    Another beautifully detailed book by this husband and wife team I am glad they saved the snake swallowing the pig steps until the last page Truthfully that is the one series of illustrations I could have done without

    Haven’t you ever wondered how to farm like a leaf cutter ant? Or dance like a grebe? How about catch a meal like a crocodile? I know you’ve wondered how to woo a ewe like a mountain sheep Well grab some friends because Steve Jenkins and Robin Page tell you how in their fascinating informational book How to Swallow a Pig like a python that is Jenkins and Page artfully blend information and nature based fun in this step by step how to guide They add in helpful tips such as “If you want to make a paper wasp nest get ready to do a lot of chewing” and “be sure to share your millipede with any monkeys that don’t have their own” It is chock full of practical survival skills – imitating ways of defending oneself like an armadillo and using a bubble net to catch fish Who doesn’t want to do that? Above all the book reminds us that practice makes perfect The book covers 18 different animals and gives a short overview with additional intriguing facts of each animal in the back of the bookSteve Jenkins and Robin Page are Caldecott Honor winners They have written and illustrated numerous informational books about animals and each one is beautiful and interesting This book is a wonderful launching point for animal science I would recommend this book as a read aloud for grades K 3 Because there are so many animals and the book is a step by step guide there are easy entry points into the book one could pick up the book and start on just about any page Starting with the title and asking kids ‘So how DO you swallow a pig?’ is a great hook to get curious kids on the edge of their seats After reading the book a fun activity would be to break kids into groups and have them act out one of the step by step guides and then have them explore WHY uestions in a rich discussion such as “Why does the armadillo need to protect itself? What predators are after them?” The book could also be used as a research writing project where after reading the book students research an animal and write their own how to step by step guide Who wouldn’t want to know how to pollinate a flower like a bee?? Be sure that if you pick up this book you also have a kid nearby – because you’re going to want to share it with a child immediately

    ‘How to Swallow A Pig’ is an engaging funny and highly informative piece of informativenonfiction AuthorIllustrators Steve Jenkins and Robin Page team up to create a text that teaches children highly informative “survival” skills in the shape of various animals Want to learn how to spin a web like a spider? Want to know how warn off danger like a Vervet monkey? ‘How To’ does just that—giving a detailed enumerated list of step by step instructions The book is effective for three reasons One—the layout is simple and easy to navigate visually; every single “how to” is followed by a list of easy to follow steps Two—the writing is informative yet engaging; by teaching kids these “survival” strategies the book is also teaching them about animals and some of the uirky skillstalents that they possess Three—the illustrations are really well done; every “how to” comes not only with a list of steps but also colorful illustrations that coincide with each step My favorite “how to” is how to dance like a grebe it discusses how male grebes offer females gifts such as weeds and how grebes imitate each other’s gestures At the end grebes position themselves side by side and start paddling their feet as hard as they can which ultimately propels them out of the waterI would list this text at K 3 for read aloud The word selection content and layout pertain to the lower grades at the elementary level In my experience young children love to learn about animals—tying this text across the discipline into a science lesson would be a fantastic way of teaching students not only about uirky animal traits but also about making lists and describing step by step instructions Hypothetically a teacher could have hisher children read this text and then create their own step by step instruction relating to something that they know how to do

    Everything Steve Jenkins touches is going to be great to look at the guy makes his own paper and then cuts and tears it into shapes so he can make fabulous textured collages of plants and animals from near and far He freuently works with his wife Robin Page whose humor and ability to explain natural phenomena are real assets So in this book you'll get step by step instructions on how to catch fish with bubbles helps if you are an auatic mammal with a tail spin a web and of course detach your jaw so that you can swallow a whole pigI was reading this at work and left it lying on a counter at the reference desk Half an hour later the librarian who relieved me on the desk approaches brandishing the book Have you SEEN this? This book is fantastic So don't take my word for it listen to young BryonAll my picks for best books to give this holiday are at

    I don't usually count picture book style books toward my yearly reading goal but this was a booktalk book so it gets to be an exception because I had to spend so much time with it This is really very clever as pretty much everything created by Steve Jenkins tends to be Kids love animals and this is a very fun way of exploring unusual animal behavior Written like a how to book with the trademark paper cut collage style illustrations used by this duo this book explores how spiders spin their webs how crows crack open nuts and of course how a snake could possibly swallow a pig It was fun to booktalk 'cause I treated it like a normal how to book until the directions just seemed too ridiculous for a human being to follow Cute fun well done
