Sweet story

We enjoyed this book and happy that we added it to our collection!

Cute story

This is a cute quick read for little kids.

My granddaughter enjoyed this book.

This book, although great reading for a child, was over priced. It had a pasted on tag that read 25 cents. I paid $3.79! When I tried to remove the price tag before giving it to my tore the top of the book!

Love, love, love it!

My daughter won't let me go a day without reading it to her and her memorizing it to "read" to me. I love it myself. The story is cute and witty and quirky and just so dang cute. I need more! ... for my daughter.

love it!

my 2 yr. old daughter loves this story and makes me read it to her over and over again!!! She just loves the little pig and thinks the story is hilarios!!!

not just for older children

This has been one of my daughter's favorite books since she was two. I also have a one year old who loves to sit on my lap while I read it to them both. The pictures are fabulous, and what a cute story. My little girl has the words memorized. I would definately add it to my child's book shelf.

My little pancake lover also loves this book!

My 2.5 year old's favorite food is you can imagine how many times I've had to read this book! I actually really like this one. The pictures are very detailed and it's just plain fun to read out loud!


This book makes me laugh-out-loud; it is so adorable and cute!"If You Give A Pig A Pancake" helps the child see what we as adults go through running after her giving in to her little whims and idiosyncrasies! Let's hope as she gets older she will understand what this book is trying to say:1) Appreciate and be thankful for your parent(s).2) Don't take life too seriously.3) Live life to the fullest and have fun!4) Be your own person.5) You never have to grow up. 6) Don't worry about trivial matters; just say "oh, go have a pancake!"7) Help others; what you give has a way of coming back to you-- DOUBLE.This is a great book for all ages; it is the female version of "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie." I highly recommend both books; great illustrations and short easy-to-read stories. Your child will be reading in no time if you read fun books like this to her, and simultaneously you'll be laughing as well!GO BUY THIS BOOK!


This is a book for children of all ages, not just 4-8. I have 3 children, the youngest of which is 16 months old. All three love it. The pictures are adorable (especially the pig) and the story is typical of children's thoughts (flying from one thing to the next). My 8 yr old likes to read it to the baby and laughs with the story which makes the baby laugh. If you liked the "If you give a mouse a cookie..." book, you will love this one also.
