Recommends it for: animal and rhyme requests
Recommended to June by: Lizzie and Ruth
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 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."

6/22/16 & 6/23/16 Overall the book went well. It worked to have it as the last, since the repetitiveness slightly calmed the at the edge of their limit toddler crowd. And they all loved the little joey being the guilty party (wh

Who Ate All the Cookie Dough is a good book for young readers. It lets the readers open up their imagination and follow along with the kangaroo as she tries to find out who ate all her cookie dough. This would be a good book for young readers because it would be fun for them since the different animal characters come to life and interact with each other. Also, it is an easy read so it would also be beneficial for beginners.

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.

Written by Karen Beaumont, with whimsical illustrations by Eugene Yelchin, "Who Ate All the Cookie Dough" is an amazing read for early readers. Throughout the books, readers are able to follow along as the kangaroo goes around, investigating who ate all the cookie dough. This book will allow students to see how the animals interact with one another, and the verbal repetition allows the young readers to follow along.
This picture book opens children up to the mystery genre. The young kangaroo has

"Who Ate All the Cookie Dough?" is a fun picture book for young readers. It takes them on a journey of figuring out who ate the cookie dough. Every page has a new animal that is questioned and makes the reader engaged. At the end it goes back to the baby kangaroo who ate the cookie dough and provides a little comedy to the ending.

I personally thought this story was a great mystery book for very young readers. It is something that children as young as a toddler can enjoy. It makes the reader get

It is a rhyming book with a fun chant and rhythm - make sure to pause after "do your know" before saying who ate all the cookie dough? Teach it to the children so they can read along. You could have half the class say "Do you Know- who ate all the cookie dough" and the other half of the class do "it wasn't me, maybe (fill in the blank), let's go see.
The book promotes vocabulary and phonological awareness. Many animal names are introduced, including cheetah, zebra and llama. There is a surprise e

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.
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
