School Library Journal Reviews Princess Pig

Princess Pig is tickled pink by her review in School Library Journal. Here’s the bit where the reviewer gives her verdict:

“Early readers will pore over the pictures enjoying each little detail. As an unusual approach to easy readers, with photos of real stuffed animals and their accessories, this is new and interesting series. The fact that the phonics are highlighted in such an obvious way should not be a turnoff. VERDICT – Parents and teachers can use these titles for reading as well as writing activities.” –Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
