From the creators of The Pencil and The Runaway Dinner comes the story of a loaf of bread, told slice by yummy slice! Three cheers for bread, HIP-HIP-HOORAY! Early in the morning the baker bakes a lovely loaf of bread. SO lovely, in fact, that by the time the sun goes down it's been gobbled up! Every. Last. Slice. Who eats it all? Well, the baker munches on its crunchy crust. The baker's wife eats delicious marmalade toast and the baker's son gets a tasty cheese and ham sandwich for his lunch. Let's not forget the dog, even he gets his share! HOORAY FOR BREAD! Slice by slice and crumb by crumb, everyone eats their fill of bread, with a teeny tiny mouse nibbling up the very last scrap. "Hooray" - squeak-squeak - "for bread!" But wait - there are some missing slices! Where could have they gone? Is there a tasty double spread just for YOU? This is a deliciously playful read-aloud from Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman, two of the most popular picture book makers of their time. Bruce Ingman experiments with a softer, younger style of illustration - his gentle, charming pictures complement the text perfectly. It is a book that celebrates bread, whether it's a yummy cheese and ham sandwich or some buttery toast. It rejoices for its crustiness and its crunchiness, its slices and its crumbs! What do we say? HOORAY FOR BREAD!
I borrowed this book from the local library first because of its fresh and cute picture illustration, after reading it to my two-year-old daughter, she absolutely loves it.
I ended up borrowing it again and again, and she enjoys to read it over and over, hence I decided to buy it and keep it at home. Start to love the work by Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman. Would recommend it a lot.
