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.


Lexile Level: 670L

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!

Pancakes for Breakfast by Tomie dePaola
Pancakes for Breakfast - Tomie dePaola

Genre:  Food / Comedy / Wordless / Winter / Pets

Year Published: 1978

Year Read:  2016

Publisher: Harcourt, Inc.





You know, I have been reading Tomie dePaola’s works ever since I was a child and out of all of those works, I had never once read a book of Tomie dePaola’s that was…WORDLESS! Now, I have been reading many wordless picture books for ages, but I never knew that Tomie dePaola wrote a wordless picture book called “Pancakes for Breakfast” which was indeed his first wordless picture book!

The story starts off with an old woman waking up from bed, along with her dog and cat and she wanted to make a nice batch of pancakes for breakfast. So, the old woman went to her kitchen to get the ingredients she needed for the pancakes, but she realized that she did not have any eggs for the batter. So, she goes out to the barn to get some eggs from the chickens and after she got the eggs, she realizes that she does not have any butter for the batter. So, she goes outside to milk her cow and create the butter with the milk she churned from the cow and after she made the butter, she realizes that she does not have any maple syrup! So, she goes to her neighbor’s house to get some syrup and just as the old woman got all the ingredients to make her pancakes…

Does the old woman finally get the chance to eat her pancakes?

Read this book to find out!

Wow! For a wordless picture book, this was some pretty impressive work from Tomie dePaola, especially when you are so used to Tomie dePaola’s works having text to narrate the stories! Tomie dePaola’s artwork really sold this story as it shows how an old woman wanted to make pancakes for breakfast, but keeps on forgetting the essential ingredients to make her pancakes such as milk, eggs, butter and syrup. It was cute seeing the old woman try to obtain the ingredients for the pancakes in many different ways such as milking her cow to get the butter and milk, getting eggs from her hens and getting syrup from her next door neighbor as it gives the story an old fashioned and traditional vibe that really made this story stand out from the other modern day stories about obtaining ingredients for a recipe. I also loved the images of both the dog and the cat as it was adorable seeing them accompany the old woman in her need to obtain the ingredients for her pancakes.


Overall, “Pancakes for Breakfast” is a truly cute story about an old woman trying to find the right ingredients for her pancakes that many readers, who had to go through the same experience, no matter how differently they went about it, would definitely relate to! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.
