    Read as part of the Rory Gil Reading Challenge.The charming tale that captured originally captured my imagination as a child due to the movie adaptation, it s the heart warming story of a young pig on a sheep farm.Being brought up by Fly a sheepdog, young babe aspires to follow in the dogs footsteps by becoming a sheep pig.I liked how the movie stayed really faithful to the book, it really is a timeless classic.

    When I was in primary school Babe was the biggest blockbuster film and was extremely popular I remember our teacher telling us that the film was based on a book and when I read the book that I enjoyed it evenI was delighted therefore to have the opportunity to revisit one of my favourite childhood stories The story begins with Mr Hogget winning a pig at the fair by correctly guessing the pig s weight Originally Babe was going to be fattened up by Mrs Hogget but miraculously Babe esca When I was in primary school Babe was the biggest blockbuster film and was extremely popular I remember our teacher telling us that the film was based on a book and when I read the book that I enjoyed it evenI was delighted therefore to have the opportunity to revisit one of my favourite childhood stories The story begins with Mr Hogget winning a pig at the fair by correctly guessing the pig s weight Originally Babe was going to be fattened up by Mrs Hogget but miraculously Babe escaped Babe was then adopted by Fly, the sheepdog on the farm Babe then goes about copying Fly s mannerisms and he is determined to become a sheep pig Babe s journey throughout the book is very enjoyable as the reader wills him on to succeed The story deals with a lot of issues that are appropriate to a primary audience Fly s assumption that all non canine animals are stupid is quickly disproven once she met Babe This shows children that we cannot base ideas on people by appearances only Further the way in which Babe treats the sheep shows that he does not judge others by their appearances King Smith has written some brilliant dialogue within the book that really helps bring the story to life Further the characters are excellently described and relatable I would really enjoy reading this book to children in year 2 to upper key stage two as I think it is a very important story with themes that are important for all children

    Such a fun story I think I like the movie better actually and this book has a lot of charm It s clever and funny and show how far politeness can get you in life I think this is often overlooked and I think the world can usekindness and politeness I think Babe also shows that life doesn t always have to be what you expect The unexpected can be as much fun, evenso A bit of kindness can land us in the prize winning sheep dog circle I m glad I took the time to read this.

    One of the rare instances where the movie is better than the book I listened to it with my two daughters on a day trip in the car, otherwise I would have never finished it If you do decide to read it to your kids, get ready for lines like, the Collie bitch was pleased to see Babe growing up so strong And the bitch told the pig that the farmer was pleased with his progress After the 2nd reference to this term, and after laughing out loud at the surprise of it, I had to tell my 10 year old One of the rare instances where the movie is better than the book I listened to it with my two daughters on a day trip in the car, otherwise I would have never finished it If you do decide to read it to your kids, get ready for lines like, the Collie bitch was pleased to see Babe growing up so strong And the bitch told the pig that the farmer was pleased with his progress After the 2nd reference to this term, and after laughing out loud at the surprise of it, I had to tell my 10 year old that the term was not acceptable to use for humans and was especially derogatory for women When I went to discuss it further with her, she just rolled her eyes at me and said, I know, Dad, I know, jeeez After the 4th reference in the book, and with me telling her again that this was not appropriate for humans, she was completely irritated It was actually pretty funny and was perhaps the most fun and excitement we got from the entire experience

    Lovely Glad to see that the movie didn t deviate too much from the book.

    I hadn t read Babe in years, and reading it again was really great This story of friendship and adventure with a pig as the main character is definitely a classic and really worth reading.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Ok, despite that one absolutely AWFUL scene, this book is a solid 5 out of 5 stars I love Babe, I love all of the animals and I LOVE that by being polite and friendly, Babe was able to succeed in his chosen path He couldn t do the job the way the dogs could, he was too different, some would say it was a handicap, but he not only found a way to do the job, but to flourish in it He helped to alter the prejudiced views of his foster mother and on the humans who saw him work Just by being polite Ok, despite that one absolutely AWFUL scene, this book is a solid 5 out of 5 stars I love Babe, I love all of the animals and I LOVE that by being polite and friendly, Babe was able to succeed in his chosen path He couldn t do the job the way the dogs could, he was too different, some would say it was a handicap, but he not only found a way to do the job, but to flourish in it He helped to alter the prejudiced views of his foster mother and on the humans who saw him work Just by being polite, kind, open to others and true to himself Important lesson for any era, seems to be especially true for the current time I loved this book so much That one horrible scene makes sense, but SHUDDER It was scary There is some animal on animal violence in this book and a scene with a gun as a tool, not a weapon per say I would agree with the 8 12 age range recommended on the back of the book.5, HIGHLY recommended, stars Important lessons on manners and respect

    What a fabulous read aloud book I enjoyed it as much as my son My 5 year old would give it 100 stars I did omit the word bitch referring to the collie as it wasn t necessary and didn t want to get into a discussion of when it is not appropriate to use the word or how people could misinterpret it coming from a 5 year old.
