An Oinkrrific Day is one of the GREATEST books I have ever read! I love how all of characters have their own song and try helping Bernie to find his own song. All of the animals and pictures are so detailed and cool! I also love how in the end Bernie finds a song of his own!


Sabrina Tement, 11 years old

D. Lippold

Just adorable. Perfect for children 3-5. Incorporates music-making with the message of self-esteem.

K. Johnson

This colorful book is thoroughly charming and powerful in teaching children to listen to their own heart, find their own voice, sing their own song, and forgive others...all the while, learning about musical instruments and barnyard animals! Sure to delight the young~and young at heart.

T. Attama

A real treat with its sing-songy, yet powerful message. Follow your heart is a message every child needs to hear several times a day! Beeautiful , colorful illustrations are like the cherry on top!

S. Holloman

Awesome job tackling such a critical topic with accessible tools such as music and poetry. The accompanying coloring book can be a therapeutic or relaxing followup activity after reading the story. Younger kids need validation because they experience social pressures as well.  Kudos for a job well done, Dart!

"I love, love, love these books and can't wait to read them to my grandkids and children of my former students. The animal characters are so lovable and adorable. The message to find your own song, in addition to accepting those of others, is a reminder we all need. I highly recommend Jean's Bully-Busting Adventure Series!

"Jean Voice Dart's An Oinkrrific Day! sweetly sensitive partnering children's books are about finding your own voice, standing up to bullies, forgiveness, and kindness. Filled with beautiful illustrations by the talented Anastasia Yatsuneko, both books introduce children to many musical instruments as Bernie, the adorable runt of the litter, journeys through the farm. The storybook provides darling rhymes and enchanting pictures; the partnering activity book includes mazes, word searches, counting activities, coloring pages, and much more. These books are a great addition to family libraries. I can see these being adopted by Orff Schulwork teachers everywhere!”
