Mrs. Pig is starting to prepare the potatoes for dinner as one little pig has stated his desire for spuds! When little brother comes in, the two piglets start to yelp. Like all good mamas, Mrs. Pig puts a stop to that and enlists their help with peeling the potatoes. It is not long before more pigs have joined the foray including papa who is quite happy to have the peelings placed on his head like a wig! (Funny pic!) Once cooked the pigs and piglets all sit down together to enjoy their meal.
What's their last job? Kiss mama's cheek and remove their plates from the table.
I just LOVE the messages in this book. First all the pigs help prepare the meal and then they sit down together to eat. This is the way it should be. Simply written in that there are not that many words on each page but absolutely well worth reading and the illustrations help tell the story.

"Pigs Love Potatoes" is a wonderful counting book! From delightful rhyme to precious illustrations, this picture book is sure to please readers and listeners of all ages, again and again.
(Although I received a free copy of this book from the author, the opinions in this review are true and are my own.)

This is a counting book, and one of the things I like about it is that each page clearly shows the correct number of pigs which is mentioned.I teach young children and it's amazing how many books do not clearly show the right number of animals or whatever that you're supposed to count! It's nice that it's about potatoes, a very familiar household item. Children can relate to eating potatoes (although many are surprised that they can be washed, peeled and cooked, not just eaten!)and the illustrations are cute. Just a simple, very nice counting story.

My 2 year old asks me to read the "pig book!" at least every other day, but often everyday. It is a nice short read, a little dry to me, but anything that makes him sit still is good for me. It does have an emphasis on counting so I hold my fingers up wiht the number of pigs, and he has started to do the same.

By far my sons favorite book. He's had it since birth and still loves to hear it, will recite it, and constantly asks for it. It has helped him learn his numbers, rhyming, and his overall literacy skills. A wonderful book! Classic and beautiful!
