Pippin the Christmas Pig

Pippin the Christmas Pig Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pippin the pig shows the boasting barn animals that giving of yourself is the best Christmas gift of all.

Tomorrow is Christmas, and all the animals are boasting to little Pippin the pig about the important gifts their VERY-great-grandparents gave to the special baby that was born in a stable long ago. When Pippin wants to know what the pigs gave, the animals scoff - what could a pig have given a holy child? Dejected, Pippin heads out alone into a raging snow storm. There he meets a lost mother and baby, and leads them to the warmth of the barn. And in caring for this family in need, the animals see that giving of yourself is the best Christmas gift of all.

Review:

"A perky pink piglet starts the barnyard buzzing when she asks 'What's Christmas?' in this clever and gentle-hearted picture book. Pippin's question gets the goat of Noddy the grumpy donkey, whose ancestors carried Mary to Bethlehem. A haughty game of can-you-top-that gets all the farm animals going, each taking credit for a role in the first Christmas and dismissing pigs altogether. But it's not until Pippin tries to run away that she finds the joyous meaning of the holiday. Zimmerman's watercolors pleasingly mix realism and adorability (in the case of Pippin's smile). Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)
