  • A Pig Tale

    Millie the pig hates getting dirty. Worse than that she's allergic to the dust and dirt. Her brothers call her unnatural. The fact they live on a farm makes it all the more problematic. When the farmer's daughter looses her pet dog, Millie is there to make her feel better. Emily decided she wanted Millie to be her new pet. It was a perfect match. They were best friends. Their friendship will be tested though.

    Mr. Kramer has a real hit in this one. It's an amazing story of a pig that is different than others like her. The back lesson is even those who are different can become you best friend. The main story of love and acceptance is one all little's need. I felt this is a good parent-child discussion book. It opens the door to a subject many find hard to talk about. I fell in love with Millie myself. It's an adorable story your children will love and you'll find yourself reading it again and again.

  • A Pig Tale

    Meet a neat, super clean pig named Millie. The farmer's wife might love her, but the other pigs don't understand. Then Emily, bereft of her beloved dog, steps in.

    The story of Emily and Millie is told in smooth language with unobtrusive rhymes and bright clear illustrations in Paul Kramer's A Pig Tale. The sentences and ideas may grow more complex as the story progresses, but there's an underlying immediate reality, and bright illustrations keep the concepts clear. A pleasing conclusion shows how those who help can be helped in turn; kindness and generosity are rewarded, for pigs and for people as well.

  • A Pig Tale

    A Pig Tale written by Paul M. Kramer, illustrated by Krishna Yuval.

    Millie was allergic to dust and dirt; it made her eyes watery & made her sneeze.

    Her brothers and her sisters made fun of Millie who was frequently teased.

    Do you know a child that suffers from allergies? Bullying? Being different? If so, then Pig Tale is a must read. This story about a pig named Millie who is allergic to dust and dirt is a wonderful story that teaches a lesson to children about not fitting in and being disliked for being different.

    Millie is constantly teased by her brothers and sisters because she doesn't like to roll in the mud on the farm where she lives. She doesn't like to get dirty at all because she has allergies - the dirt makes her sneeze and makes her eyes water. So Millie likes to stay clean - but other pigs don't understand this. After all - it's unnatural!

    However, when the farmer's pet dog dies, his daughter is distraught, and the farmer let's Millie become his daughter's new pet. With this, Millie goes on an adventure in bravery and reaping it's rewards.

    Told in rhyme, Pig Tale is truly a delightful "tale" of how the woes of life can be turned into something positive. But mostly it is a tale that teaches children the importance of tolerance and acceptance, a lesson that all children should learn at an early age so that they can grow up to become responsible and kind adults.
