    4. Being the doughnut donut lover that I am, reading this book about the inventor of the hole in the doughnut, Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory, warmed my donut loving heart Not only did he invent my favorite treat, but he was a master mariner who saved peoples lives, was honored by the queen of Spain for his heroism, and who seemed practical, inventive, and humble This slim book is chock full of awesome historical tidbits about America s beloved pastry and its inventor.

    5. This is the story about Hanson Gregory and his invention of the doughnut while on a ship in the 1840s I had never really thought about the history of the doughnut before I saw this book, so the information was interesting to me I do think it would struggle to reach a lot of readers though, it isn t simple enough for little little kids, too challenging for kindergarten and first graders, and not interesting enough without accompanying doughnuts for any other age group I would use this book on the [...]

    6. I m not sure for what age the book was intended, but lacks rapport and rhythm to attract toddlers, has too many details fro pre K, and is just not very interesting for older kids Besides, as much as Americans are fond of doughnuts, I don t share the hype What do you even mean, those fried cakes weren t cooked in the center Did that cook need to have his hands transplanted into the shoulders It s really not that hard to fry blobs of dough through My grandma managed it just fine But it must have b [...]

    7. Both of my grandsons and I read this book on a recent road trip and we all thoroughly enjoyed it I m always up for a history lesson, and what could be delicious than learning the history of the doughnut Well, maybe eating a doughnut would be delicious, but .Fun and informative with delightful illustrations.

    8. How did the doughnut come to be This fabulous picture book tells the story AND a few larger fish tales as well I loved it.BUT I have a very great affinity for doughnuts

    9. Children s Book Picture book Do you know how the doughnut started Interesting book with lively illustrations about Hanson Gregory who went to work as a ship s cook and sailor He made breakfast each morning by dropping blobs of dough into hot oil What happened Well, the outsides were cooked but the insides were not and so the sailors called them sinkers because they dropped hard in their stomachs The young boy got an idea and cut the middles out of each ball and the doughnut was discovered He lat [...]

    10. What a fun subject for a biography Anything with the word doughnut in the title hooks a young reader, and Pat Miller s story reels them right in Besides the spare and delightful tale of how master mariner Hanson Crockett Gregory invented doughnuts, it s the pictures that delight Vincent X Kirsch s watercolor, black gesso, glue and, cut hot press watercolor paper illustrations are so clever Each double spread has the text formatted inside a cutout circle on an illustrated page, with the inside cu [...]

    11. What a fun topic I d never heard this story before, so the image on the cover had me scratching my head trying to figure out what a sea captain had to do with doughnuts Answer everything This is a fascinating story of a young man who saw a problem and found a solution The use of round shapes on the interior illustrations cleverly tied the doughnut theme to the sea theme, and the entire story is told and illustrated with wit and enthusiasm THE HOLE STORY OF THE DOUGHNUT is an excellent biography [...]

    12. Who doesn t love doughnuts And yet I had no idea who invented them Hanson Gregory was a young ship s cook when he discovered a better way to cook the sinkers sailors traditionally ate for breakfast This is a charming picture book biography for young readers on each page the illustration or text is within a circle, like a porthole, or a doughnut

    13. Not as fun as we thought it would be based on the illustrations Lots of interesting facts and premise Now a wants to know what about the long johns.

    14. A fascinating look into the invention of the delicious donut I enjoyed the art design and the back matter material.

    15. I love when I find a delightful biography and about DONUTS, no less The inventor of the donut was Henson Gregory, a cook s assistant aboard a sailing ship in the mid 1800 s He discovered that the fried cakes served every morning would be crisp on the outside but raw in the middle That creates quite a stomach ache So he used the lid off the pepper can and cut holes in the middle of the dough cakes Then he threw both the rings and the holes into the bubbling lard The restult might have looked weir [...]

    16. Explaining the true origin of the doughnut hole is almost as difficult as saying no to a second, freshly fried doughnut Miller uses flashback done in italics and regular font to help the reader visualize the time jump Font is large, heavy, helping to set the mood for a strong story.Each page has a round frame for the text or illustrations, done in watercolor, black gesso, and cut hot press watercolor paper.Italics The Author s Note is almost as interesting reading as the text Could only have bee [...]

    17. I liked the book for the most part I don t know if the author felt that the real story needed embellishing and added the sailor s tales of the doughnut origin, or if they were really part of the true story To me, they felt incongruous to the rest of the invention s story Since the book is classified as a biography, I would hope not I think the book would have been better had they been left out.

    18. I loved every nuance of this book Beautiful illustrations, literary language, word placement in the hole on each page I liked the timeline feature as well I will be taking this book in to read to my class

    19. I liked the tie in with Dunkin Donuts, the examples of a timeline, mention of primary sources and a bibliography would be helpful in teaching those text features to kids Fun to read and serve with donuts of course too.

    20. Fun story about my favorite treat doughnuts Who knew the origins of the doughnut was a nautical one Children will be entertained by this delish discovery.

    21. While you receive the HOLE story of the doughnut, you do not receive the WHOLE story of the doughnut Enjoyable.

    22. Excellent artwork and an approachable intriguing biography Read this aloud and celebrate doughnuts.

    23. Interesting bit of history, although some of the spreads the tall tales seemed unnecessary Photograph and timeline in back matter were helpful Students appeared interested.

    24. Interesting and fun, but I found I kept skimming the text Definitely all about the way they cut out the illustrations All about it.3.5

    25. Quirky nonfiction that could be in a middle school classroom too as a mentor text for idea and topic generation.

    26. My son and I read this library book a number of months back I suspect we will read it again A unique subject And discussions about food are a welcome topic
