One pig wants potatoes . . . then so does his brother . . . his sister makes it three pigs, and Papa makes four. Then there are the neighbors! Now all the piggies want potatoes, and soon it’s one big potato party!
Anika and Christopher Denise have teamed up to create this most charming, classic counting book, full of picture-perfect pigs and pleasing rhyme. Children will love Pigs Love Potatoes as much as, well, pigs love potatoes. And as you’ll see, that’s quite a bit!
“The rhyme is enjoyably silly, bubbling along and compact trimeter couplets, and the message of cooperation that underlies the potato pig-out is tactfully incorporated… An enchanting picture book of bucolic cheer.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Children who are learning to count will enjoy trying out their skills, but this amiable picture book offers more than just counting—a childlike story told in short, rhyming phrases and a most appealing family of pigs … A natural for reading aloud.” —Booklist
“Even after youngsters are adept at counting to 10, they’ll find much to cherish here.” —Publishers Weekly
“What’s not to like about this bouncy rhyming/counting book… A story-hour candidate that’s as satisfying as a boiled potato before bed.” —Parents’ Choice Foundation (2007 Honor Winner)
