It is a hot sunny day and there has been no rain for a while- upon overhearing a conversation between the farmer and the neighbouring farmer talking about the lack of rain, in which the farmer utters the age old phrase ‘pigs might fly’ ignites pintsize desire to fly and sets him on an adventure to learn to do this.This is a humorous story with a lesson behind it, in which piglets discovers that flying is not as easy as it looks.
This book can be used to discuss phrases, weather and the importance of being content with you or what you are. I would recommend this book for year 1 or year 2, though I enjoyed listening to my 6 year old reading it to me.
