Saturdays and Teacakes [With CD (Audio)] Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Every Saturday a young boy rides his bicycle up and down country roads past farms, a graveyard, and a filling station, until he reaches his beloved Mammaws house. She is waiting for him. While she picks tomatoes, he pushes the lawnmower through the dew-wet grass. Afterwards, he always helps her make teacakes from scratch, breaking the eggs and stirring the batter. But the best part, he remembers, is eating the hot, sweet cakes fresh from the oven. Set in a small town in the Leave It to Beaverdays of the mid-sixties, the story evokes a gentler and more innocent time and place. Young readers will almost hear the sounds of bicycle wheels on gravel and the criiick-craaack-criiick of a metal glider in Laminacks richly detailed prose. Award-winning illustrator Chris Soentpiets images beautifully capture the relationship and the place, perfectly depicting the simplicity of an earlier time.
