If You Give a Pig a Pancake is cute in that it follows causes and effects and that's a good learning tool for children, but I think that they could learn about it in a more fun and entertaining way. Honestly, I found it to be boring and after only one reading, my four-year-old niece put it away and never got it out again. The words have no rhythm or musicality to them, and the illustrations are only okay. This isn't a children's book that will engross children in language or storytelling. They will enjoy guessing the next random thing the characters' actions lead to and it is fun that giving a pig a pancake could lead to such crazy things, but that's really the only entertainment value. This isn't one I'd recommend.
