Mini Pigs by Buffy Silverman -ADVISABLE

Silverman, Buffy Mini Pigs, 24 pages.  NON-FICTION.  Lerner, 2018.  $20. Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

This book features large colorful pages and photographs of mini pigs! Readers learn about how mini pigs are different than farm pigs (but still get 100-200lbs!), how they are born and raised, what to feed them, training, and even the sounds the they make.

Yesterday I reviewed pygmy goat book by this same author and thought I wanted some goats right away but now I need a mini pig! I’m just going to have to start a farm! This book is SO adorable, that students will choose it just for that, and end up learning a lot. Perfect for K-2nd graders.
