If You Give a Pig a Pancake
By Laura NumeroffIllustrated By Felicia Bond1998
Hey Kiddos! Most of you will probably be most familiar with the classic If You Give a Mouse A Cookie, which I read and loved when I was a wee little one, but my daughter is enamored by one of the sequels, If You Give a Pig a Pancake. Perhaps it’s her love of pancakes oozing with yummy syrup or maybe its due to the really awesome tree house the pig builds and decorates at the end. Whatever the reason, this book is a serious contender among some of the other more classic books we have on our shelves. It’s right up there with Sendak and Hurd!Felicia Bond’s illustrations make it a fun read. We particularly love watching the pig as it runs from one activity to the next with the little girl in tow, cleaning up after her. By the time the story ends, the little girl is so exhausted from trying to keep up with the little pig she is asleep with her head on the kitchen table, while the little pig is still going full force, starting on her second batch of pancakes with sticky syrup. As a mommy I can totally relate to that little girl….. Sometimes my little piggy can be a bit of a handful!
