I think this was one of the first books I read when I was a baby. I love when Cookie Monster eats all those cookies! What a naughty monster!

Rereading this was like being transported back to my own childhood. I don't know why this specific Sesame Street story stands out in my memory, but the string tied around Burt's finger is something I distinctly remember from this book. I love that Cookie Monster makes a messy appearance and that there's so much content in this book besides the story; you can reread it hundreds of times with kids and interact with it in many different ways. ...more

This was my favorite Sesame Street book as a kid. I was very excited to find it at a used-book store for $2 a few years ago.
Identifying all the stuff at the grocery store was always a lot of fun. Cookie Monster's cookies always looked really yummy too, even if I had no idea what the heck a macaroon was as a five-year-old. (I'll admit it: I don't think I knew what a macaroon was until I was 20.) I did always feel bad for the grocery store people who had to clean up after Cookie Monster's mess.

This is a good word book to read aloud to a child, although it was not a favorite with my children. Bert forgets the oatmeal in this book, which teaches the importance of making a list before going grocery shopping and also names many common items found at a supermarket for your child to learn. This book is cute and colorful and Bert and Ernie are as quirky as ever!

I like this book a lot. Ok, so it's a little overly wordy. OK, so Cookie Monster goes a little crazy chomping down on the various foods. It's still a rock-solid Sesame Street gotta love those guys Bert and Ernie book. ...more

I like sesame street characters and this word book can help children identify some grocery store items. For children who need a challenging reading book this is the one. It is funny too how Ernie always get Bert in one way or the other they still forgot the oatmeal.

This was one of my favorite books as a child. Whenever I was in the doctors office with my mom I always read this book. It was a great comfort to me. I will always love it.
