Hello, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle By Betty MacDonald

by Ricardo Castillo in ,

PBS is synonymous with combining education and entertainment, and PBS LearningMedia’s new Summer of Reading collection combines videos, activities and interactive games to help students’ minds stay sharp while they are off from school. With this in mind, we are happy to feature the top summer reading book picks of the PBS LearningMedia’s staff. Please note, although PBS has recommended the entire Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series, we have selected a single title from each series to help showcase the kinds of stories that make up these books. For further information about the PBS LearningMedia’s Summer of Reading visit http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle loves children! Well-mannered and healthy children that is. And she has an old sea chest full of magic cures for any bad habit—like the powder that makes Phillip Carmody completely invisible when he shows off or the anti-slowpoke spray she uses to treat Harbin Quadrangle’s extra acute daydreaming disease. Of course, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s cures have some comical consequences, too… making these remarkable adventures a cheerful prescription for just
about anyone!
