If A Pig Could Paint. By D. Passmore

The kids in my classroom loved it and laughed. We made a great painting project out of this. It really got the kids thinking.

You can take look at Amazon Here. Kindle or paperback.

Spelling and story sequencing cards can be found on TPT Here.

  Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.  Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.  If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
James 1:2-5  (NIV)
