"Saturdays and Teacakes", by Lester L. Laminack

A friend told me about "Saturdays and Teacakes" a couple years ago, and I have wanted to read it ever since. It fully lived up to my expectations :)! This book was adorable! The pictures were sweet, the story was told in a very engaging way, and I loved to see the relationship of this little boy to his Grandma!

"Saturdays and Teacakes" is told from the perspective of a little boy living in a tiny town. One Saturday he wheels his bike out onto the street, just like he does every Saturday. Passing all the landmarks he holds familiar, he pulls into the yard of a very special person, who is waiting for him every Saturday... just for him! He helps his Ma-maw do some yard work, and then they bake and eat a delicious snack together before he heads back home to wait, with eager anticipation, for next Saturday.


  1. Is it not precious?! My dad always said it reminded him of his growing up years :) One of my favorite read-alouds when I was little!!!

  2. It was *so* precious! I can not wait for my Aunt, who loves children's books at least as much as I do, to read it, haha :)! Thanks for the suggestion :). We listened, even if we took our time about it :D...
