This bind-up collects three beloved Eric Carle picture books.

In Pancakes, Pancakes, Jack is hungry for a a big, delicious pancake breakfast. But first, his mother needs flour from the mill, an egg from the black he, milk from the spotted cow, and butter churned from fresh cream. Will it ever be time for breakfast and that large pancake?

In Walter the Baker, Walter is famous for his breads, rolls, cookies, tarts, and pies, and the and Duchess especially love his warm sweet rolls. But one day the cat spills the milk, and Walter is forced to serve the Duke and Duchess rolls made with water. After one bite the Duke throws down his roll in disgust and summons Walter to the castle. He threatens to banish the baker unless he can take the same dough and make a good-tasting roll that the rising sun can shine through three times. Will Walter succeed in his task, or will he have to leave his town forever?

The Tiny Seed is Eric Carle’s classic story of the life cycle of a flower, told through the adventures of a tiny seed. Young readers will cheer the seed’s progress as it floats across the sky, nestles in the ground, and finally grows into a giant flower.
