If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff
The pig eats pancakes, he wants syrup, gets sticky and needs a bath. The bath leads to toys, a search leads to tap shoes which leads to dancing. After dancing, he wants a picture, and to write friends, on the way to the post office, he finds a tree that needs a tree house. Decorating the tree house makes him sticky that reminds him of the syrup, making him want a pancake.
This is a good picture book that runs the story into a loop. The loop show consequences to actions taken and how one thing leads to another. This is a good series for the purpose of showing how the things we do effect so many other things in our lives. Easy read for a quick story with a moral and the kids enjoy all the trouble the pig finds to get into.
