PreS-Gr 2–Baxter desperately wants to experience Shabbat dinner, the special Friday-night meal that ushers in the Jewish day of rest. When he learns that pork is a forbidden food according to Jewish law, he stuffs his face with kosher pickles and raisin challah, hoping to become kosher. He even tries, unsuccessfully, to become a cow. Finally, an encounter with a kind rabbi sets him straight

Adorable book about Baxter, a pig who wanted to be kosher. It's a nice story with a nice lesson on the acceptance of everyone/others. It is not until Baxter meets a rabbi that he realizes he is not kosher to eat.

In pursuit of kosher, Baxter eats kosher dills, pigs out on challah and teaches himself to moo. Finally a kindly rabbi leads him to the truth: "But," she asks, "why would you want to get eaten?" . While Snyder's glossary glides a little irresponsibly over the precise meaning of "kosher," this will nevertheless find plenty of use in Jewish homes, particularly among families in which one parent is not Jewish. author's note) (Picture book.

The means of discussion uses kosher food with poor Baxter as the comic relief not knowing he doesn’t want to be kosher. The illustrations were a mixed lot. Incredibly simple line drawings with a scattering of shadow and no shading mixed with photographs of real food. Interesting combination. And we follow him as he does everything he can think of to become acceptable.

While waiting for the bus, a man tells Baxter the pig about the joys of Shabbat dinner. But before Baxter can find out how he, too, can join in the fun, the man has boarded the bus. Soon after, Baxter learns that he certainly cannot be a part of Shabbat dinner because he's not Kosher. So begins one pig's misguided quest to become Kosher. Will Baxter succeed or will his dreams of taking part in Shabbat dinner remain unfulfilled? Readers will cheer as a series of misunderstandings leads to a warm message of welcome and community.

Exactly as described and what I wanted. My pot belly pig is named Baxter...wow, and I am Jewish by birth...what a book!
Silly Dog
Really cute and funny. Puts a good twist on Jewish traditions. I recommend the book particularly if you have a pet pig.

Awful book. I will have to find a place to donate it.

David Goldin's clever illustrations -- done in pen and ink with collage and digital enhancement -- are perfect for this story.
Baxter, the pig is ,attracted to the music and warmth of Shabbat and tries to become "kosher" so that he can be included.
His attempts are unsuccessful, until finally, female Rabbi Rosen invites Baxter for Shabbat dinner, where he proceeds to enjoy all the elements of shabbos and make quite a mess of his kugel.

This book will be the biggest hit with children who already understand kashrut. The rest will need an explanation.

My Take
It's cute with a nice introduction for children to the Jewish religion and Shabbat. The means of discussion uses kosher food with poor Baxter as the comic relief not knowing he doesn't want to be kosher.

The illustrations were a mixed lot. Incredibly simple line drawings with a scattering of shadow and no shading mixed with photographs of real food. Interesting combination.

The Story
A chance encounter with an old man finds Baxter wanting to be kosher so he too can enjoy Shabbat. And we follow him as he does everything he can think of to become acceptable. It isn't until he meets Rabbi Rosen that the true meaning of kosher is explained along with an invite to share Shabbat.

The Cover
It's a bland background which really causes Baxter to stand out as he skips down the sidewalk in his denim shorts and blue-checked shirt.

The title is accurate for Baxter, the Pig Who Wanted to Be Kosher is trying really hard.

This is such a winsome book. The illustrations are cheerful and interesting; I think children will be mesmerized by them. I love children's books even though I don't have kids of my own, but if I did, I would make sure it was in their library. The story has a very positive message about including everyone in your religious traditions whether they're official members or not. Laurel Snyder is an excellent writer and this fits nicely with her other books.
cute but features female rabbi so may not work for some families.
