Ginger and Petunia

Oses as Ginger and conducts business as usual with no one the wiser Hilarity ensues as Petunia becomes the toast of the town proving Ginger's motto that you really are what you wea Personal ReactionI wasn t exposed to much of Patricia Polacco s work as a young child but I know I would have enjoyed this as a young child Ginger and Petunia is an excellent book bringing something new to the table on every page Ginger s pig Petunia pretends to be Ginger herself dressing up in Ginger s clothes putting on Ginger s makeup and even going to Ginger s social parties Because Petunia is a pig she cannot keep up the facade up and the illustrations perfectly depict how badly Petunia wants to get out of Ginger s clothes and do her daily mud soak The kids would love the expressions of Petunia and the colorful pages filled with lots of movement They would be just as eager to get into that mud bath Petunia daydreams about throughout the whole bookPurpose Read aloud to apply to many subjects of study in grades 2 4thLiterary Activities This book is rich in vocabulary Words like impudent or forgery or even a French term such as hors d oeuvres These are perfect to bring to attention to children in 3rd or 4th grade and to practice using them This book could also be used in a science lesson Pigs need to swim in mud baths because they don t have sweat glands to keep themselves cool This would be a fun book to reiterate with the studentsIndependent StudiesChildren can be asked what they can t go living a day without Petunia couldn t function properly without her mud soakChildren love applying things they learn and this book would provide a great way to have children to be someone for one day their parents for instance Then they would realize how much work it is and understand why people get exhausted from so many little tasks

Virginia Vincent Folsum better known as Ginger is a very elegant lady An accomplished pianist socially active and what style You are what you wear is her motto But Ginger's greates An amusing story about Ginger an eccentric fashionable and warm hearted musical artist and her pampered pig Petunia When Ginger is called away urgently to London for a performance she coordinates with an agency to take care of Petunia and her other affairs while she is away But the agency cancels after Ginger has already left Instead of wallowing in her own misery Petunia decides to take charge After all Ginger always said You are what you wear Maybe if Petunia wears Ginger s fabulous clothes she will be like GingerThis is a fun and fanciful story though I feel a bit curmudgeony saying that I m not sure what was exactly the point about it It s still well written and an enjoyable read though compared to other Polacco books it fell short for me Still she has written so many remarkable books about some very heavy subjects perhaps she just wanted to write a silly one for a change and I can t say as I blame her And the illustrations in this one are especially humorous and winsome

    I think this book is a little weird and very funny I mean a person has a giant pig living under the stairs Ginger makes cookies and blankets all for a pig But I did enjoy the funniness it had I think younger kids would enjoy this book Although I did think it was a little complicated to follow along with
