"If You Give A Pig A Pancake" helps the child see what we as adults go through running after her giving in to her little whims and idiosyncrasies! Let's hope as she gets older she will understand what this book is trying to say:
1) Appreciate and be thankful for your parent(s).
2) Don't take life too seriously.
3) Live life to the fullest and have fun!
4) Be your own person.
5) You never have to grow up.
6) Don't worry about trivial matters; just say "oh, go have a pancake!"
7) Help others; what you give has a way of coming back to you-- DOUBLE.
This is a great book for all ages; it is the female version of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie." I highly recommend both books; great illustrations and short easy-to-read stories.
Your child will be reading in no time if you read fun books like this to her, and simultaneously you'll be laughing as well!
GO BUY THIS BOOK!
In this book we meet the cutest little pig, and the girl that owns the pig. She starts with giving the pig a pancake (a great way of playing with words with the kids), and when he gets the pancake he wants syrup, you find the syrup and he wants...... you are on the run untill you are back again on the last pages where pig's sticky hands reminds him of your favorite syrup, and of course no syrup without a pancake. Any child loves this way of playing with words, and playing with - what will happen next :-)
We live in Norway, and my youngest one understands only a little English yet, so I translate for her while reading. My dream is to have these books translated into Norwegian - what a treasure to give the small kids of Norway.
By the way, the book is also fun reading for older kids, and for grown ups. Why should the small kids have all the good picture books :-)

It is a cute way to encourage children's memory and illustrate how things sometimes go in circles.
A wonderful treat for a birthday or holiday gift.
