Kindergarten-Grade 2-This is the fourth book about this lovable pig. In the first chapter, Poppleton's small tree seems to be withering. Hudson the mouse suggests feeding it cheese, but it is Cherry Sue the llama who comes up with the idea of a bird feeder, which is just what the lonely tree needs. In the second episode, poor Poppleton is fighting off a cold. Cherry Sue comes by with a basket of oranges. Unfortunately, every time he gets one peeled, he sneezes, and it flies all over the room. In the final selection, Poppleton is wallpapering his house. Hudson proves to be too small to be of much help, Fillmore the goat keeps eating the paper, and Cherry Sue's fur gets caught in the paste. When his friends offer to change themselves in order to be more helpful, Poppleton realizes how special they are and switches to paint-which is much easier for everyone. Rylant's text is simple, and the layout of only one or two sentences per page, plus the separate chapters, make the book easy to read. These qualities also make it a good read-aloud choice. Teague's warm and funny illustrations capture the spirit of Poppleton and his companions wonderfully. A great addition to any collection.

Gr. 1^-2. Poppleton the pig and his friend llama Cherry Pie return in three short vignettes. In the first, Poppleton wonders what his newly planted tree needs in order to grow. Although a mouse friend suggest cheese, and a dog friend suggests a bone, it is Cherry Pie who comes up with the correct answer--birds. So Poppleton buys bird feeders, and the birds appear. In the second episode, Cherry Pie brings over food to help Poppleton get rid of a cold, and in the third, Poppleton must make allowances when his friends aren't quite as helpful with decorating as he would like. Although this isn't as strong as some of the other series' titles, it is still a nice combination of easy text and delightful pictures.
