A coloring and activity book for children, “Three Honest Little Pigs,” was published in 2018 to provide to children who visit the Honest Abe National Headquarters in Moss or attend log raisings with there parents.

The rhymed retelling of the classic fairy tale was written by Nick and April Patterson.

“Our family’s pride in Honest Abe Log Homes and the homes that we have been able to build for people has always been a key part of my life – so much so that growing up I really never knew the actual version of Three Little Pigs story,” April recalled. “I only knew the version my dad told me where the pigs built log homes! That inspired me – along with my husband, Nick – to write this version.”

The 20-page book has original illustrations created by graphic artist, Karen Smith, as well as original puzzles, word games and activities created by April. The design, layout and publishing of the book was the responsibility of Claudia Johnson of Honest Abe Log Homes’ marketing department.
