Louise Bond-Fraserabout this book: "Pong the not-BIG Pig" is an illustrated rhyme about a small, but heroic piglet called "Pong". Pong is left to his books and his daydreams by his larger siblings who mistakenly judge him by his size. However, when they find themselves in trouble, it is the clever, imaginative and resourceful Pong who forgivingly comes to their rescue and proves that size really doesn't matter.
"Pong the not-BIG Pig" is a story for children ages 4-5 and up. The story demonstrates that it is "who" you are, rather than "what", that really matters. It also outlines the basic mechanical concept of the lever.
This story is meant to grow with children. With watercolours to accompany the text, small children can "read along" with adults whilst becoming familiar with the rhyme, and then the words, as they learn to read for themselves. Pre-schoolers and grade-schoolers alike will benefit from the message. Ultimately, children, like adults, learn through familiarity and contextualisation, and Pong's lessons in self-worth and resolve are applicable for a lifetime.
