Gardening is more fun with Peppa!

Peppa and her little brother, George, love to help Grandpa Pig in the garden. They discover that everything grows from seeds planted in the dirt, and that even the apple that falls on Grandpa Pig’s head has seeds inside! Join the amiable Peppa and her spirited family as they shoo away birds and "monsta" snails, imitate butterflies and worms, make a scarecrow, and gather ingredients for a fresh salad — and Granny Pig’s delicious blackberry pie.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
For this adventure, Peppa Pig and her little brother George are visiting Grandpa and Granny Pig. Peppa and George help Grandpa in the vegetable garden. They plant seeds and learn that it takes time for seeds to grow. The siblings encounter what George calls a “mon-sta” (garden snail) in the garden. Peppa and George imitate different garden creatures. In addition, they make a scarecrow to keep the birds away from the seeds. When Mummy and Daddy Pig arrive, everyone helps pick blackberries for Granny to make pie. During the berry picking, Mummy takes a tumble. Fortunately, she is not hurt; however, she looks like a berry bush. For lunch, Granny makes a salad with vegetables from the garden. Grandpa creates a special salad for George, who says he does not like salad. Peppa has a day filled with adventure. This book is part of the “Peppa Pig” series, based on a television series of the same name. Neville Astley and Mark Baker are the original creators. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 3 to 6.

PreS-Gr 1—Peppa Pig and her little brother George are back in another wacky adventure! Peppa and George love to help Granny and Grandpa Pig in the garden. After Peppa plants seeds, she forgets that patience is an important factor in the growth process. To pass the time, the siblings create games and imitate insects. When they spot birds pecking at their seeds, they build a scarecrow. Mummy and Daddy Pig soon join in on the fun. Fans of the "Peppa Pig" television series will especially enjoy this zany adventure. Readers will laugh out loud when Peppa imitates a worm and snicker when a snail is called a "Mon-sta!" Storytellers will relish the chance to imitate Peppa's British accent and act out her chuckling snorts. Colorful, digital vector-shaped illustrations fill each spread. Parents will love the notion of constructing a salad into the shape of a dinosaur ("dino-saw") when George refuses to eat his vegetables. Readers will want more Peppa Pig action after this engaging storytime addition. The book can serve as an additional purchase, as there are numerous formats in the "Peppa Pig" series, including DVDs and mobile apps.—Krista Welz, North Bergen High School, NJ
