Kindle Books for Kids: Pigtastic!

Pigtastic!, by Scott Gordon, will entertain and teach children to accept people for who they are. Self-esteem and acceptance are the key themes in this picture book. This ebook is designed for young children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old.

About the Author
Scott Gordon is the author of several children's books, including My Little Pet Dragon, My Crazy Pet Frog, Pigtastic! and A Little Book About You. Currently he is hard at work on his next project, Baby Bee.
All of the proceeds for My Little Pet Dragon, My Crazy Pet Frog and Pigtastic! are donated to the family of Alyssa Mowery. Last October, Alyssa, her sister Rain and Amelia "Mia" Decker were struck by a car while crossing an intersection. Alyssa was put into a coma, and nearly died from her injuries. Two weeks later she awoke and spoke her first words since the accident. Her recovery is a miracle, but she still has a long way to go.

We Are All Pigtastic!
This 25-page picture book features a very cute pink pig. The pig teaches children that we are all different and unique individuals and that we are special and fantastic in our own ways.

The pink pig tells us that the way we look on the outside or the amount of money we haven doesn't matter nearly as much as what is in our hearts.

My Thoughts
I really like the computer-generated illustrations in this book. Children will be drawn to the close-up views of the pink pig. The expressions on his face complement the text and I love the pictures of the pig with angel wings. Each page contains a large illustration and two to eight words of text.

The message in the text is important for children to learn. All people are different but we all have traits and talents that make us special. We should not judge others by how they look or what they have, we should look at their "hearts of gold."

I suggest that parents use this ebook as a read-aloud story for bedtime or quiet time. The illustrations will keep the attention of very young children. Older children will be able to read the text and understand the message that the story is advocating. I think we need to take advantage of every opportunity that we have to teach children how to accept others and value the things that really matter. This book is a winner in the game of life!
