No, not cats and dogs. Cats and pigs. Well, there’s one about a dog, too, but we don’t have that one. This month for Kids’ Reads I’m talking about If You Give a Cat a Cupcake and If You Give a Pig a Pancake.
Cupcake received these books as a gift form her Noni and Grandpa and they were an instant hit! If You Give a Pig a Pancake is her favorite. She loves pancakes. Maybe we should have nicknamed her Pancake instead…………
The stories start off by giving a pig a pancake or a cat a cupcake and the cascade of events that follow. They’re very reminiscent of what happens around this house.
If you give a Cupcake a pancake she will definitely get all sticky!
How did giving a pig a pancake result in a treehouse?
The illustrations in these books are great. They’re simple and clean. The pages aren’t cluttered so you can really see what is going on in the story.
I can totally relate to the above. Cupcake the hoarder needing a million toys and then deciding she no longer wants to carry them.
We were at the big red store the other day (Target) and Cupcake spotted If You Give a Dog A Donut and some begging ensued. I guess I know what to add to her birthday wish list. And I guess it’s safe to say that she likes this series of books. I’m sure you and your kids will love them, too!
