This little piggy went to market!

Misconception. A word that defines what most people think of animals today. Iím sure youíve heard of the story of the Big Bad Wolf, but did you know that wolves are normally very shy towards humans? Itís true! Most wolves would rather hide at the sight of a human, than attack them. And did you know that rather than eating their food, spiders actually drink the insides of their prey and leave an empty shell? Gross, eh!

From toads, to sharks, Pigs Arenít Dirty, Bears Arenít Slow covers all of the misleading ideas the public releases. Itís a great book for school projects, studies, and finding out fun facts. I would recommend it for children from the ages of 8 to11, as it is quite an easy read, yet full of everything a curious kid would enjoy.

This wonderfully illustrated fact-tastic book is a great read. I would give Pigs Arenít Dirty, Bears Arenít Slow 4 stars!
