This book is similar to if you give a mouse a cookie. Great to read to preschoolers. The story does contain cause and effect of what happening. ( )

These books are loved by many! Young children especially love these books because they enjoy the interactive nature of the book. "If you give a pig a pancake," of course "he will want some syrup to go with it"... and the series of events begins! ( )

I think many will remember this book from their childhood. It is a fun story about a pig who wants something new with everything that he gets, very relatable. ( )

This is a classic that has been borrowed from me time and time again. It is a page turner in every sense. If You Give a Pig a Pancake is a precious book about a little girl taking care of everything that a pig says he needs. ( )

Book description
"If You Give a Pig a Pancake" is a story similar to "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". It is a book that focuses on memorizaton, sequence, and fluency. The pig incessantly ask the little girl for more and more things. It is as if the pig can never be fully satisfied--"If you give a pig a pancake, he will ask for some syrup. If you give him some syrup, he will get all sticky and need a napkin.." Read and find out the other tasks and materials he asks for. The story is quite silly and children will have fun reading it.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060266864, Hardcover)

"If you give a pig a pancake, she'll want some syrup to go with it. You'll give her some of your favorite maple syrup. She'll probably get all sticky, so she'll want to take a bath." You get the idea. Baths lead to bubbles, bubbles lead to rubber ducks, rubber ducks lead to wanting a trip to the farm. If You Give a Pig a Pancake is a delightful exploration of the scenario "if you give an inch, they'll take a mile." But who could refuse the whims of this adorable piglet? Not us, and certainly not the pig's young caretaker. Parents will feel a familiar twinge as they witness the pig's increasingly elaborate demands, and kids will be delighted that the story circles back around to the original pancake. Laura Numeroff and illustrator Felicia Bond--well-loved creators of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin--succeed again in concocting a marvelously skewed study of cause and effect that inevitably results in a riotous read-aloud. Your kids will ask for this book again and again, and you won't want to refuse. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
