Molly Nero grew up in Texas loving to sing, dance, and read. She spent over 18 years teaching elementary school. Reading to her own children, she was inspired to write. Molly Nero recently moved to Pennsylvania where she resides with her family, 2 dogs, and a leopard spotted Gecko and enjoys writing, cooking, and making snowmen.
The school year has started, but the pigs have given up and don’t do their homework, except Smarty Pig who is working hard. When the others fail, she becomes their tutor. By creating games in their home that practice skills, Smarty Pig shows them that learning is fun and not just for school, it’s for life.
My Review: Awesome is the only word I can think of to describe this darling book for kids about school, homework, and doing what is right. The story has a great hook for kids whether it is being read aloud or being read independently. This is a story that combines fun, learning, and a life lesson all wrapped up in an engaging story. Teachers and parents will approve and children will want to read it again and again. I give this book a thumbs up.
