A wee bit long for storytime, a boy wants pancakes for breakfast but he must accomplish all the tasks to make pancakes first, grind the wheat, milk the cow, churn the butter. In the end he gets yummy pancakes.

This is a cute book, but some of it is too advanced for a 24 month old. The wordless, "Pancakes for Breakfast" is better.

Jack wakes up for and immediately tells his mother he wants pancakes for breakfast! His mom is busy, so she has him help by harvesting wheat for flour, gathering eggs from the chickens, milking cows, churning butter, chopping some firewood, and getting some jam. His job was to get all of the ingredients together and to mix them, making the pancake batter. Throughout this book it teaches sequential order and could be used to a how to book for making pancakes. I enjoyed that the setting and time of the book was not placed in a modern day society because it gives the reader an idea of how pancakes were made in the past. If I were to read this book aloud, I would bring in mini pancakes and different flavors of jam to have my students eat after we read the story aloud. The students would be able to eat the pancakes while completing an assignment, which could be writing their own mini how to book on how to prepare a certain food.

Eric Carle creates the story of a young boy who wants pancakes for breakfast but his mother doesn't have the ingredients to make them so she ask Jack to help her get them together. This a great book to read to children so they know how certain foods are made.

Jack wants to make pancakes for breakfast but before he can he needs to get all this ingredients together. A great story to teach sequencing, or following directions.

Pancakes, pancakes! is a very informative and educational book by Eric Carle. The book is about a boy who wants pancakes for breakfast. His mother is too busy to make pancakes, so the little boy goes on an adventure to gather all of the supplies that his mother needs to make the pancakes. Pancakes, pancakes! is a very cute story. It is a good book for more intermediate or advanced readers. The illustrations are very colorful and creative!

A great book to read to children in grades K-2. The book has great pictures and can include several learning experiences while reading. With your class, you could incorporatee math by adding the ingredients to make pancakes of different kinds such as: plain, blueberry, chocolate chip, banana, etc. This book shows great pictures and is similar to The Very Hungry Catepillar.

I thought it was interesting how the author put the process of milling grain into the story without making the information seem boring. Then the process of making a pancake really made me appreciate how easy it is nowadays to go to the store to buy what we need. I feel that a lesson for kids could come from this.

This is a great instructional book. It talks about everything you need to make a pancake and where each ingredient comes from (ex: egg from hen). This book teaches students how pancakes are made. It would be a cute lesson to read this book to students and then to actually make each child a pancake. This could be a very hands on lesson for measuring out ingredients (math), etc. I think this would be a fun book to read students and they would love to listen to it. The illustrations are very colorful and exciting to look at.

This is a book about a boy in some gone time who runs all around to make a pancake (just one?) for breakfast. His mother tells him what to do every step of the way - he has to cut, thresh, and mill the wheat; he must feed the chicken and get an egg; he must milk a cow and churn the cream; and then it's all mixed together to make a pancake. There's no mention of baking powder or baking soda, so I'm guessing this takes place before the Civil War.This not one of the books by Eric Carle that has simple text and is suited for preschoolers. This is one of his longer, more detailed books for older children. Do not expect your baby to get much out of it. Your kindergartener, though, may be totally fascinated at the effort it takes to make a single breakfast!
