TESTIMONIALS

This book has a quality feel and very colorful. The ideas for pancakes are creative and really fun. Hands-on experiences are best for anyone learning. This book will make the math concepts more relevant and meaningful to any learner.
Andrea L. Bergmann
This book creates a sense of independence in children by disguising teaching as play, allowing them to think in monetary terms while having hands on fun. Great for teachers, children, parents, or anyone who interacts with kids or wants delicious and unique cooking ideas to make for their families or themselves. The charming pictures, whimsical pancakes and interactive pull out format are sure to excite kids, foodies, and picture book lovers alike. A great teaching tool as well as a fun entertainment piece, this book has it all, inside of the classroom and out.

I am a kinesthetic learner, and “I get it” when I use this book because I did it and felt it. The experience is also how I remember it later.
Ava Crump
Did you like to play “restaurant” when you were a little kid? Lucy has captured the playtime fun of most all kids, but with a twist of teaching about how to actually make the food instead of using pretend food, and you can even print out money so you don’t give an empty hand of money to pay for your restaurant food. There are even order sheets which can be printed so they take real orders. I especially liked the rhyming, which teaches kids meters and the basics of rhyme. The book is worth it just for the recipes. Oh, and did I mention that the book is huge with fold-out pages for the recipes and real-life pictures, with “coated” pages so you can wipe it off. This book will give hours of fun to your children or grandchildren, or even your students if you are a teacher, while they are learning about math, counting money and giving tips, nutrition, rhyming and creative FUN FUN FUN pancake making.

As a third grade math teacher I can hardly wait to try out this book with my students! Along with the basic pancake recipe – which can easily be put together in a classroom as well as your kitchen – there are unique variations of pancakes to make with kids. The author has a website with free downloads of printables to extend the math learning. Filling out an order form and calculating the cost of the pancakes and also the change back from payment offers children a fun way to practice their addition and subtraction skills. I love using menus for math practice and this beautifully designed book is going to be a great addition to my library.
