Do your parents ever worry about you? Do they constantly remind you to look both ways when you cross the street or to always eat a sensible lunch? Well, your parents aren’t half the worrywarts that Little Pig’s parents are! Little Pig can hardly leave the house without:

• sunscreen (for his sensitive piggy skin), • a scarf (in case the temperature drops), • water wings (because there’s water everywhere), • insect repellent (some mosquitoes are as big as birds), • and a hat (also for his sensitive piggy skin).

When Little Pig’s Snout Scout troop goes on a hiking trip, he shows that he is clever, resourceful, and capable—all on his own.
