Bedtime Story: The Cookie Fiasco by Dan Standat

Read for: Children's Book Challenge

Synopsis: "Four friends. Three cookies. One problem. 
Hippo, Croc, and the Squirrels are determined to have equal cookies for all! But how? There are only three cookies . . . and four of them! They need to act fast before nervous Hippo breaks all the cookies into crumbs!"

My Review: Munchkin picked this book out at the library, we really love Elephant and Piggie books. Munchkin got a huge kick out of seeing Gerald and Piggie reading the same book he was reading and their brief interaction at the beginning of the book gives us a clue as to what the book is about. He of course loved the illustrations and the silly tone the book takes. It is definitely a math book, and even introduces fractions without it actually being clearly math or fractions. It is also a great book about sharing again without being an actual statement that might sound like nagging. Definitely a fun book that young readers will really enjoy!

My Rating: This was really a fun book to read, we of course love Piggie and Gerald so seeing them reading a book is always a great way to draw kids into reading.  We give it a rating of Four Paws!

Good Night!  Sweet Dreams!


  1. We haven't read this one yet!! I'm glad you liked it. We'll have to put it on hold.

    1. We didn't even know about these Elephant & Piggie in a books until you sent us the one about the grass, now we are always on the look out for them!
