Most people have happy memories of helping prepare breaksfasts for the whole family. Chicky' Dicky's Animal Pancakes takes that pleasant theme and adds new dimensions to it. Rather than a human family having such fun, a group of animal friends have a breakfast party.
This book is beautifully illustrated with bright images that are small, like the little people who will have this book read to them. With so many animals and so much activity, there's plenty of opportunity for the adult reader to ad lib in some additionall ideas.. You will probably get some questions, too about where food comes from. Chicky Dicky doesn't take her hat off and won't say why. That can provide room for humorous conjecture as well.
After you finish reading this fine book to a child, you might want to discuss other events and times when family and friends can have a wonderful time by getting together an helping one another do things that are not nearly as much fun done alone.
