This Week at Storytime: Cookies!

Preschool storytime was filled with cookie-theme stories today. Here is what we shared:

The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson

This playful, rhyming picture book introduces us to a cow that loves cookies. The farmer feeds the horse hay, the chickens get chicken feed, the geese love cracked corn, the pig gets slop, the dog loves doggy treats, BUT...the cow loves cookies. Read this story and you'll find out what makes cookies so special for this cow.

Mr. Cookie Baker by Monica Wellington
Monica Wellington has a great talent for presenting realistic, informational picture books that are a big hit with toddlers and preschoolers. Follow Mr. Cookie Baker as he mixes, bakes, and then sells cookies. Includes a delicious recipe too! YUM!

Who Took the Cookies from the Cookie Jar? by Bonnie Lass & Philemon Sturges
The cookie jar was once full of delicious chocolate chip cookies, but now it's empty! Who took the cookies? Was it squirrel? Raven? Raccoon? Snake? Turtle? Frog? Or perhaps it was the army of ants that carried the cookies away! Not to worry, though, there's still plenty for all! This is a great read-aloud. Based on the popular children's activity song.

We also shared a big book version of The Gingerbread Boy and a flannel board story of The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ghost Story.
