Book Review: Piggies in a Polka by Kathi Appelt
Piggies in a Polka is all about the yearly hootenanny for all the piggies. Rhymes abound in this book that teaches different music styles, dance styles (there is a mosh pit!), and different music instruments.
What I liked most about this book were the drawings. It kind of had that 1930s nostalgia feeling to it (minus the racism). The piggies looked like they were wearing their Sunday best as the swung around and danced till the wee hours of the morning.
My son did well with it despite the fact there was not a cat to be seen. He liked the drawings and liked all the dancing pigs.
3 out of 5 stars
**This book was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well
