    " Fun Fun Poetry. Just wanna eat it! "

    " I can't believe I've never seen this one before. Karma Wilson's rhyming text goes great with the silly pictures. Perfect for Story Time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess Brown | 1/30/2014

    " Your preschoolers and kindergartners will love this book! When sweet old granddad decides to bake a "whopper cake" for grandma, he means it! Trading a bowl for a truck bed and a spoon for an oar, silly granddad creates a cake big enough to feed the whole town! The rhymes were sweet--not forced at all (a la the marvelous Karma Wilson!), and the kids giggled and grinned their way through this book. What fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terrah | 1/28/2014

    " Violet especially loved this book. Both girls thought it was hilarious! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/22/2014

    " Our whole family really enjoyed reading this book together. We loved Karma Wilson's Bear Snores On and others in that series, so we were not surprised that this book contained the elements we loved in those books. The rhymes and rhythms are simply fun to read and fun to listen to. This book has the added bonus of being about baking a ridiculously gigantic chocolate cake. Who could resist that topic, especially a 3-year-old boy who loves baking and eating sweets and who loves silly verse? The real clincher here is the love expressed through the baking of the cake. It's a beautiful example for children of a man doing something amazing out of love and admiration for his wife and a positive portrayal of a happy, vivacious, and loving elderly couple. May we all be inspired to bake our own whopper cake for those we love most. "

    " The book fits with the Sweet Treats theme for the Book Time, especially as it will take place in July just like the book does. But I don't think I'd be able to read it well enough for a story time. I may have to book talk it instead. I like that there is a cake recipe in the back. But I'll admit that my favorite part of the book was the names of the two characters. Silly, I know. But my recently passed away great-grandparents had us call them Grandma and Granddad. They're the only grandparents who had us do that, and I've actually never heard anyone outside my family call a grandfather Granddad. So I liked reading that. And while Granddad might not have cooked up a whopper cake for Grandma, he sure did try to show how much he loved her in so many ways. "

    " I can't wait to share this "whopper" of a good story with my students. I plan to make the cake from the recipe in the back of the book to share. Yummy good book! "
