Little Oink by Amy Krouse Rosenthal- OPTIONAL

Rosenthal, Amy Krouse. Little Oink, BOARD BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2009. $7.99. Little Oink loves to be neat and clean. He really wants to clean his room, but his parents insist he be like all the other pigs and get messy first. Once he finally messes everything up, he can go do what he really wants to, which is play “house” and tidy up. The illustrations are cute in and I can see how young readers will enjoy the flipped storyline of a pig who has to be dirty rather than clean, but it did bother me a bit that Little Oink’s parents encouraged him to be more like everyone else, rather than himself. It was harmless enough though and focused more on the switcheroo for dirty/clean. PRE-K - OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
