This feels like it would be a great story time book. Kanga goes around asking all the animals "Who ate all the cookie dough?" Nice repetition and rhyme and a surprise ending. Will try to remember to try it this fall.

Used in PJ Story Time and they loved identifying the animals, we had to go back to check out the ending.
A cute story that kept both my 5 yr old and 3 yr old twins engaged. Mother kangaroo is wondering who ate all the cookie dough and goes around asking all the animals, which are done in adorable illustrations. The surprise ending even had me guessing. Barely enough words to make a level 1 reading book, but still a fun read.

Eeny meeny miney moe! Who ate all the cookie dough? Kanga an her friends are on a hunt to solve this cookie mystery. As clues unfold we are introduced to friends that helps us come closer to the cookie dough bandit.

The author uses rhyme, rhythm and repetition as the primary craft of writing the story. He implements these concepts well by using sentences that play to the ear that engages young readers. Also, repetition was effectively used in that it allowed novice readers to predict sentence an

Oh my gosh, I love these critters. The cheetah is especially adorable. All the animals are gorgeous and so expressive. I love the use of the page. A great picture book for young kids. Sparse pictures and wording work so well together to draw attention to what matters. The rhyme is easy to read, nice repetition, gets the young ones reading along. Very sweet and fun with a surprise ending. Loved it.
I liked Who Ate All the Cookie Dough because it got the kiddos thinking. Every few pages, I would ask the crowd who they thought took the cookie dough, and the kids had fun giving their answer and explaining why. I haven't had a kid guess correctly yet, even though there is a hint on the cover!

Good for Pre-K and K storytime.
This book would be great for the young students. The book turns into a fun game of discovering who are the cookie dough. This book would be a great 'make your own prediction' book. The surprising ending would be great to show students that some stories have an unexpected turn of events.
This is a great book for storytime. I used it for a 3 yo daycare class and they loved trying to guess who ate all the cookie dough, and never guessed the ending. The simple, repetitive rhyme encourages the kids to participate, too. A definite hit.
i read this book multiple times to a kindergarten er, and a one-year-old today, and once with a third grader. They all enjoyed the book. We made the sounds the animals make. They were all surprised by the ending. It is a really good book to read with children. I asked them all if they like cookies and if they ate the cookie dough. We could follow this book by playing who stole the cookies from the cookie jar.

This is a fun and appealing book for all ages. The author takes readers through many different animals to ask them who ate all the cookie dough. It allows readers to introduce new animals and make animal noises. This is a great book for a read aloud as well.
When I read this book to myself, I did not see the appeal. But, I just read it aloud for story break and it had them engrossed, especially the kid who was all surly thru most of the story time. Plan on using it again!

"Who ate all the Cookie Dough?" does not have lot of writing and every word rhymes. This book is great for toddlers and babies. Its fun, it has repitition for building vocabulary.
This is a fun, creative book that provides the reader the ability and opportunity to predict what will happen in the story. The book is constantly asking the question in relation to who ate the cookie dough, and it is asked to many different animal characters within the book. Therefore, it can be used in a lesson with a focus on animals but can also be included in a lesson that addresses honesty (in a milder tone). As you read this to a child you can tie in the importance of answering questions ...more

I think this is a good book for younger children (pre-K- 2nd grade. It lists a lot of animals with the sounds they make, and rhyming is a theme throughout.
This killed at PK storytime. KILLED.
I really loved reading this dialogue driven book outloud. The surprise at the end was such a kid friendly twist.
A rhyming story, short & simple for storytime, to guess who ate all the cookie dough. Kids will have fun imagining who did it.
Totes adorbs and perfect for storytime! ;)
Very funny! My 4 y.o. loves this book!

This is such a fun book! It has a great rhythm that you can take and improvise with - my daughter loves to play with the rhyme, substituting familiar names for the ones in the book. And the illustrations are very cool: stylized and fun, yet clearly based on real animals. One of my pet peeves in children's books is pictures of animals that are based more on animal concepts than actual animals. Good story, good drawing, good design. I like it.
Sandy Brehl
This simple book engages with repetitive phrasing, tightly rhymed verse, a compelling meter, and the direct invitation to the reader to try to help figure things out. Just as with Klassen's I Want My Hat Back, attention to visual detail (in Klassen's case, the eyes, in this case the apron) will yield a degree of success in the guesses.
Easily reread-able and likely to be a good choice for early independence in emerging readers.

This cute picture book is good for students in pre-school and kindergarten. It is about a kangaroo who makes a large batch of cookie dough and then discovers i has all gone missing. She hunts all over the forest and asks all of the animals who ate all of her cookie dough. When none of them have eaten it, she finally discovers that it was baby kangaroo eating it in her pouch! This book has a theme of fun and not jumping to conclusions.
This book was really cute! I did not know what to expect when I picked it up off the shelf, but I ended up liking it. I am using it for my first Supported Reading Lesson Plan, because it is a predictable book and the children should be able to identify the beginning, the middle, and the end of the book pretty easily! It also, starts introducing the children into the genre of mysteries.

Cute book that my kids love. Great for rhyming, sequencing and different animals portrayed. Possiblity for students to add onto the animals that didn't eat the cookie dough. The students could add new ryhmes to these animals as well. Teacher could make cards that have the different animals on them. Students would have to place the cards in order to retell the story.
Cute baby animals being grilled by mama kangaroo on who ate the cookie dough. Little ones will like the repetition. It made me want to make up a batch of cookie dough for snacking.
This is a great rhyming story with lots of repetition for building phonological awareness in ECE level readers. They become involved in the story and try to figure out the ending along with the other characters. The surprise ending can help encourage a discussion about animals and things that make them unique. Such a fun read!
Shelby Usrey
This is a very cute book! It could be considered a predictable book because it gives the children a chance to predict who ate the cookie dough! It has a rhyme throughout the story that has a upbeat feeling to it! I enjoyed reading this book and I think the students in a classroom would enjoy this as well!
Nice surprise ending.

This book has very simple rhyming text. It could fit with zoo-animal theme or baking. There is some opportunity for engaging kids with the repeated phrase "Eeny meeny, miney, moe! Who ate all the cookie dough?" whether through repeat-after-me or discussion about who they think ate the cookie dough.
This book is great. We first heard it at reading time at the library. This wonderful book goes through safari animals in search of the mysterious eater. You're lead to believe it was someone, when it was someone else. I guessed wrong but my two year knew from the first page! Great book!
This book is one that younger children would love. They can try to mimic the sounds that each animal makes, and try to predict which animal did eat all of the cookie dough. It is a fun book to read and to hear even as an adult.
A good choice for a toddler storytime with its repetition, animals to point out, guesses to make, and a fun surprise for the end. The illustrations of the animals are really good, too. The story/book reminds me a bit of the "Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar."
