5.5 / 7.0

This story provides a delightful glimpse into a young boy’s big, generous heart. Adika is sure Mama Panya can make enough pancakes to share with everyone he is inviting to share their meal. Mama Panya is not so sure, but she is willing to go without if necessary. The story is heartwarming, and the illustrations are bright and exciting.
