The Cake That Mack Ate

The Cake That Mack Ate shows children quite a bit of the details that make a cake possible.

A lot of things make up a cake, so one should not waste it.

Full Review

Patterned after This is the house that Jack built from Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes, The Cake That Mack Ate leads us through important steps in the making of a cake; right to Mack’s enjoyment of it. The surprise ending never stops being fun, and children will pay more attention to the actual building of the cake in subsequent readings.

Most illustrations are clear and easy to see, though a few get too busy in a way that impedes judgment of depth.
