Peppa Pig and the Great Vacation, Candlewick. 2014
What did you like about the book?This is another book in the Peppa Pig series, which is based on the TV show from England. It follows Peppa on her vacation to the beach with her family. Peppa Pig does all the typical beach activities with no crisis, except that she misses her fish at home. Young children who have gone on a vacation at the beach can relate to the story and share in the memories.
What didn’t you like about the book?You would have to be a Peppa Pig fan to enjoy these books. Young children who have seen the tv show might like the books. This book would probably not hold much interest for the adults reading the book.
To whom would you recommend this book. Very young children, especially who have seen the tv show.
Who should buy this book?The children’s room in any library
Where would you shelve it and why? Picture books
Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles?Not really
