Outstanding for toddlers and young, beginning readers, Cindy Springsteen’s Waffles & Pancakes is a wonderful book. The lesson taught is a timeless one.
The parents of Griffin and Danny, two lads in the same class at school, purchase Waffles and Pancakes for their boys on the same day. The boys didn’t know they had each received a pet hamster on the same day, though.
The hamsters reconnect as the plot develops. Griffin and Danny’s play date brings the hamsters back together. Pancakes has a lavish hamster home, which astonishes Waffles since he just has a little box. Waffles soon finds out that while Danny plays with him almost constantly after school, Griffin seldom ever plays with Pancakes.
Both adults and children can benefit from the story’s lesson. The message of unconditional love will resonate, too.
My two-year-old granddaughter found the tale to be quite interesting. She felt sorry for Waffles at first, but she soon came to the conclusion that Danny’s affection was far superior to many of Griffin’s offerings.
The story’s appeal is enhanced and made more enjoyable by the vivid and winsome visuals.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and voluntarily chose to give it my honest review.
