Today was a 'What's Wrong Little Pookie?" day. Teething? Sleepy? Gas? Thirsty? Hungry?.....
Sandra Boynton's Pookie is a sweet little piglet with 'the agita' whose mama is determined to find out why.
She begins by asking him simply if he's cold, hungry, tired..... Then the book turns silly as she asks things like "Did tiny green elephants with wings oh-so-blue fly off with the cookies and leave none for you?"
In this way, Pookie's mama succeeds in cheering him up and he forgets why he was being such a fusser! ( Parents should take notes from this mama.)
I found this youtube video of a mom sharing exactly this book!
