A group of plump porkers try to make a trip to the beach in what PW called "a comical caper cum math lesson." Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1998 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
From School Library Journal
Grade 1-2?Children who exercised their math skills with the effervescent porcine family in Axelrod's Pigs Will Be Pigs (S & S, 1994) can pick up more practice adding, subtracting, and telling time as the portly clan visits the beach. The piglets are ready to go in no time, but the minutes march past as Mr. Pig tries to find a swimsuit that still fits (45 minutes), hunts for car keys (1 hour), gets a speeding ticket (13 minutes), stands in line at the concession stand (60 minutes), and insists they wait for lunch to digest (30 minutes, plus 20 more for the lemonade and brownies). At last it's "Time to ride the waves!" But no, it's 5:30, and the beach is closing. Animal characters in colorful summer dress cavort cheerfully through simple cartoon illustrations. The Pigs' misadventure gets a recap in rebuses at the end, and an afterword poses a few word problems and a discussion of clock face features and digital equivalents. This painless lesson makes a good follow-up to books like Bruce McMillan's Time to... (Lothrop, 1989; o.p.).?John Peters, New York Public Library

I would recommend this book and her other books as a way to gain children's attention. This can also be a good and easy way to incorporate different subject matters. I have also used this book for tutoring a student, and she loved the story line and little pigs throughout the story that talked like humans with dialogue.
