Quickly The Magic Spatula book review by Ella Culbertson

This fun read by authors Jeryl Abelmann and Miriam Kronish tells the story of a brother and sister reminiscing the pancakes prepared by their mother through their childhood and adult life.  As an adult, Quickly The Magic Spatula was easy to relate to as we can all point to everyday items such as a spatula that allow us to recall favorite memories.  For a three (and three-quarters) year old girl, the book was about pancakes and fancy red high heels – both of which are pretty high on Ella’s list of favorite things. 

We enjoyed reading the children’s book Quickly The Magic Spatula together – for one of us it was a reminder that the best family memories stem from everyday routine, and for one of us it was a good reminder to ask mommy to bake pancakes in the morning!

Quickly’s Magical Pancake Adventure

The follow-up story to Quickly the Magic Spatula by Jeryl Abelmann and Miriam Kronish revisits Quickly, the spatula, and his new friend Bernie, also a spatula.  The story is interesting and entertaining, working in history and cooking tips into a kids travel story.  The authors do a fantastic job throughout the book of introducing new vocabulary words for early readers and providing great context to understand the new words.  Both Ella and I love the illustrations of all of the different types of spatulas that Quickly and Bernie run into throughout the book.

This book is multi-functional, serving as a bedtime book, pancake cookbook and travel book.  After reading a few chapters of the book at bedtime, we always discuss all the different pancake recipes that we want to try on the weekend.
