Bookworm List: Happy Pig Day!! Oink! Oink!

Today is National Pig Day. Oink, Oink! This day was started in 1972 by Texas art teacher Ellen Stanley as a way of recognizing the pig as a smart, domesticated animal.

Did you know...

  • Pigs are very clean and they tend to keep their bedding dry and clean.
     
  • Pigs make funny sounds like grunts and squeals.
     
  • Domesticated pigs eat ground up corn, soybeans, wheat, and grain sorghum.
     
  • The skin on pigs is pink, but the hair can be different colors.
