Piglet and Granny

The Brussats publish the Web site www.SpiritualityandPractice.com

Piglet is waiting for her beloved grandmother to visit in this book by Margaret Wild. Trying to pass the time while she waits, she does things she's learned from Granny — keeping her balance while walking a wall, running fast, doing somersaults down a slope, playing hide-and-seek in the grass and swinging on the gate.

When Granny finally gets there she has a huge surprise for Piglet that makes all the waiting worth the effort. This sprightly story reveals the rewards of patience and the bounty of ties between grandparents and grandchildren.
