner books and she likes to act surprised each time I wiggle her toe to the words.  Ha!  The book is the perfect size for little hands, and is ideal for reading and playtime on-the-go.  It’s also one of her three books that she usually picks at bedtime, which you would think would wind her up, but she really enjoys our interactive games before she goes to sleep.  Brie also makes a really great pig snort, so she likes to throw in several sound effects as we read.  We really enjoy this book mostly because Brie really gets into it!  Here’s to a lifetime of loving books and reading and I highly recommend checking out the Parragon Little Learners website below for more books in this series for your baby and toddler.  We love them!
