    Este debe ser uno de los libros infantiles mas lindos y mejor ilustrados que he visto. El diseño de los personajes parece ser hecho con acuarelas, la técnica de un pincel muy delicado con las líneas trazadas una a una y sus respectivos colores. Los personajes, al ser animales, le dan un toque de ternura a la historia que hace muy agradable la lectura y su seguimiento a la hora de preguntarnos "¿qué pasará ahora?".

El diseño de los personajes parece ser hecho con acuarelas, la técnica de un pincel muy delicado con las líneas trazadas una a una y sus respectivos colores. Los personajes, al ser animales, le dan un toque de ternura a la historia que hace muy agradable la lectura y su seguimiento a la hora de preguntarnos "¿qué pasará ahora?". El personaje principal "Don Chancho" está representado como el clásico cerdito rosado y regordete, una característica importante ya que lo hace atractivo a la vista. Pensando que es un libro para niños de no mas de 7 años, una dificultad que podrían tener a la hora de leer, son algunas palabras complejas para su edad (esto suponiendo que realizarán una lectura autónoma). Por ejemplo "esmero y audaz", quizás son términos que habrán escuchado pero no su significado, por lo tanto, no sabrían la función de la palabra en el texto. Por otro lado en la ultima página del cuento se puede ver el uso del modismo "-no hizo ni pío-". Para un publico de edad mas avanzada, los libros que incluyen este tipo de referencias son muy dinámicos e interesantes. Pero aquí sucedería lo mismo que con las palabras que desconocen, no les haría sentido (ya que para ellos los pájaros si hacen ese sonido -onomatopeya-). Es definitivamente un libro que yo recomendaría y no sólo a niños pequeños, ya que yo con casi 20 años disfruté leerlo, tanto por sus imágenes y por lo que te deja el contenido.

    The Pig’s Picnic shares a great message with young readers to be true to yourself and to be who you are. We see Mr. Pig who is going to ask Miss Pig on a picnic. To impress Miss Pig, Mr. Pig barrows a tail from Fox, hair from Lion, and stripes from Zebra. However, when Miss Pig sees this she does not even recognize Mr. Pig. The Illustrations in this book are beautiful and show Mr. Pig’s journey to go on a picnic with Miss Pig.

One of my favorite illustrations is when Mr. Pig is borrowing stripes from Zebra, we see Zebra unwinding them off of himself and pig wrapping himself in the stripes, I felt this was a fun way to represent the stripes going from Zebra to Mr. Pig. We find that Miss Pig likes Mr. Pig for who he is. This was not my favorite book, but is shows a message for young readers to be who you are, and you do not have to change yourself for anyone.

    Ostensibly this is a story about being true to yourself, but that has to involve telling the truth to your friends. Mr. Pig doesn't tell Miss Pig who the monster that showed up at her door was with the lion mane, zebra stripes, and fox tail.

    The Pigs' Picnic is a cute little book about Mr. Pig, who wants to ask Miss Pig to join him on a picnic, but is worried that she won't like him just the way he is. He ends up borrowing a fox's tail, a lion's hair, and a zebra's stripes, but when he reaches Miss Pig's house she doesn't recognize him. Mr. Pig returns all the borrowed accessories and returns to her home, where Miss Pig is happy and relieved to see him.

This was a cute little story for preschoolers to early elementary-aged children about liking yourself the way you are, and about the importance of others liking you just the way you are, not because of the clothes you wear or the things you have. We would borrow this from the library again!

    I love Keiko Kasza's work! I used the Spanish version of The Pigs' Picnic for a Spanish story time program focusing on pigs. The kids and parents loved this story! I told it using felt pieces that were purchased by the library as a book prop. In this humorous tale, children will learn about self-esteem and being comfortable in their own skin by Mr. Pig's experience being something he is not.

When Mr. Pig's friends find out Mr. Pig is going to invite Miss Pig on a picnic, they all suggest he wear one of their own features--Zebra's stripes, Fox's tail, and Lion's mane. Miss Pig is horrified by the "monster" she finds at her door. Without a word, he ditches his "threads" and comes back to her house, welcomed with open arms.

    This book reminded me of what magic sharing a picture book with children can be. When I read it to myself, I thought, "Oh, this is a cute, funny little story about a pig going on a picnic and being silly along the way." When I read it in story time, I had a room full of children who were alternately laughing and enthralled. They LOVED this book--a story for a picnic themed story time. The pig putting on the fox's tail, the lion's mane, and the zebra's stripes was just so completely amusing--it b This book reminded me of what magic sharing a picture book with children can be.

So, I definitely recommend reading this story with preschoolers!

    Kasza's books tend to have charming stories and gentle illustrations. This is another example of that. Mr. Pig gets some silly advice from his friends as he attempts to impress Miss Pig, when he should just try to be himself. The art isn't the most impressive thing ever, but in this context, it works.

    The animals that Mr. Pig encounters on his way to take Miss Pig out on a picnic are generous enough to share their physical attributes with him, like a fox tail and zebra stripes. He looks pretty outrageous at the end. How do you think Miss Pig responds when she sees him? Good for toddlers and preschoolers.

    Trying to look his best for his picnic with Miss Pig results in a absurdity of parts and pieces of other animals. In the end, Pig realizes that being yourself is the best you can be. Used for "Cheep, Oink, and Moo: Chicken, Pork, and Beef" storytime-April, 2010. Trying to look his best for his picnic with Miss Pig results in a absurdity of parts and pieces of other animals.

    This is a funny little story about a pig taking his friends' advice, but it doesn't woo Miss Pig. Younger kids will enjoy the goofiness of Mr.Pig. This could be a teaching moral about listening to our friends' advice. This is a funny little story about a pig taking his friends' advice, but it doesn't woo Miss Pig.

    Nice little story about being yourself. Mr. Pig who wants to look his best when asking Miss Pig out on a picnic and take some ill-advised advice from some handsome animals along the way. Bump up the pastel, smaller sized illustrations with a flannel/felt story when sharing in storytime.

    What a great book! Complete with opportunities to wear funny props. :) A funny book about accepting yourself. I also love the book "My Lucky Day" by the same author. What a great book!

    I read this one in French "Le Pique-nique des cochons" and found it packed full of inspiration and comedy. Pretty good for a tiny, tiny book! I read this one in French "Le Pique-nique des cochons" and found it packed full of inspiration and comedy. Pretty good for a tiny, tiny book!

    L recommended this book from reading it in her kindergarten class, and it was good! Love the illustrations - especially the one of the pig "all decked out" in his borrowed things.
