Review: Have you ever wondered what it's like to be an animal? Have you ever wondered how they survive in the wild? Well, in How to Swallow a Pig: Step-by-Step Advice from the Animal Kingdom by Steve Jenkins is a perfect choice for curious elementary students who like animals. This book is filled with many interesting facts on a variety of animals. It explains how a python can swallow a pig, how to catch a meal like a crocodile, or even how to disguise yourself like an octopus. The vocabulary is not hard. A first and second grader might enjoy this book but it would have to be read to them and they might need to see the pictures to understand the concept of the book. The pictures are fun and interesting, so all readers are sure to be engaged. Adults could learn something from this book too. The vocabulary is appropriate for an upper-elementary reader.
I enjoyed this book; it was very interesting. At first when opened the book; I thought it was for little kids because of all the pictures, but then when I started reading it, I saw it was very informative. If you like animals and want to learn about them, How to Swallow a Pig, is for you.
