My Pancakes Taste Different Today! by Heather Wood Galpert and Bruce Galpert, earns the CLC Seal of Approval
Young Ethan always eats pancakes before he goes fishing. One morning after thanking his mother for making him the "best pancakes in the world," his mother explains to him that he should also thank the farmer and the lakes and streams and every other person, creature and entity involved in helping create the goods that went into making his pancakes. That day, with a grateful heart, as Ethan goes on his fishing outing he does just that. But at the end of his day he does something, unbeknownst to him, that would cause a catastrophic chain reaction of events. As a result, the next time his mother makes his pancakes he can't help but notice they taste different.
My Pancakes Taste Different Today! is a terrific book for teaching young readers about the delicate eco-system in which we live. Children will learn, along with Ethan, how one small and seemingly innocent act can have long term detrimental effects on earth. As Ethan realizes his blunder he sets to work righting a wrong and invites his friends to join him in making his community a better place for all who live there.
My Pancakes Taste Different Today! is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
