Book Talk: Don’t Forget the Bacon

don’t forget the bacon pat hutchins

This is a very cute and short story about a little boy who is sent to the store by his mother with a list of grocery items to pick up. The little boy repeats all the things in his head so he won’t forget, only he gets them a little mixed up.

This story is funny and the rhyming is great. Rhyming is great for kids – those similar sounds help kids to relate words together and realize how similar many words are.

Pat Hutchins is a great author with many wonderful children’s books – you’re going to love this one!

This sounds so cute!! I love the cover too, it has a almost retro modern illustration. Eventhough I’m an adult, I still love flipping through sweet lil books like these.
