Have you ever thought of viewing life from the cookie’s point of view? Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, along with other cookies, and demands to be frosted first. Throughout the story, Cookiesaurus Rex has other demands, which are written in dialogue text with the hand that is frosting him. Cookiesuarus is self-centered and things do not go as he has planned. The other frosted cookies watch as Cookiesaurus gets frosted and makes his demands. Told from Cookiesaurus’s point of view, this book adds imagination to frosting cookies.

Verdict: Children will find themselves wondering how Cookiesaurus will be frosted next and what his reaction will be. This colorful book will make a great addition to any children’s library. If you are making cookies with children, this is a fun book to read first. Children can imagine what their cookie is thinking while they are frosting it.
