Reviews - What do customers think about If You Give a Pig a Pancake (If You Give...)?

Dr. Seuss's Successor  Mar 25, 2008
If you could name one factor that helped me to fall in love with teaching once again, it would probably come from reading 'If You Give a Pig a Pancake' to a preschooler. While there were other factors for sure, this is not a hyperbole, for I know of no other top reason to fall in love with teaching better than with Laura Numeroff and her whimsical set of cyclical stories. My only regret is that while becoming winded by laughing out loud during the famous pig show, I may have startled the poor preschooler whom I know wasn't as enthralled as I was with the didactic lunacy of this kiddie book gem.

And I've read a lot of books to kids of many ages. Dr. Seuss comes to mind because of her genius and the hijinx that no one has been able to match. Besides fun and entertainment, there is a message. The children in each of these books are all doting hosts for their wild animal guests. Personification is not present. It is child-onification that takes place. The animal prima donnas are a parents' joy and nightmare. They go from one enthralling messy project to another, leaving the child helpless and exhausted by the end. Both the children and adults get and give the appreciation they deserve.

And it all wouldn't work nearly as well without the remarkable artwork of illustrator Felicia Bond. While all of the books are worthy (If You Give a Moose a Muffin (If You Give...), If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Mini Book and CD (If You Give...)et al) 'If You Give a Pig a Pancake' was the first I read; the others in the series are also a treat, but this one still stands up as the best for its photo finish.

('The Berenstain Bears' are heartwarming, but I've yet to find a better read for the little ones. Forced in a pinch, this is the one I find to fill in the gaps.)

(This review is dedicated to Judy K. Polhemus and all the other school librarians who give us so much service with a smile.)
It's for the kids stupid!  Feb 12, 2008
Another great book by the author. Kids love it - everything imaginative and possible - the same ingredients that have give us great movies - imagination and tapping the world of a child, viewed as a child. For adults, well, we know that we really wouldn't invite animals into our homes and treat them like adults - but you're missing the point, but maybe you are supposed to, because you are no longer a child. If you adults want to read for your own personal adventure and enjoyment check out sections for adults. Duh!
Pigs + Pancakes = Trouble.  Feb 11, 2008
If you like pigs then this fun filled book is deffinatley for you. i would recommend this book to ages 5-8. This book is about a pig who starts with a pancake and end's up with so much more, like some pictures, bubbles, even building a tree house plus more! But then everything goes wrong...
Pigs and Pankcakes?!  Dec 7, 2007
Oh, yes. This is a great one. The little pig is just so cute and very demanding. She makes the littl girl work really hard to keep her happy. It is a sweet story. My three year old has it memorized...I probably do to!! Great book!
Another great beginning reader book  Mar 26, 2007
