Pig is Big on Books by Douglas Florian- OPTIONAL

Florian, Douglas. Pig is Big on Books, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2015. $14.95. There is a pig that loves books. He reads all sizes of books. He reads at home, at school, and on the bus. He reads with his friends. He reads with his family. One day, Pig can’t find any books! He decides to write his own book. This book. The is an early reader book, so the writing is simple and sparse. I know that the illustrations are supposed to look like they are hand drawn so that the reader can see that the pig is the one that wrote the book at the end of the story, but the drawings were a really big turn off for me. I think they could still have looked homemade if they had be more crisp and clean. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
