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: Menu & Cookbook Hands-on Math Fun, I grabbed it in hopes of learning. I was not disappointed and am 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 how to cook. I look forward to reading more books in the Kids Menu Book series.
