Is That Wise, Pig?



Is That Wise, Pig?
By Jan Thomas
Beach Lane Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, 2016.

Confession: I love Jan Thomas books. And this newest edition is no exception! Pig and Mouse and Cow are making soup. Mouse adds one large onion to the soup. Cow adds two cabbages. Pig chooses to add three umbrellas. (At which the readers will start giggling uncontrollably.) Then comes the refrain that is repeated throughout the book, “Is that wise, Pig?” Together the trio works to make a tasty soup all the while helping Pig think through his choices. Kids will laugh and giggle as they count from one to ten. All of the numbers are spelled out—and it would have been nice if they were also shown numerically somewhere on the page (but that is a small quibble for such a fine book). This is a great addition to the toddler and preschool booklists and story time plans. Seriously, such fun!
