Who Like Green Pancakes? The title and cover had me thinking this book was going to be about experiments in the kitchen, but was even more pleased to learn it's about a young girl, her father, and most prominently featured, a busy mom who juggles home life with a demanding job as a nurse in a hospital children's ward. OMG...so fun, touching, and memorable are the adventures Glo (the nurse) experiences with her patients and family. "Wow, wow, wow!" I thought over and over reading from one situation to another. Helping young children understand more about the challenges and rewards of their working parents is a main theme of this beautiful tale, as is the chance to expose readers young and old to the goings on of time spent in a hospital and the caring and creative nurses who are such a vital part of it. Another A+ read from Brandy Pie Books. Thank you!
Thank you Kathy for such a wonderful story! I love the down to earth and very real messages in this book. Children will get so much more from this story than meets the eye... responsibility, love, loss, family. I'd give this more stars if possible!
Re: The Paddleboard Dog: I found myself rooting for the teacher, the students, the dog, tearing up and laughing out loud at the challenges and outcomes. This book hits so many rich, meaningful "feels"...a brave young woman starting her career as a teacher in a less developed part of the country and feeling a bit homesick living away from family; the teacher's desire to maximize the experiences of her students by taking them into elements to learn more directly; the teacher adopting a dog to provide her companionship while also helping to protect her students. Beautifully written and would appeal to readers from age 2 - 200. Fabulous!
Three-year olds have already begun trying to figure out the reasons for everything. If we live to 100, we will still be doing this. Our stories have something for the head and heart of any age.
Our books are the result of the self-guided labors of many, combined by The Invisible Hand that guides a voluntary marketplace.
Small children would rather play with the stuff in your kitchen cupboard than a toy. Ours are the “pots and pans” stories of living.
