Reviews - What do customers think about Pigs On A Blanket?
Great for teaching the concept of TIME! Oct 26, 1999
This book is great for teaching second graders time. They each use a small clock to move the hands as time passes while the pigs are trying to get to the beach. I have tried this book with a second grade class and they loved it! Great way to integrate literature and mathematics.
