Baby librarian Tilly and her mum Jen review the charming board book Pigs in a Blanket by Hans Wilhelm, illustrated by Erica Salcedo.
Tilly reviews Pigs in a Blanket
I like the flappy bits of this book. They are fun to play with! They’re good to open and close and sometimes that’s enough fun that you don’t even need to read the book and it’s a good toy. But the book is good too, when I let Mummy read it to me. There is good rhyming and I like seeing the pigs do different things. Pigs aren’t the best animal (sheep are, followed by ducks), but I like the pigs in this book. I like the bath page the best. I like baths and it’s funny to see pigs having a bath.

The flappy bit that Tilly is referring to is the little cardboard blanket that wraps around the bottom of the book, and is held shut by a magnetic close. It’s a very cute idea and Tilly enjoys opening and closing it. The story itself is cute, taking us through the day of the three pigs from the time they wake up until the time they go to bed (nice and snug in their warm blanket). I like the details in the illustrations, and this is a fun one to read out loud.
