If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Laura Joffe Numeroff, Felicia Bond

If You give a Pig a Pancake is a clever book written by Laura Numeroff. A little girl and pig are eating breakfast. The pancakes remind her of maple syrup which reminds her of the farm which reminds her of more and more. She is a very easily distracted pig. At the end of the story she is reminded of pancakes all over again. This book could be used with any grade between second and fourth grade. I could use this book for a lesson in sequencing of a story. I could also discuss cause and effect in a childlike setting. This book is a 2.5 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system.
