Bash and the Pirate Pig- GIVEAWAY!

Our first read aloud of the school year was Bash and the Pirate Pig! It was a great story that always had us laughing. I chose this book for two reasons: I was a city girl that moved to the country in 5th grade and my son who was a city boy has moved to the country in 2nd grade and this is where we currently live! We could relate to this book in many ways. I can remember as a young girl boys talking at school about going cow tipping and snipe hunting. We had a good laugh at the characters in the book as they experienced some of the same adventures we did as kids! I also loved as a parent how the author wove his faith into the pages of the book. We give it two thumbs up!
If you would like an opportunity to win the book leave a comment below and I will randomly pick a winner this evening! Best of luck!

About Bash and the Pirate Pig 

Bash and the Pirate Pig, by Burton Cole, is the story of a cranky city kid named Raymond "Beamer" Boxby who must spend summer vacation at his younger cousin, Bash's, farm. 

Beamer prefers air conditioning and video games. He can't see what good can come of this so-called country fun that includes riding cows, river rafting with a pig, or playing with skunks. 

But hang tight, Beamer, because Bash's zany adventures with his "Fishin' and Farmin' book" (The Bible) just might lead to the coolest discovery of all.
