Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
In The Best Breakfast, written by Mona Hodgson, Peck wants to fix a perfect breakfast for all his animal friends. He fixes seed pancakes because they are his favorite food for breakfast. Most of his friends bring their favorite foods with them: Pokey brings cactus candy; Hoppy brings grass salad; and Speedy brings lizard soup. Hunter doesn't bring anything but his appetite. Peck doesn't like the foods his friends bring, but he puts everything on the table for everyone to share. When it's time to eat, each of his friends (except Hunter), eat only the food they have brought with them. Peck is disappointed because no one wants to share his food.

But, Hunter says, "We don't always like the same things."

Pokeys says, "God says it's what's in our hearts that matters."

And, Speedy adds, "Peck, your kind heart brought us all together."

Peck then decides breakfast was just right after all!

The illustrations, by Milena Jahier, are done mostly in shades of brown and are rather soft and blurry around the edges.

What I Like: The text is simple, and the message is a good one.

What I Dislike: The only things I don't really like are the illustrations. Although they are well-done, they're not bright, clear and colorful, which I believe would be more appropriate for a children's book, especially one for this age group.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 4-8.
