Susan Gal offers a heartwarming tale of old-fashioned goodness. The industrious pigs of Day by Day build a home, plant a garden, help their neighbors, and then gather in a harvest grown with hard work and kindness.160; The language is sweet and simple: Day by day, the seasons turn. Shoulder to shoulder, pigs gather the harvest. Hand in hand, pigs give thanks, then cheek to cheek, they dance. The artwork is bright and full of the merry antics of a happy family and a tight-knit community.160; And these pigs are flat out adorableThis delightful story celebrates family and community, caring and sharing.
A family of hard working pigs motor across the country in overloaded jalopies, headed west to create a home in a 1930s setting.

With computer art that feels more like a skilled crayon collage, this picture book evokes the feeling of home and happiness.
