Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne Pettenati
This story takes the Pig family on a cross-country trip through several time zones after they miss their Christmas Eve flight to Bean Town. The book can be read on several levels. For preschoolers, the tale is a zany adventure with a happy ending, when the pigs reach their destination just after Santa has visited their cousins in Bean Town. For slightly older children, the story presents the issues of time and distance. In the back of the book, there is a map with time zones and several math questions. The author also includes an itinerary of the Pigs' trip. The upbeat illustrations and straightforward text are appropriate for the intended age group. The book, which is part of the publisher's "Pigs Will Be Pigs" series, is a great way to introduce the concepts of time and distance to young children.
