This Little Piggie

Literacy Tip

Hi, my name is Tricia, and this is my 10-month-old daughter Josephine. Let’s do an old familiar rhyme that actually helps children to learn the sequence of a story. Using body parts helps them remember the rhyme and the order of each “piggie’s” actions. Hold your child on your lap to make it more fun. You can use fingers if toes are not available.


This little piggie went to market, this little piggie stayed home. This little piggie had roast beef, this little piggie had none. This little piggie went “wee wee wee” all the way home.

  • Tricia is a beautiful, articulate mom and story teller. She and Josephine were so happy and engaging with the 3 Little Piggies nursery rhyme. They are great models for promoting early childhood literacy. It is very well done!
