To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm afraid that I have to disagree with most of the reviews here. I'm a teacher, and I understand that humor is one of the great ways to draw children to reading. However, I find this book to be extremely distasteful. The whole premise is that the fox plays dirty, cruel tricks on the pig. He hides "stinky socks" everywhere, including in the pig's food! Yes, it's fiction, and children understand that it's supposed to be funny, but is this really the level and type of humor that we want them to enjoy and emulate? I think that the entire story teaches meanness and vulgarity - not the lessons I would want to impart to a young child.
I used it to read with a struggling reader in second grade that I am tutoring. It was a lot of fun to read and she enjoyed it. It has rhyming words and appealing illustrations so we had a great time and read it several times. I am sure we will come back to it again.
My 6 year old kindergartener loves this book. It's a level h book, and its perfect for her. She also loves to read elephant and piggie books. She likes this one more than the 1st one... I wish there were more of them!
This is a fun book to read with your little one because fox thinks he's clever, but clearly not clever enough as his practical jokes inevitably backfire on him. The rhyming is great for developing phonemic awareness, an understanding of letter sounds that helps a child learn to read.
