School Library Journal Review

Toddler-PreS-After hearing about this porcine trio's busy day ("Pigs in tutus/lift arms high. Pigs in aprons/bake a pie."), youngsters will be able to tuck the animals into bed with the help of a magnetic flap (in a cozy, sleepy-time shade of blue) that encircles the book's cover and serves as a blanket. A perfect ending to a toddler's adventure-filled day. © Copyright 2019. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Kirkus Book Review

Three active piglets do everything little children love to do.This board book charms before the first page is turned, as the three titular pigs snooze peacefully on the cover beneath a cardboard "blanket" that wraps around both book and pigs, held snug by two magnets. What follows is a full and active day in the lives of the piggies, told in paired scenes with rhyming text. "Pigs in a blanket wake up with the sun. / Pigs in underwear love to have fun." The pigs appear to be siblings, rising together, going through their day, and retiring once again to their shared bed and blanket. Their genders aren't specified in the text; in Salcedo's delicate cartoons they appear to be two boys, sans hair, and one girl, with a sweet smile and pigtails. The three play together all day, racing, stomping in puddles, playing dress-up, dancing in tutus, baking pies, putting on a puppet show, and then washing up, brushing teeth, and tucking themselves back in to their cozy bed and blanket. The illustrations are delightfully playful and energetic. The piglets' day of play is so archetypal of an active child's routine readers easily forget the porcine nature of the protagonists, their snouts and twirly tails being the only reminders. These pigs are Everykid, playing hard, winding down, and sleeping peacefully so they can do it again tomorrow.A lovely celebration of the simple joys of childhood.
