I received this book for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: What’s better than eating pancakes? Making a family day of cooking them (complete with measurement lessons), then feasting. Let’s see what Ms. Ravitch has in store for us here.
Story Telling: Ms. Ravitch has designed this book to double as a game book. We have recipes, but we also have prices on the ‘menu’ so the younger participants can play restaurant.
Likes: Learning can be fun. Ms. Ravitch includes fractions, along with money and time.
Favorite Recipe: I plan to try the ‘overstuffed pancakes.’ They sound great.
Conclusion: This is both a nice recipe book, as well as a good teaching resource. Have fun, and remember to not let the children get too close to the hot griddle.
