Preschooler says, "The pig was angry. He was bad. But he said sorry so it's ok."

I enjoyed reading this book. The story isn't about achieving and winning, it's about being okay whether you win or lose. After failing at every competition, Pig has a fit - which every parent can relate to - but his mom says she loves him anyhow. I could tell my preschooler thought hard about that idea.

Bonus: the art is cute, and all the wildly varying characters lend themselves to some really fun reading voices.
