If you loved If You Give a Pig a Pancake, you are sure to love this also. Thanks Numeroff and Bond for bringing regular giggle sessions to our happy home.
There is one children's book series that is consistently enjoyable, and that would have to be Laura Numeroff's IF YOU...collection. Each book released from this series tells the tale of a somewhat spoiled animal, be it a moose, mouse, pig, etc. And each one describes the troublesome scenarios that said animal gets themselves into time and time again. The fact that Numeroff's delightful, yet easy-to-understand prose is accompanied by the utterly adorable illustrations of Felicia Bond makes this series even more enjoyable - for both children and their parents. IF YOU GIVE A PIG A PARTY is a delightful addition to the series that will put visions of celebration into each readers head, leaving everyone eager to have a party of their own!

I love the little subtleties in this book. For instance, when it mentions how the Pig will put on her favorite party dress, you see that the Pig had put on the little girls dolly's dress. It really captures the essence and imagination of a child in so many ways. My daughter loves to name all the characters she sees when they are on the bumper cars and loves finding them when they all play hide-n-seek.
It's just a very sweetly done book and one book that we will always remember being a part of my daughters young life!
Thank you to the author and illustrator!
