First of all I'd like to thank Cindy Springsteen for the opportunity to read this wonderful, delightful and very insightful childrens book.

Waffles and Pancakes are two hamsters who were bought from the pet store on the very same day. But their owners, Danny and Griffin, don't treat them the same way. Pancakes has a lovely new home to play around in with wheels and tunnels. Waffles only has a small box. But when Waffles and Pancakes meet up again, they realize that there are more important things than material possessions.

In the world that our children live in now adays they carry a burden so unlike those of their parents in many ways. Sure we have have very similar burdens, but our children's burden to keep up with Jones so to speak is so much greater. We all wish that things were easier, or that we had more than we do, whether it be money or material items as adults. And sadly, our children carry a heavier cross to bear because of the way our society has become.

Waffles and Pancakes brings back the innoscence that has been lost in such an easy way that it will have you, or it did me say "how did we go so far from the simple life".
You will find love brought back through these two incrediable, cute hamsters, simple plain unconditional love, the way we received it as children. The love of an adorable child, given to his most treasured possession.... his pet hamster.
Even thou it took one child who had the best of everything and then some, and then of course his pet also had the best of everything. Then a precious child who had the best of everything in LOVE, who in turn gave the best of his everything to his hamster.. his LOVE.

You as the reader will see that it all can be just as simple as it once was. Just by one act, the act of pure unconditional love.
Waffles and Pancakes is a wonderful book for everyone to read, to read and rethink our lives that we live now as adults, and then to read and learn to teach our precious children that you don't need to have the best of everything in life, if only you had and showed fove to others. Whether human or pet. Definetly "A MUST READ"!!!!
I give Waffles and Pancakes 5/5 stars.
