It starts with a grumbling tummy.

And a dream of something yummy.

What is it time for?

Pancakes!

Tyler and his dog, Tofu, are hungry for blueberry pancakes.

They are so good to eat—all fluffy and juicy and hot. But the real fun is making them.

First you need a chicken, a cow, a few blueberry bushes, some special trees, and lots of mixing, flipping, and topping.

Chickens? Trees? We’re still talking pancakes, right?

Yes we are, and Tyler and Tofu find out just how it’s done, all before sitting down for the best breakfast ever!

Do you think pancakes come from a box? Not really! So let Food Network star Tyler Florence and Craig Frazier take you on an adventure from farm to mouth. You’ll learn how we get the best ingredients and discover that the most important one of all comes from the heart.

I love Tyler Florence, I love what he has done for children’s food and education both at home and in the school systems. His education has been a really blessing to many and his cooking shows are humorous and make cooking fun and enjoyable, less than a chore. This book is cute and creative. It’s like stick-figures with extreme personality and color and I like it. Take something like a Pancake recipe and dissect it and explain visually for a kid what all the ingredients are and where they come from. It’s a science project and a history lesson. I think that an entire series of these books from different simple recipes would be awesome.
