I had mixed feelings about this book after reading it. I liked this book because it gave many different examples and aspects about pigs. For example, the author talked about the use of pigs for food and how humans eat different varieties of pork. The author also talked all about baby pigs and how they are called piglets. The books said, “A sow gives birth to litters. There may be 10 or more piglets in 1 litter. Piglets weigh about 3 pounds.” The book contained a lot of valuable information about pigs and covered many important aspects. Although I did like many things about this book, I disliked some as well.
One aspect that I disliked from this book was the dullness of the pages. Looking through each page, there was one picture and then text. It was not exciting to look at. The pages were white and the only color came from the pictures. The whole book was very bland. I wish it were more colorful especially if this book is supposed to cater to young children.
The big idea of this book is to provide information in all aspects about pigs. ( )
