When I went shopping to buy two children’s books for our children’s holiday book swap with some of my friends I felt bad not picking up anything for my own daughter.  We love Little Pea and Little Hoot from Rosenthal so when I saw Little Oink I had to pick it up and browse through it.  It is the most adorable book!  We finally made our way to it last week and both my daughter and I love reading it together at bed time.  It’s about poor Little Oink who is envious of all his friends who get to clean up their rooms, put away their toys, etc. where as he is forced to turn his room into a pig sty before he is free to go play.  It cracks my daughter up when his parents say they still see toys in his toy box because I’m always telling to make sure she puts her toys back in her toy boxes.  In the end after his room is a proper pig sty Little Oink rushes off to play his favorite game, clean up house!  If you have little ones who are fans of the other “Little” books definitely pick this one up.  I think it is our favorite of the three we have read so far.  The kids will definitely get a kick out of a little pig who WANTS to clean up but can’t.
