A tea party with Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the rabbit is Piggy's first stop on his book adventure trip. Who has read about a mermaid in a favorite story? Young readers will also remember Red Riding Hood when Piggy runs along with her as the wolf chases them through the forest. Pirates and treasure are also part of the reading adventure.

Bring Piggy and Foxy's Adventures with Favorite Books Into the Classroom
Picture books were always my favorite tool to use with my kindergarten class to teach a variety of lessons. My passion was teaching reading to my young students and picture books were my go-to-tools for teaching a love for reading.
Emily Ford's The Big Book Adventure has a wealth of ideas for use in an early childhood classroom.
*Read The Big Book Adventure in a group story time session. Call attention to the little characters Piggy and Foxy as they go on their reading adventures through the story.
*Piggy's first adventure with reading the story of Alice in Wonderland is the first stop. Have a copy of this favorite story to read a a later time. It might be fun to have read this story before reading The Big Book Adventure so that young readers will recognize Alice at the tea party.
*Call attention to the mermaid from a story that Piggy is reading. Provide a collection of books about mermaids in your class library.
*Piggy also loves Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Provide copies of these favorite fairy tales in your class library.
*Engage young readers in a group discussion of their favorite books. Piggy and Foxy belong to a book club. Provide a class opportunity for your young readers to form a book club to share favorite books with friends.
*Provide an opportunity for young readers to create a book report for their favorite book. Young readers who do not yet write can draw their book report.
*Engage young readers in a math activity to create a "Favorites" graph for books chosen. Create a graph with using the choices made by Piggy and Foxy from The Big Book Adventure.
