Book Review: The Book Hog
Written & illustrated by: Greg Pizzoli
Approximate read time: 8 minutes
Age group: 4 – 8
The Book Hog tells the tale of a pig that loves books. Without giving away the twists, it’s a very sweet story about the value of literacy and library resources, and the kindness of others. Our only other named character is Miss Olive, a generous and kind elephant librarian. The story is simple but touches on a subject that matters to parents and educators, and encourages struggling readers. The illustrations are pleasant, with clear lines and a consistent color scheme throughout.
Did you, or your little one, struggle with learning to read? It’s so common, but not often discussed.
“The Book Hog loved books.
And he had quite a few.
But the Book Hog had a secret.
A BIG secret.”
