3. Who Took The Cookie From The Cookie Jar? by David A. Carter






Summary:



Lift the flaps and up pop a mouse, a kitty, a puppy, and others who bring to life this popular preschool rhyme. Created by David Carter, bestselling author, illustrator, and paper engineer.

Who Took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?
Lift the cookie jar flap and out pops a mouse. "Who, me?" he says. "Couldn't be."

This familiar play song has a special twist: ingenious pop-ups and lift-up flaps by paper-engineer extraordinaire David Carter. Children will love opening each cookie jar to discover a dog, a cat, an owl, and others. A pop-up surprise in the end reveals that they all took the cookies! And as an extra fun activity, children are invited to go back and find which cookie each animal took.

1. Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar? by George Shannon, Julie Paschkis (Illustrations)






Summary:



It’s easy to take a cookie out of the cookie jar: just reach in. But how does it get in there in the first place? It’s more complicated than you might think. Someone has to milk the cow, grow the wheat, harvest the sugar cane—everyone has a special job to do to make that cookie possible.

George Shannon and Julie Paschkis take us on a delicious cookie journey, showing how many hands work together so that one hand can take the cookie out—and so that you can take a huge yummy bite!
