A favorite of all favorites!! This is one of those books that everyone needs to read at some point in their school years! It is a sweet story about a little girl who lives on a farm. They have piglets and she is determined to save this little big from being slaughtered. She babies this pig as much as she can. She goes to visit the barn and sit with the pig every day. As the pig gets older he makes friends with this spider in the barn. The spider makes webs with words that describe the pig. The farmers decide to take this amazing pig to the fair and put him in a contest. I think this book would be great to do character traits and character webs. There is so much personality in each character.
