    This wordless picture books invites the "reader" to en

    This wordless picture books invites the "reader" to engage with his imagination and create a unique storyline.  Wordless books are perfect for non-readers or reluctant readers because the readers can free themselves from the stress of decoding the printed words, relax and calmly talk about the pictures that are presented before them.  




    This little old woman starts out her day snuggled under her toasty warm covers accompanied by her rather chubby cat and her brown hound dog.  She envisions in her mind a huge stack of yummy pancakes and decides to make them a reality.  




    The book documents the trials and challenges this poor lady has to endure to make those pancakes appear.  The book frames each step of her labour of love.  She first needs eggs. Well she has to leave her house on the farm, in the snow, and go gather the eggs from the chickens.  She then needs milk.  Where can she obtain milk? Not her fridge.  She must go and milk her cow, who luckily is not in her house but outside it and yes, she must leave to go fetch it.  Butter is next on the her list.  She can't just go and pluck it off a grocery shelf but she has to churn it.  Oh my!   Finally she obtains syrup to top it all off.  With brute determination, and a clear vision of that stack of pancakes before her, she tromps through the snow each time to make her dream come true.  The delightful twist of humour at the end of the book will have everyone smiling. The illustrations are cartoon-like, very witty and humorous, drawing the reader in enabling him to describe what is happening on each page.




    This charming, adorable, simple book is a perfect one to share on Pancake Tuesday or any day that needs to be kick-started with a huge dose of pancakes to enjoy.

    My Favorite Book as a Child

    This was by far my favorite book when I was a child. It wasn't until I was a bit older that I realized there were no words and that each time my parents read it to me the story was maybe a little bit different. Now that I am a bit older I now buy this book for friends and family who are having children.

    This has become one of our family favorites ... no words and wonderful illustrations lend itself to lots of interpretation and fun. It's a wonderful, funny story about a woman trying to make homemade pancakes ... from scratch and all that goes wrong

    in this day and age, it's great to see a story about making pancakes that involves going to the barn for milk and eggs, a neighbor for maple syrup, and all the fun and mischief that happens along the way ... so much fun to read and re-read. a favorite of my daughter from the age of 2 (and still now at 4). love it!

    We Love It!

    Every time we go to the library, my 2 year old manages to pick this one out from the millions of books there, and we always bring it home, she loves it, and she only gets to bring 2 books home every time. I'm going to finally buy it for her for a surprise. She'll sit on her bed and 'read' this picture book over and over and she'll haul it around the house. We love it!
