Chaos is the order of the day when an accommodating little girl tries to keep up with the whims of a busy little pig. ( )

This is a story about a little girl who tries to satisfy the desires of a pig. The story begins when the little girl gives the pig a pancake and snowballs from there. Next, the pig wants syrup and then she gets sticky so she'll need a bath. The story goes on and on and eventually ends up where the pig wants more pancakes, which leaves the reader feeling like it's a never-ending story. ( )

If You Give a Pig a Pancake is a great children's book. I think children will enjoy this book because it is funny and cute. This book is for elementary grade levels. ( )

While I think this book is an acceptable choral reason book, I didn't enjoy it as much to other readings that uses catch phrases to help read along. One thing I did like is that the phrase 'if you give a pig a...' was in the beginning so student are prompted to read and be attentive at the start of every page, though it is not a real energetic phrase ( )

I love this book! I love pigs and I LOVE pancakes so how could I not love this book? This book is a normal Laura Numeroff book that I would read to children. It has kid friendly words, a easy language to follow, and it has great pictures. The pictures in this book are amazing, as are most her pictures in her books. If you give a Pig a Pancake is a wonderful book for children just starting to read. ( )

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
