Read full description of the books All Pigs Are Beautiful: Read and Wonder:All Pigs are Beautiful is a very sweet book. The author's love of pigs comes across in an endearing way. It is a very accessible non-fiction book, presented almost as fiction. The illustrations are wonderful.
There is no particular storyline, as the book is really a non-fiction book. All Pigs are Beautiful introduces you to many different types of pig and new vocabulary. It is a biased view of pigs, due to the author's fondness for the animals. It is not entirely factual, therefore; the facts are mixed in with opinion.
The book could be used in the book corner of an EYFS or KS 1 classroom. The pictures are beautiful and there are not too many words. It could also be used as a story at the end of the day, for example when an EYFS class were looking at or had an interest in animals. It could serve as a way into non-fiction for very young children, particularly in Nursery.
Read information about the authorDick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.
Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites. He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does.
Among his well-loved books is Babe, The Gallant Pig, which was recently made into a major motion picture, and was nominated for an Academy Award.
Dick lived with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.
