Hardly a day passes without Trille and Lena inventing some kind of adventure that often ends in trouble. Whether its coaxing a cow onto a boat or sledding down the steepest and iciest hill with a chicken, there is always a thrilland sometimes an injuryto be had. Trille loves to share everything with Lena, even Auntie Grannys waffles. But when Lena has to move away and Auntie Granny leaves the world, it sometimes seems like nothing will ever be right again. The warmth of friendship and the support of family suffuse this lightly illustrated novel, proving that when times are tough, a little taste of sweetness can make all the difference.

“Grandpa, I miss her dreadfully,“ I said in the end, starting to cry again.
Grandpa looked at me seriously and said that missing people is the best sad feeling there is.“

My favorite part about this book is the emotion is brings and the love of family and friendship it shows through out it.

Adventures with Waffles by Maria Parr was such a playful yet sweet book to read. I read the whole book. It is about 2 characters named Trille and Lena and they invent some kind of adventure that often ends in trouble. Like sledding down the steepest and iciest hill with a chicken. Trille loves to share everything with Lena, even Auntie Granny‘s waffles. Then Lena has to move away and Auntie Granny leaves the world. It is all about friends & family

“she‘s my best friend, even if she is a girl” I chose this quote becuase it simply told the conflict that the character is feeling and struggling with

I would use this early on in teaching this genre becuase it is a chapter book but at the same time very simple and not too much of a complex story

This is a contemporary realistic fiction book. It does a good job of portraying children‘s everyday life becuase it tells a story that‘s applicable to almost all children and their friendships. This is a chapter book and I read the whole book to count it as 5 books

Adventures with Waffles covers a topic that is very relevant to its target audience: friends. The primary internal conflict comes from Trille wondering if Lena is his best friend. At the end of the day, she is. Cute story, would reccomend.

Snow ❄️ but only because we‘ve lived in Texas for almost two years. Ask me again next year when we‘re nearing the end of an Ohio winter.
