50. Don't Forget the Bacon
First sentence: Six farm eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears, and don’t forget the bacon.
Premise/plot: Originally published in 1976, Don’t Forget The Bacon chronicles a young boy’s trip to and from the store. Will he remember everything on his mom’s list?
My thoughts: I definitely enjoyed this one. It is both predictable and delightful. I didn’t love, love, love the illustrations. Probably they date the book more than anything else. But the text is timeless and classic.
