" FTC disclaimer: I received a copy of this for review. It did not affect my opinion.This is such a cute book. Where was this type of book when I was growing up? So interactive on many levels. Highly recommend it. Cute ideas for pancakes, too! " said.

" I won this book on Goodreads.I gave it to my granddaughters ages 5 and 7 who like to play restaurant. They didn't seem thrilled with it but who knows if they will play with it or not. I haven't heard. I was not impressed when looking through it. " said.

"I volunteer for an underfunded school library so I was pleased to receive this book as a giveaway. I really like the pancake recipes, and the thick semi board glossy pages will stand up well to use in a kitchen. The math aspect of asking folks to print up order pads and pretend order to practice math seem to me would work well in a classroom presentation, but as a book in the library to be taken out by kids,it just adds confusion. A version of the book as a straight ahead pancake book, would be better.
Nevertheless, I think this book will be an interesting addition to the library.

"I received this as part of the Goodreads First Reads Program for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

Overview: Pancakes are more than just a breakfast meal. They can also make one of the best teaching aids. Just ask Ms. Ravitch.

Likes: This book doubles as both a recipe book and a game book. Let your children play restaurant while you fix pancakes. We have fractions, multiplication, money and time management included.

Conclusion: This was fun, and I plan on making those overstuffed pancakes first. They sound great.

I can see this being a book with appeal for kids. Parents/Caregivers/Grandparents can have kiddos pick a picture, go get ingredients and cook with kiddos. A good way to teach independent living skills: learn how to follow a shopping list, learn how to follow a recipe and practice cooking. Its simple enough that I think kids will be able to follow it.

You can also just read it through with it rhythmic phrasing and pictures it can just be a book to read.

It can also be a great game for kids where they can play diner. Print out money and order your food. Do basic math.

Pretty interesting book. Worth a look see. Probably really fun for homeschoolers.

"I confess, I am a mom and I do not know how to make pancakes. So when I saw Lucy Ravitch’s book, The Pancake Menu: What will you order? Menu & Cookbook Hands-on Math Fun, I grabbed it in hopes of learning. I was not disappointed and happy to say I have a better idea of how to make pancakes now.

The Pancake Menu starts off with colorful pictures of all the recipes in the book. On these pictures are also prices that you can use to teach your children math when you order the pancakes. In the back of the book are the cooking tips and actual recipes for each item that was pictured. Ravitch has a bunch of pancake recipes in this book that I have never heard of. Such as Flying Saucer Pancakes and Overstuffed Pancakes. One thing is that they all look fun to make. The recipe I look forward to trying the most is the Alphabet Pancakes. Making letters and names would be fun. The hardest part of this recipe looks to be learning how to write mirror image. But thanks to Ravitch’s helpful tip about writing the letters out on paper she makes me feel confident that I could do it.

The Pancake Menu is the first book in the Kids Menu Book series. I think a cookbook for kids is a great idea. It would even be helpful to adults like me who are still earning hoe to cook. I look forward to seeing more book in the Kids Menu Book series.
