Can he walk on water? Can he widen the beach? Can he pluck a star from the sky? Piglet Bo can do all of these things and more. He leaps over tall grasses, blows down a forest, and walks out onto a long pier, as far as it will take him. He looks to the deep sea, and although the pier will take him no farther, Piglet Bo will not be stopped. “I can go into the water,” he says. “If I like. If I dare.” And with a leap of faith, he jumps.
Piglet Bo finds friends on his journey—a whale, a pigeon, a bull—and they inspire and help him when they can, but ultimately it takes courage and daring for Piglet Bo to attempt the impossible. Piglet Bo is the bravest and most determined little piglet, with a heart set on adventure. There are no limits to what he can do, and young readers will fall in love with his sweet and endearing resolve. Geert De Kockere writes Piglet Bo’s adventures in simple, playful language, filled with light humor. Tineke Van Hemeldonck’s brilliant mixed-media illustrations bring the story to life, and even the littlest readers will have fun spotting the elusive, lucky four-leaf clover hidden on each page.
Piglet Bo Can Do Anything! is such a cute book for kids! This book is about a little pig that is brave and determined to complete goal after goal and with a little luck he does just that. I love that this book teaches kids to believe in themselves and to be brave and determined. My kids really enjoyed reading all the things that Piglet Bo could do and also enjoyed meeting his friends. Another fun thing about this book is that there's a hidden four leaf clover on each page that my kids had a blast locating. My kids and I loved the bright colorful illustrations and enjoyed the light humor throughout the book. This is a wonderful book!
