    One thought on “Day by Day”

    1. The illustrations aren't my first choice of style so I made sure to read this a few times in a row, and I'm really glad I did. There's a wealth of detail and charm here that responds to close attention. The bird builds her nest while the pigs build their house, then nestles within her house while the pigs furnish theirs. I love the garden page especially, showing the worms, potatoes, and carrots below the soil and the leaves and insects and activity above. Love the lacey underwear when they take [...]

    2. Not sure how I feel about the pictures of the pigs down to their undies, as silly as that sounds. Hardly any reading for each page.

    3. Wonderful story of growing a home and community! I loved the rhythm and rhyme of the story; the simplicity of it, just so good. And the illustrations were so warm and inviting! Lovely tale!

    4. Susan Gal offered up some interesting ideas at the beginning, but chose not to follow those threads. First, she has a whole 1930s moving West theme, which harks to Steinbeck--very ambitious. Second, she has the pigs build a house of bricks as soon as they reach the West. Isn't there a natural 'third' coming up in this sequence? I'm not saying there's only one possible direction, but I was really hoping for her to take those two things and build on them. There was no building. She even brought ex [...]

    5. Day by Day by Susan GalRelease Date – July 10, 2012*A review copy of this book was viewed from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*Pigs, pigs everywhere. Day by Day takes us on a journey with pigs from the time they head out west and settle into their new homes till it’s time for harvest. They work together to make a new life for themselves with friends, crops and fun. Take the journey with them as each day brings new things.This was a very colorful book with a simple message even sma [...]

    6. Inspired by a proverb about birds building a nest, this story shows a pig family working hard to make a life that's sweet. Text is simple and follows a specific structure (i.e. brick by brick, pigs build a house; piece by piece, it becomes a home). Artwork combines many textures incorporated into the paintings of pigs and their surroundings. Admittedly the artwork is stronger than the story, but this book is a must see nevertheless.

    7. Loved the illustrations. Sweet book about community, but with humor in the pictures. Not for the stuffy crowd, since "layer by layer, pigs shed their clothes" after a hard day of gardening and do cannonballs in the mud. Boy bigs are wearing their tightie-whities and girl pigs are wearing lacy slips and camisoles.

    8. Day by Day is a piggie story that opens up and welcomes the reader. The pigs are the characters, but they are not the main attraction to the tale. The play and fun with each turn of phrase will capture the reader and invite them to enjoy this book over and over again. It's a simple and sweet book with fun and active illustrations.Reviewed from a library copy.

    9. I didn't particularly like the illustrations in this book. It was kind of sloppy in my personal opinion even though that's just the style of the illustrator. However it is a short worded book so it could be good for practicing reading. I think kindergarten students would enjoy this book because it is shorter and a fun story about pigs.

    10. Made me want to be one of the gang and hang out with those pigs. What a fun, sweet, and loving book. It made me smile many times. I'm happy I found it. It's a gem. Thanks to the author and all who worked on it!

    11. The story of the book wasn't that great, but the illustrations were really good. The story was about pigs living their life and building a home and farming. There was no rhyming scheme or anything, just a few little words on the page.

    12. Age: Infant - Preschool"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" ( feature review).A soft telling

    13. A community is built brick by brick, day by day. A group of pigs head west and begin to lay bricks. The bricks become a home and then they begin their garden inch by inch. Then neighbors come and the pigs welcome them to their community. Day by day they help create a home and a community.

    14. Bright and cheerful illustrations add breezyness to the story of a family cooperatively living together. Relies on repetitive openings to each page, "day by day," "kiss by kiss," piece by piece," etc which makes it soothing to read aloud,

    15. "As the seasons change, 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"--

    16. Day by Day may not be a book that pleases every reader. Picture books are so subjective, after all. But if you enjoy pigs in your picture books, then this one is a fun treat!

    17. The pictures are dark (in color) and I would not choose this book for a normal storytime but I think it would be a good addition to a Thanksgiving or harvest storytime.

    18. I actually liked the text better than the illustrations, which is rare for me. It is still a cute book about working together and the passage of time.

    19. I love the simple message that we live together day by day. Gal provides the right touch of silliness in the illustrations to keep young readers coming back for repeat giggles.

    20. A lovely, lyrical picture book that celebrates community and family. A new storytime favorite!

    21. Love the illustrations. The author succeeds at making pigs appear winsome and beautiful. Enough said.
