This charming set of four books is perfect for a beginning reader. The four books include Piggy's Bath, Piggy's Bedtime, Piggy's Pictures, and Piggy's Sandwich. Piggy is a young pig who is learning daily activities with his father. Dad makes a sandwich; Piggy learns to make a sandwich from watching dad. In Piggy's Pictures, piggy draws pictures and dad writes the name of the picture underneath. Piggy's Bath catalogues all of the toys necessary for taking a bath. Piggy's Bedtime shows dad reading a bedtime story to piggy, followed by a rousing pillow fight. Each page is composed of a large colorful picture and a simple sentence that demonstrate the action taking place. Depicting everyday activities, this set offers beginning readers easy and fun stories to help them learn the actions taking place in the pictures. Part of the "Brand New Readers" series. 2001, Candlewick Press, $4.99. Ages 4 to 6. Reviewer: Danielle Williams

    My 2 years old loves it, highly recommend

    I highly recommend this book. You may change the name piggy to your child's name, my daughter believes the story is about her and daddy. She loves this book and sometimes she even reads it to herself. I think it is amazing to a 2 year and 3 months old toddler to enjoy a book like this one.
