"Salcedo’s digital artwork is lively and colorful and gives each pig a distinct personality and appearance. Children will enjoy the visual humor of an illustration showing the slim pig who wears eyeglasses running away from a swarm of bees. Wilhelm’s jaunty rhymes roll off the tongue . . . [C]aregivers seeking to teach young children organizational skills and good safety habits, particularly with respect to outdoor play, will appreciate this offering. Preparation matters, and so does this board book."
