Why am I crying about a pig? Why am I crying about a happy story about a pig? These are the questions I asked myself while thoroughly enjoying THE UNLIKELY STORY OF A PIG IN THE CITY by author @jodi_kendall.
~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
The protagonist, Josie, is a 12-year-old gymnast going through a tough time. She’s getting too tall for her sport, her house is jam-packed, and she feels lost in a sea of siblings. When her brother Tom comes home with a pig one day (long story), Josie is smitten. The one problem: her parents say Hamlet has to be out of the house by New Year’s Day. With just six weeks to go, will Josie find a home for Hamlet? Or is he destined for a pig farm, where Josie fears his time will be limited?
~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
THE UNLIKELY STORY OF A PIG IN THE CITY is such a well crafted middle grade novel. Josie has plenty of middle school angst (Am I too tall? Will I have enough money? Do I like that boy?), but it never feels manufactured to create conflict to advance the story line.
~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
I fell in love with Hamlet, and with Josie’s friends who band together to save his life. I’m always thrilled to find a middle grade novel where there are no bullies or mean kids, and this is a new one to add to the list.
~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
Josie’s family is equally lovable. The fight, they let one another down, but they’re there for one another when it matters.
~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
If you’re looking for a new feel-good read-aloud, I highly recommend this book! It published on October 3, 2017 from @harperchildrens.

With February fast approaching we’re going to see a lot of titles about love around the Bookstagram community...and this one is about love, just stinky, monsterly love. Perfect for kiddos who love monsters, Halloween and things that go bump in the night!
.
This was released this past fall but I think it’s perfect for those who want to express monsterly love all year long. Oh, and it rhymes! Yay!
.
Thanks to @harperchildrens for sending me this one - I’ve been holding onto it to share closer to Valentine’s Day!

I entered a @harperchildrens giveaway contest and, amazingly, won. I promise this family can never have enough books. One of these days we'll be swimming in them. But I can't complain. Being swallowed by words and infinite stories sounds perfect. Harpers was great and sent the books over right after I sent my information and I received them in a couple days. If you're looking for a new book for your little I highly recommend these. We can not get enough! • Harold & The Purple Crayon has become a bedtime staple. It's an extremely imaginative story about a boy who goes on an adventure based on what he draws. I think the appeal of it is the fact it looks like real marker and makes it easy to relate to • Maurice Sendak's Nutshell Library which has beautiful illustrations and is perfect for little hands. Maddox takes the jacket covers off so he won't "break them" and continuously asks for The "Johnny" book. • Paddington & Goodnight Moon, both incredible classics! • The Giving Tree which is so bittersweet. It's in black and white so it's not too distracting but the story is beautiful and perfect for anyone with an appreciation for nature. | #motherhood #slowliving #bookstagram #harperchildrens #watchthemgrow #books #littlelibrary

Raising a girl in 2018: ballet class and science-based reading. 💪
.
This is a really fun spin on big numbers - using comparisons to things kids can wrap their heads around to introduce the concept of billions, trillions and so on. I love that almost every page includes how to read each large number, because some of the numbers are so big I wouldn’t have known how to read them!
.
A fantastic author’s note at the end rounds out this introduction to large numbers and explains how the numbers in this book are “sort-of-definitely-ALMOST true.”
.
Thanks to HarperChildrens for sending me this one! It’s a fantastic non-fiction and I’m so glad we can add it to our shelf!

Hamlet the pig on #theunlikelystoryofapiginthecity book spine always brings a big smile to my face 😍🐷📚 yesterday I saw the final(?) book jacket for the sequel, DOG DAYS IN THE CITY, and it is so incredibly beautiful... it literally took my breath away, it’s that stunning. I’m deeply grateful to the amazing @pascalcampionart and @dcurtisstudio @harperchildrens. You can add the sequel now to your Goodreads if you’d like, and stay tuned for a mid-feb cover reveal! .

All Little Miss wanted for Christmas was costumes. Her list for Santa was literally “all the costumes”. 😂 Santa and family members delivered and now she’s in heaven.
.
When I pulled this one out to read Little Miss was immediately intrigued. A princess kitty?! The voice and hilarious illustrations kept Mr. 4 entertained too - so it’s a double thumbs up from my kids.
.
As a parental aside, I like that this one introduces the concept of a person - or a cat - thinking the world revolves around them when it clearly does not. Crucial learning for kids, LOL.

Thanks to @harperchildrens for sending me this one! It released October 17, 2017.

"La telaraña de Carlota" E.B. White.
🕷️
🕸️

A principios de diciembre me propuse leer los clásicos infantiles que tenía en mi lista de pendientes y comencé por este libro.
.
.
Aunque me engancho y lo leí de un tirón sentí que fue un golpe bajo tras otro. 🐷

Para ser sincera y por supuesto esto es una opinión personal, no se lo leria a un niño...
Sí bien lo que quiere enseñarnos la historia es el valor de la amistad, creo que hay muchos libros con la misma enseñanza y sin tanta amargura.
🐖

Quiero saber sus opiniones. ¿Ustedes se lo leyeron o lerian a un niño? .
