Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a short, simple story, fully illustrated, with familiar objects and situations, repetition, rhyme, and strong links between art and text. The big pig and the little pig are hot--the sun is shining and they want to cool off. They each decide to make a hole to fill with water. Part of the humor in this story comes from the way they go about their respective tasks. Big Pig uses a little shovel to dig his hole while Little Pig has a mechanical digger. The end result seems to suit each as one sits with his big fanny in what looks like a puddle, while the other cavorts in his large swimming hole. This is a Green Light Reader, Level 1. 2000, Harcourt, $10.95 and $3.95. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Two appealing offerings for beginning readers. One hot day, Big Pig and Little Pig both decide to build their own pools. Although Big Pig likes to do things on a small scale (using a shovel to dig) and Little Pig likes to accomplish tasks on a grander scale (excavating with a bulldozer), they are still great friends. McPhail's signature illustrations fill each page as he once again successfully manages to transfer human emotions to his lovable cartoon pigs. Well-chosen vocabulary and repetition of words make this story a suitable choice for those just learning to read. In Tiger, a little girl comes across a variety of animals before finding her lost cat. Ernst illustrates the story with appealing cartoons in pastel colors. Her uncomplicated artwork invites children to make the connection between the words and the pictures, giving them plenty to look at while providing effective visual reinforcement for the appropriately simple text.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
