Jake's Review: Mom, I really like the pictures in this one. Each time I read it I find new things in the picture that I didn't notice before. Can we buy some of the artists paintings, they are much better than those animal pictures you have all over the house. It kinda bugs me when he Mr Munsch uses all those sound effect words like scritch-scritch and Glick-Glick in his books. Although, I think I would like to hear him read it out loud. I like the practical joke he plays on everyone, it really ...more

This is a simple fun story. The pictures and even the "noises" that are written into the story are part of what makes it so much fun for young children. It even has a recipe for play clay in the book.

MMM, Cookies is written by Robert Munsch. The book is about a little boy who takes red play clay and molds it into a cookie form and adds some “extras” on top. He gives this “cookie” to his mother and father and they take a big bite. Of course the “cookie” is terrible because it is made of clay. The parents call his teacher to inform her of his activities and she plays the same trick on him. After the prank the class makes real cookies. The book includes a real recipe that they “use” to make the ...more

Here's a fantastic Munsch book. It maintains the level of humor that most of his books have. It also is something that nearly every child can identify with ... making 'food' out of that super-salty play clay and trying to get someone to eat it. In this book, the youth succeeds in trickng hs parents into taking a bite of the horrid clay. It back-fires when they trick him in return to teach him a lesson.

But the lesson goes one step further, but then having the child help make a real cookie. A gian
Christopher makes play clay cookies and tries to give it to his mother and father. They both eat it and immediately go to the bathroom and wash their mouth out. When he gets to school, his teacher plays the same prank on him. He washes his mouth out. In the end, the class makes a huge cookie. He brings his home for his parents to eat.

This story is fun for children and even includes the recipe used to make "play clay" (play dough).

This is not one of my favorite Robert Munsch books, but it is fu

This mischievous book by Robert Munsch is about a young boy who decides to play a trick on his parents. He makes them each a play clay cookie and gives it to them separately telling them it is from the other. When his parents tell his teacher about his scheming she knows just what to do. She makes her own play clay cookie and gives him a taste of his own medicine before the entire classes makes some real cookies. Illustrated in ink and watercolor, this book brings out the rebellious side in any ...more

This book shows the lesson of karma and how when you do wrong to others they will do wrong to you. Its funny because the boy gets his parents teacher and friends to eat the play-dough cookie and thinks it is very funny. In the end they trick Christopher into eating the "cookie" and he now understands what he did to others and that things come around. Good lesson for younger kids and older kids to learn and a silly book to do it with.

This is another Great Robert Munsch book, with bright funny illustrations.

The children in my class just love to help read out the action sounds as we go through the story. It gets us all giggling. Christopher decides to make some cookies out of play clay, he hands one to his Mother telling her his father made it, and she takes a bite out of it and runs to wash her mouth. It would seem Christopher enjoys playing these pranks until his parents warn his Teacher at school.

I love this book. In true Munsch fashion, the reactions of the parents (and eventually kid) eating play clay cookies are incredibly over the top and hysterical. They gag, they scream, they brush their teeth a zillion times. And of course Christopher learns his lesson because, as we all know, turnabout is fair play.

There's no real moral to this book, it's just a bit of fun.

This is a good book by Munsch. It has repetitive text, and cute illustrations.

It is also the perfect stage setter for teaching children to make playdough from scratch (recipe included!). Once the playdough has been made, it is fun to make cookies following the boy's directions. Following up with making real cookies makes for a multi-sensory approach to this book!
This is a cute book about what to do with a practical joker who isn't malicious but still won't stop with the same prank. Plus it has Munsch's usual style of using many onomatopoeias, which makes reading it aloud super fun

Teaching the consequences of pulling practical jokes on everyone else by the joker getting a [harmless] taste of his own medicine... or play-dough cookie, as it may be. A good book for young readers with great illustrations and a helpful moral at the end!

In classic Munsch fashion, the reader is delighted by a hilarious storyline infused with a chant-along chorus that inspires laughter and involvement from everyone. A nice, quick read that left me giggling. I mean my kids. ;)
Jessica Vandrovec
This is a great book to use in a writer's workshop mini lesson to get kids thinking about descriptive words and words that sound like a sound. It also shows how you can write words on a page to show meaning. Just another great story from Robert Munsch!

What a great story about a smart, imaginative boy who essentially tricks his family into believing that his Play-Doh creations are yummy cookies! The illustrations are beautifully constructed and offer so much to look at. (The dog's expressions are priceless!)

Mmmm, Cookies! was another great story written by Robert Munsch. All of his books took up a rather large part of my childhood. I remember reading many of them at school, and checking them out of the library.

He makes cookies out of clay for his parents then his parents calls his school and tell the techer to make a cookie for him
Liz Todd
Great book for predicting what will happen next. Very, very funny! Also, a great illustration of the importance of telling the truth--mom and dad did not believe Christopher after he tricked them.

A book about cookies and making cookies, always a winner with a toddler (18 months) obsessed with cooking!

Pb 11? I really didn't like this book very much. Especially compared to other books we've read this was mediocre and rather blah.I suppose kids will like it because of repetition.

I read this book to my daycare kids and I thought it was well done. It was funny and easy for the kids to read back to me.

This one almost gave me a craving for a big cookie. Not recommended to those who are pregnant with morning sickness or who have strange cravings (like clay).

There's nothing funnier than tricking the adults in your life... Who can resist a good, giant cookie? My clients think it's hilarious that an adult would fall for this trick :)
My 3-year-old loooooves this book! I personally find it kind of annoying, and so does my husband, but she loves it and we've read it many, many, many times. = )

Looks like a fun one to read aloud. Funny, the copy I got from Toledo looks like an actual bite was taken out of the last page...
