If You Give A Pig A Pancake
If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

If You Give A Pig A Pancake is one of my FAVORITE stories. I can recite this story without looking at the words! The text is easy to read, silly, and accompanied by beautiful illustrations. There are so many activities that can accompany this title! I used this book to demonstrate a cooking lesson with preschoolers! I allowed them to make their own pancake batter. They made predictions about what would happen when they added specific ingredients. They especially loved enjoying a yummy snack! A sequencing map would be easy to include while covering this text. I think it would be fun for students to write about their favorite pancake toppings or construct a recipe and describe how to cook pancakes.

Pancakes, Pancakes!
Pancakes, Pancakes! (Stories to Go!) - Eric Carle

Pancakes, Pancakes! by Eric Carle  is a great children's book for elementary students. The main character, Jack, is gathering baking materials for his mother to bake a big pancake. Throughout this book, this can help children understand the sequence of events and can teach them what ingredients they need to make pancakes. I would teach this book to kindergarten through first grade. I would incorporate this lesson into the health standard, and English language arts standard too.

Review: Waffles and Pancakes A Lesson in the True Meaning of Christmas
Waffles And Pancakes: A Lesson In The True Meaning Of Christmas - Carol Ann Whittle,Cindy Springsteen,Wicked Muse Productions
I read this too A and K and I felt that the lesson within the story was a very important one for them know. Christmas is not just about presents it is about giving to others. Within this story a group of friends and their neighborhood are affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some kids may not get a Christmas so this group of friends decide to do something about it. When Santa sees their kindness he does something special for them. 
This is a good book to read around the holidays because it feels you with warmth to read about others doing good things for others.

If you give
If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Laura Joffe Numeroff,Felicia Bond

Throughout this book the snowball effect begins once the pig asks for pancakes and then syrup. The plot behind this book is a cause and effect pattern. For example, when the pig gets in the bathtub from being sticky from the syrup, he then asks for some syrup. As a teacher I would teach cause and effect and use a poster. On each side there is cause and effect written out. The students have to help me fill in the chart for each scenario that the pig goes through throughout the story.


Intended Audience/Grade Level: 5th grade, English Language Arts

Pancakes in Paris: Living the American Dream in France - Craig A. Carlson

I smiled and laughed way too much through this poor guy's trials and tribulations. I felt so bad, but he wrote in such a way that you could not help it. It's not a woe is me book. He does describe all his problems, but he doesn't linger on them. He complains how the system works and how unfair it is, but he just goes on trying to fulfill his dream.

I enjoyed reading and living Craig's dream. I found it to be very entertaining and interesting. It's amazing what people will do. Those French laws were definitely set up for the employees and not the employers. I am so hungry for an American diner breakfast right now. HA!

This is one memoir that I truly enjoyed and would definitely recommend. I also enjoyed the fact that it took place in Paris. One place that I always wanted to go, but never made it.

Thanks Sourcebooks and Net Galley for providing a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. This was definitely a winner in my opinion!
