Summary: The pigs head out west and build a house. They invite in all their neighbors and begin to build new friendships. Working together, the families build a community, plant crops, and harvest. They swim (in the mud), give thanks, and dance. The textured patterned collages fill the pages with rich colors.
Classroom Ideas: The idea of working together to build a community- told in simple words with beautiful art.
