The Lovereading4Kids comment
It’s the middle of the night, but little pat-a-cake baby wants to bake a special cake and does, with the help of three laughing, mischievous baby helpers. And what fun they have – mixing the ingredients, whisking, stirring, sieving and shaking. The story is told in rhyme that is real fun to read aloud, and Polly Dunbar’s illustrations are full of life. As the little bakers dance and frisk across the pages, it’s impossible not to feel as light-hearted and joyful as they look. The story concludes with the cake baked and on a plate, with a slice for you, and a slice for me – and a slice for the Moon, who turns up for tea. Delicious! ~ Andrea Reece

Are you ready? Grab a spoon! Because it's Pat-a-cake time! Come on Jelly Baby, Allsorts Baby and Candy Baby - Pat-a-cake Baby wants to make a very special cake and needs your help, what a job it is! Pitter-patter - get the butter! Glitzy-glossy - whisk in sugar! Jokey-yolky - add the eggs! Sipping-sopping - pour some milk! And don't forget the flour - sieving-shaking! Then there's the baking to do and there's icing to pipe and, at last, the all important ...EATING! A riot of rhyme and action, little children will feel stuffed to the brim full of magic and fun.
