Kid Konnection: Tyler Makes Pancakes
Tyler Makes Pancakes, by Tyler Florence and Craig Frazier, is a cute picture book to share with little ones. After young Tyler dreams of pancakes in outer space, he decides to surprise his mom and dad with pancakes for breakfast and heads out to the market to buy the ingredients. Mr. Jones, the owner of the market, helps him gather the ingredients, explaining a little about each of them along the way. The pancakes Tyler prepares are a hit with his parents.
The story of this book is cute, but not particularly original. However, there is a recipe for Tyler’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes and a little “Did You Know?” page in the back of the book that make it stand out. Craig Frazier’s illustrations are adorable and young readers should get a kick out of Tyler’s dog’s antics. It would be a lot of fun to read Tyler Makes Pancakes with a little one and then cook blueberry pancakes together. If you know a youngster interested in food or cooking, you’ll want to check this book out.
