Elementary school students throughout the Levittown School District heard an aspiring tale about following their dreams in a presentation inspired by the book, “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig.”

Author David Ira Rottenberg visited Summit Lane, Gardiners and Northside elementary schools along with a cast of performers who played out the events of the story. The tale follows Gwendolyn and Omar, two pigs who are best friends with big dreams. Gwendolyn longs to dance ballet, while Omar aims to join the football team. Through ballet practice alongside Gwendolyn, Omar is able to hone his skill and successfully score a touchdown at the football game. “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig” showed all students the joy in pursuing what they love. Students laughed and applauded as Omar took some tumbles as he practiced.
