Author: John Himmelman
Series: To the Rescue books
Recommended for: Preschool – Grade 3
Pages: 32

Synopsis: Farmer Greenstalk and his family have the darnedest luck. Broken-down tractors, kites stuck in trees―they’re always having problems! It’s a good thing they have such helpful farm animals on hand. This time around, the pigs want to pitch in, and boy, do they ever! The Greenstalks soon find, though, that life might just be a little easier without their help…
Pigs to the Rescue is a 2011 Bank Street – Best Children’s Book of the Year.

Comments: This book was recommended for toddler story time and it is funny! The pigs mess everything up while trying to help and it gets worse and worse. This is a sequel to Chickens to the Rescue, where the chickens help, but get everything right. It’s just not as funny. I can easily see the kids shouting “Pigs to the rescue!” and doing a lot of oinking on the appropriate pages.
