At our house, we love Tomie DePaola. This fun wordless story about how complicated it can be to make pancakes for breakfast is a fun opportunity to talk about the process for making something, including tracking down ingredients and putting in the effort to create something delicious, and how one might be helped or undermined by one’s companions. Sound familiar? It makes me want to make pancakes for breakfast, or lunch, or even dinner.
