50. Don't Forget the Bacon

Don't Forget the Bacon. Pat Hutchins. 1976/1994. 32 pages. [Source: Library]

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.
