Elena Ruth's Very Own Pancake Cookbook
Six animal friends-Sally Sparrow, Carla Crow, Michael Mouse, Ronald Rabbit, Betty Bear and Sunny Squirrel offer whimsically illustrated recipes, ingredients listings, and measurements for Sesame Seed Pancakes, Corn Pancakes, Blueberry Pancakes, Nut Pancakes, Cottage Cheese Pancakes and Carrot Pancakes. The author and illustrator writes, "I love to cook and bake. And I love to cook and bake with my granddaughter, Elena Ruth, who lives in Minneapolis. Since my only opportunity to spend time in the kitchen with Elena is when I visit from Seattle, I decided to create a cookbook for her. Whenever she would prepare a recipe from it, I would be with her in spirit. Much to my delight, she has used this pancake cookbook often."
Elena Ruth says of her grandmother, "She has a very silly sense of humor. I think it's because she was a preschool teacher for sixteen years. That can make you kind of goofy, and not embarrassed to do crazy things."
