PIGGIES & TOES - (A Traditional Nursery Rhyme Run Wild) is FREE TODAY on Amazon


As “pictured” on the Amazon product page

Happy to announce that PIGGIES & TOES, the familiar five-line nursery rhyme run wild... is yours FREE (today-only).

PIGGIES & TOES is published in the Books with No Pictures Series. As you might expect, books in this series are “pictureless” but otherwise maintain the familiar format of the standard picturebook.

There’s a reason for going pictureless in the picturebook format:

Children who are used to being read to from standard picturebooks, have developed listening and story-telling expectations that can be leveraged to help them learn to read. By weaning children from pictures—and making no other apparent changes—books in this series emphasize the power of words in storytelling. Together, these books define a new bridge between standard picturebooks and the “early readers” and chapter books children encounter on the road to reading.
