Pigs

PreSchool-Grade 3-Basic information about hogs is presented in a simple, straightforward style. Although the author notes that "Most pigs are raised to go to market..." the text emphasizes the other more cheerful possibilities for swine-as a loved pet or country-fair show animal. A final page offers facts and trivia about these creatures. The book offers sufficient background for browsers and young pig lovers but not enough for report writers. Paneled, full-color, cartoon watercolors illustrate the text. The popularity of Charlotte's Web and the movie Babe have made pigs a topic of interest for more than just the homework crowd. This title should be purchased wherever Gibbons's other books or easy animal titles are in demand.
