Tallulah loves to cook and in this crazy-quilt-color story, she and her friends make delicious pancakes. The instructions are given step by step, with plenty of warnings about safety and cooking tips. There's not really a plot, as the point of the story is walking a child through the pancake cooking process, but the colors are bright and attractive and there are plenty of little accidents to provide humor along the way. I found the actual recipe difficult to read since it was cluttered in with the colorful art, but I see this is a popular picture book so probably that's just my poor eyesight.
Verdict: This book is best suited for caregiver-child interaction, unless you happen to have a stove in your storyroom!
