Count to Ten Piggy Wiggy: 03/28/08

Count to 10 Piggy Wiggy

My son likes to bake so when he was looking for books to read to Harriet at the library, Count to Ten, Piggy Wiggy by Christyan and Diane Fox was the perfect choice.

Count to Ten is a simplistic cake recipe disguised as a counting book. While the ratios are a little off to keep the counting easier, a parent could easily help a child cook the cake that Piggy Wiggy is baking for the bear.

Sean and Harriet both enjoyed the book. Sean liked making the connection between cooking and math. Harriet liked the silly illustrations of the pig.

Thanks for your review of this book. I like the idea of baking a cake while reading this book. My daughter would love to do that with me. "

Just have a simple white cake recipe on hand to refer to. The recipe is close but not quite right. Thanks for stopping by."

Thank you for stopping by. I've done a number of pig book reviews including many of the Olivia books by Ian Falconer.
