This is a wordless picture book about a woman who attemps to make herself pancakes for breakfast.
This is an incredibly charming book. Readers are walked through the process of making pancakes including collecting eggs, milking a cow and churning butter. The deceptively simple pictures reveals the thoughts and emotions of the woman beautifully. A second reading reveals the impending mischieviousness of the dog and cat are revealed. Unlike a book with words, this book allows both parent and child to be active in telling the tale. An older child could even tell the story herself even without a high reading level. The straighforward plot really gives a child a strong sense of the structure of a story. I can see this being a favorite for years.
