When I was younger, I read a series of books called The Chronicles of Prydain. Perhaps the most famous of these books was The Black Cauldron, which won multiple awards and earned a Disney adaptation in the 80s. In this series of fantasy novels, there is an oracular pig named Henwen. Since I read those excellent books, I have had a strange respect for these ordinary farm animals. I mean, when there is a future seeing pig in books, what isn’t to like? Regardless, pigs are cute, pink, and have curly tails. Your kids may have a desire to look into pig coloring pages.
A Little About Pigs
In short, pigs are awesome, and I believe that if they didn’t taste so good, humans would have domesticated them as pets instead of livestock. Contrary to popular belief, pigs are incredibly clean animals. I know they are typically associated with mud and pigsties, but the mud keeps them cool. Another example of a pig’s cleanliness is that pigs will eat in a completely different location from where they defecate. In other words, they have bathroom areas and eating areas. Pigs are intelligent and are thought to be as bright as some primates. So, while your kids are coloring some printable pig coloring pages, you can expound on the virtues of these incredible animals.
