    I am so happy to read Ms. Martin is going to revise Mrs. Piggle Wiggle! The series was a childhood favorite. Mrs. Piggle Wiggle’s paradoxical approach to working with children is a timeless idea that needs to be updated for our children’s “first world” problems! This could be really fabulous.

  2. Excellent choice. AMM is always an excellent choice.
