This is a story about sharing cookies with an ever-growing group of children. Each time the doorbell rings, the children are forced to divide the cookies between all the students. This book uses a small amount of division in the text to explain the diminishing amount of cookies per child with the arrival of new guests. The bright and colorful full-bleed illustrations bring the story to life and invite the reader to join the cookie sharing party. The end pages are a plain brown that could also represent the chocolate chip cookies in a subtle fashion. This story is less math oriented than other math stories, but would be appropriate for division introduction. A very simple read that could be used with younger and older children.
