Pigs at Home: A Picture Word Book

Ron Van Der Meer, Author, Atie Van Der Meer, Author Aladdin Paperbacks $9.95 (18p) ISBN 978-0-689-71232-6
These pigsthe twins, Mom, Dad and babylive in a lovely little house in which almost every item bears a label, right down to ``jars of nails'' in the garage, ``microwave'' in the kitchen and a ``VCR'' in the living room. The labels are exhaustive, whether on lift-up flaps, under them or elsewhere on the page; in the tours of bedroom, bathroom, hallway and garden, it is difficult to find items that are not named. The members of the friendly family move from room to room, cooperating, playing and taking care of household chores until it's time, at last, for sleep. Bold shapes, plenty of details and the easygoing porkers (although they do look distracted by the slew of labels) make this visit worth a repeat. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)
