If You Give a Pig a Pancake
by: Laura Numeroff
In this week's chosen book, If You Give a Pig a Pancake, we see the story of a young girl and a pig who stumbles upon her making pancakes. It is a great book to use to teach children how to make predictions on the outcome and is also a lot of fun to do activities with!
Plot: A little girl learns what happens when you give a pig a pancake. One thing leads to another as the pig realizes it wants something different each time. In the end, the story comes back around to the pig wanting a pancake and the little girl is exhausted.
Make a "pig-friendly" pancake recipe.

Help your children develop their own "If you give a.." using their own ideas and predictions.
