Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The ebullient pig-heroine is a happy adherent to the adage "Love Thyself." "I like me!" she exclaims from the cover and goes on to say, "I like my curly tail, my round tummy and my tiny little feet." The fresh-faced piggy elaborates: she always treats herself with respect by keeping herself clean, eating good food and exercising properly. She takes care of other important needs, too, drawing lovely pictures, reading good books and cheering herself up when she's feeling down. Never too hard on herself for failures, she points out that when she makes mistakes, she tries again. The formation of a healthy self-image, the cornerstone of a happy and successful life, is what this book is all about. Bright, colorful pictures complement the bouncy, upbeat text; Carlson skillfully imparts a positive message without denying that life holds embarrassingeven sadmoments. The book and its heroine are loaded with appeal. Ages 2-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3. Nancy Carlson's book (Viking Penguin, 1988) comes to life with cheerful narration, sound effects, and songs written and sung by Sarah Weeks. In short sentences, a young pig explains her satisfaction in liking and taking care of herself. Xylophone music and simple sound effects accompany the narration. Following the story, there are follow-along activities which are loosely tied to the activities of the pig as shown in the book. In the story, the pig rows a boat; "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" sung as a round is the accompanying activity. The pig exercises and rides a bike; there are very basic exercises for children to perform. Preschool children shouldn't have any trouble following the instructions to stretch up, march in place, etc. To go along with the pig's brushing her teeth, the tape includes a lively song, "Brush Your Teeth," done in a light rock vein. None of these activities really develops the book's focus on self-esteem, but they are enjoyable and youngsters will have fun with them. At the close of the tape there is a brief segment about the author, her interests as a child, and her writing/illustrating endeavors today.

My mother bought a copy of this title for me to give to her future grandchild. I was so inspired by it, that I want to give it to all of my friends now. This book has delightful drawings and a wonderful message. This book is fun to read as an adult and a child. It is so important that children and adults are surrounded by positive messages like the one this book has to offer. I recommend it for everyone!

I satrted reading this book to my daughter when she was one. She loved to kiss the pig on the last page good night. This book taught her to "try and try again" no matter how much trouble she was having. Many times when she would get frustrated while learning a new skill instead of crying she would stop and say "try again". I buy this for all the baby girls I know. My one year old son does love it too!

Just to add to other great reviewers' points, this book is perfect for conveying joy in life's many possible activities, even when you don't have someone else to share them with. I counsel lots of folks to whom I loan my copy - parents of one child who worry their child will be lonely if an "only", single moms who also welcome reminders that life can be fun even when you aren't in a relationship, and parents-to-be who worry their child will feel badly about differences, for ex. if they're adopted or conceived with the help of a donor [the topic of my book]. This pig bravely goes on learning even when she's embarrassed or makes mistakes - so this is a good book for parents and kids!

The message of this self-esteem building book is above my 2 years olds comprehension right now, but the illustrations of this confident pig's day include lots of colorful object for a young child to point out. And when I noticed how hard it was for me to read the sentence, "I like my round tummy" without editorializing, I realized it is a pretty important message for mothers too.

I found this book to be very uplifting. My children (girls -3yr & 2 yr) loved it. It estabilishes self confidence by reminding us of activities that we do daily-- by ourselves. The book gives us a lot of reasons to be proud of ourselves. Caution: the main character is a girl pig and I was told not to buy the book for our cousin (boy - 5 yr) because he is sensitive to gender (he wouldn't relate to it). I would definately recommend this book for children (boys and girls) or even a depressed adult!

One type of reader this book is great for are those who have great imaginings but very few friends for whatever reason. Through this book, we learn we can be our own best friend through self-love and self-awareness. It would also be great for introverts and people with chronic illness or sadness. The main character seems to believe it's possible to be alone without lonely, and I like that.

I bought this for my nieces. While it seems to make all children happy when someone reads a cute story to them my nieces seem to really enjoy this book. How do I know they like this book so much? They are attentive, they smile, they laugh and they hug. What's more precious than that?

So I love this book and I was so excited to get a copy for my daughter, but I'm so disappointed in the quality of the book itself. Several of the pages never perforated at the top, and I had to tear them apart myself, leaving weird, raggedy tops. The back cover looks like it was printed in the wrong orientation, which is less of a big deal, but still weird. What happened here, Puffin? You're better than this.
