Looking for the modern equivalent of Charlotte's Web? Your search is over, because Cynthia Kadohata has delivered. Protagonist Becca, with the same tenderness and care as Fern, finds a baby pig on a family walk and begs her parents to nurse it back to health. Since she is a quadruplet in a family with limited income, this is a tall ask. But Becca wins out, and Saucy—named for her plucky behavior—joins their household, and as you can imagine, antics soon ensue. A stellar read-aloud that would make a sweet addition to animal lovers' bookshelves.
