Don't Forget the Bacon! ePub download

A little boy goes grocery shopping for his mother and tries hard to remember her instructions.
This is a rhyming story about a boy sent with a pocket book of money and a four-word shopping list. It is a very quick read, two sentences per page is about average. The pictures are lightly drawn with faded ink for coloring. No glossy, high-value production in the art, but it reminds me of books from my childhood, so it has a classic feel that might appeal to the parents reading to their children. It is probably intended for ages 5-9. The story has a silly twist where the boy mistakes his list--instead of getting chicken legs he thinks 'chair legs'. He rhymes to try and remember the list and gets more confused every time he sees something else that rhymes with his list. (He thinks of getting a cape instead of a cake at one point and the artwork pictures him wearing a super-hero cape.) It ends rather predictably, but is a cute story for all that. It is a good story for practicing before going shopping to see how hard it is to remember what you've gone to the store for...as any person who has ever gone shopping inevitably forgets the one thing they intended to buy can tell you.
I bought this for a Christmas gift to complete a bacon theme for a friend who is expecting a child. I didn't know what to expect, but once it came I flipped through and thought it was actually pretty cute. It basically is a child who is trying to remember so many things on the way to the store that he ends up forgetting the bacon he went to get. It's a silly book that a child would enjoy. Also good for the reading skill of recalling. After each page you can recall all the things the child needs to remember thought the story! If your family loves bacon, and lives to read I would say this is a great book to add to your library!!
Perfect Baby Shower gift. This book is an oldie but goodie and one that was not duplicated at the shower.
I'd never have bought this on my own, but my two year old loved it in school. It's amazing to see her grasp the concept after repeated reading. The kid mixes up the shopping list items until the very end. Then after all that fuss memorizing the list he forgets the Bacon. Cute.
I remembered this book from childhood and discovered it again on Amazon. I bought it for my 4-year-old son who loves silly books. It is a regular in the bedtime book rotation and he even quotes it while we are grocery shopping. A classic!
simple book but my 9 year old had this when she was littler and it was her favorite book. I got rid of it and she missed it so.now purchasing again so she can share with her baby sister.
I love Pat Hutchins. Her stories are simple yet humorous. Her illustrations are bright and interest young listeners. Good for the adult reading as well as for the child listening.
We read this to our sons 30 yrs ago and will now read it to our granddaughter.
