Hello, everyone! Our book today is The Cookie Fiasco by Dan Santat, a fantastically fun story about division, of all things.
The cookies are ready! But wait… there are four friends, but only three cookies! How will the friends split their cookies equally, especially with a nervous hippopotamus who keeps breaking the cookies into smaller and smaller pieces! They had better figure it out soon, or all that will be left are the crumbs!
Dan Santat’s books are always a treat, and this one is no different! Besides cleverly sneaking in a lesson about division and fractions, the story is filled with silly, melodramatic dialogue that is a blast to read. Add in Santat’s gorgeous signature style of illustrations, and this is a wonderful book to share with little ones of all ages. Baby Bookworm approved!
