Outstanding, Toddler, Preschool, Pig, Farm, Sick
Emma is the new pig at Apricot Lane Farms. She arrives skinny and sick, but she is expecting babies. The farmer tries to get her healthy before they arrive, but unfortunately, the 17 babies are born sooner than they hoped. When Emma develops a fever and cannot care for the babies, the farmer takes them into the house. Meanwhile, Emma's fever has gone but she still won't eat. Realizing that Emma misses her babies, the farmer reunites them to many grunts and snorts of delight. Gradually, Emma begins eating, eventually growing to be a whopping 700 pounds.
