The school year has started but the pigs have given up on school and aren’t doing their homework. All but one, that is. Smarty Pig is working hard. Although she gets teased, her report card shows her hard work, while the others fail. They reach out to her, and she becomes their tutor. By creating games in their home that practice skills, Smarty Pig shows them that they can learn, and it’s really fun after all. She helps them understand that learning is not just for school, it’s for life.

Author Bio:

Molly Nero grew up in Texas loving to sing, dance, and read. She spent over 18 years teaching elementary school. Reading to her own children, she was inspired to write. Molly Nero recently moved to Pennsylvania where she resides with her family, 2 dogs, and a leopard spotted Gecko and enjoys writing, cooking, and making snowmen.


Smarty Pig, is a very cute story about hardwork and determination. Smarty's pigs family was teasing her about studying so hard for her classes, but when she comes home with A's on her report card and they don't, they realize they need help. They admit to not understanding their school work. This inspires Smarty Pig to help them by making learning fun. Some subjects are hard to understand but when they are made into a game, everyone seems to understand the lesson better. Instead of becoming angry at the pigs for teasing her, she finds the goodness in herself to help them. As she does this, all the pigs benefit from her wisdom and dedication.

Children will love this 30 page picture book. The colorful illustrations and rhyme will capture children's attention while at the same time encouraging children to help one another, in so doing, everyone benefits.
