Kid Konnection: Tyler Makes Pancakes

June 9, 2012

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.

    Did it explain (in the back) the difference between pancakes and hotcakes? I know they are basically the same, but I really want an explination. LOL It sounds like a cute book.
    Hope you had fun at BEA.

    Interesting how many kids books are about pancakes! I guess because they are a fun thing that kids can help with.

    I like the idea of a recipe in a childrens read – that would be fun to read before breakfast and then make them!

    This one works for Kid Konnection and Weekend Cooking. I do think the reading and cooking would be fun for little ones.

    Looks like a great learning opportunity for Gage. We haven’t cooked together yet, but we may give it a try in the next few months. Thanks for the idea 🙂
