We’re looking forward to some seasonal baking and our favorite is baking cookies! We have some great suggestions for some cookie baking books, whether you like to bake, decorate, or just eat cookies! 

When you search the tag: #cookiesforeveryone you’ll see some great story options such as:

The Doorbell Rang by Pat Huchins:  Ma makes a batch of a dozen chocolate chip cookies for her children Victoria and Sam. Each child has six cookies. But when the doorbell rings and friends drop by, the cookies must be shared. The doorbell rings again, and again, and again...until there is only one cookie for each child. What happens if the doorbell rings again?

The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson: The horse loves hay, the chickens need feed, the geese munch on corn, the hogs devour slop, the dog eats treats, but the cow loves…COOKIES? This book presents an original twist on the ordinary barnyard book, with a clever exploration of a curious incident on the farm.

Who Took the Cookies from the Cookie Jar by Bonnie Lass: Children join Skunk in his search for the cookie thief as he interviews his friends, a variety of animals from the southwestern American desert.

Don’t forget to download your cookie counting and coloring page with a fun story song. You can sing it along with multiple well known tunes, including Twinkle Little Star, or Five Little Ducks.

Five Little Cookies
Five little cookies in the bakery shop
Shining, shining with sugar on top
Along came a boy/girl
With a penny to spend
He took one…and away he ran.
(Continue with Four, Three, Two, One, Zero.)

Making Cookies
I am making cookie dough. 
(hold out arms in a circle, like a bowl)
Round and round the beaters go. (roll hands)
Add some flour from a cup. (shake a pretend cup)
Stir and stir the batter up. (stirring motion)
Roll them, cut them nice and neat. 
(rolling pin motion)
Put them on a cookie sheet. 
(place pretend cookies)
Bake them, count them 1-2-3. (counting motion)
Serve them to my friends for tea. (take a bite!)

Great Big Cookie
I am a great big cookie, 
(circle hands over head)
Chocolatey and round, 
(extend hands out to sides)
Filled with lots of chocolate chips, 
(point to chips)
The best that can be found. (rub tummy)

I am a great big cookie, 
(circle hands over head)
Take a bite of me. (make chewing motions)
Tasty, sweet, delicious, 
(extend hands out to sides)
I’m oh-so-yummy! (rub tummy)

I WAS a great big cookie,
 (circle hands over head)
The very best around. 
(extend hands out to sides)
Now there’s nothing left of me, (shake head)
Just crumbs upon the ground. (sit down)

Who Took the Cookies?
Who took the cookies from the cookie jar?
(He/She) took the cookies from the cookie jar.
Who me? 
Yes, you!
Couldn’t be! 
Then who?
