It was Mother’s Day and Mom wanted a pig as a present in the storybook Arnold The Cute Little Pig With Personality by Lisa Reinicke. Her two little boys found a pig for her and she named it Arnold. Not only did Arnold have a great personality, but he had a great appetite too. Arnold was always after food and he liked to eat trash. Arnold grew until he did not fit into his playpen anymore. He was sent to the yard and Arnold loved playing there all day long. Arnold was slowly getting chubby and was made to stay in the barn so that he would stay out of trouble. One night he ate a whole bag of horse oats and he was so full that he could not move. How did his mom react and what did she do?

The story is adorable and children will love Arnold’s character even more when they get to know that it is based on the author’s cute little pet pig. The illustrations are bright and colorful and they capture the personality of the cute little pig very nicely. The pictures also breathe life into the scenes and make them vivid to young readers. I like the manner in which the author weaves in the message of eating healthily and exercising through the story of Arnold. It is always good to convey messages, ideas, and concepts to children with the help of stories, illustrations, and interesting characters, and this story does just that.

In the book Arnold, The Cute Little Pig With Personality, for mother's day a momma gets a special gift from her children--a pig! This book is cute, heartwarming, and tells a story of how unusual gifts are sometimes the best. Arnold came to life in this story, with his little oink song, and his amazing appetite. I love the way the author allowed and used her own child as the illustrator. This is a must have for all on Mother's Day.
