Review:

Elephant and Piggie like to read. Together they share a story about four friends who attempt to share three cookies. They want to make sure each gets equal parts of the cookies. Hippo, in a nervous state, accidently breaks the cookies in half and then half again. Fortunately, for the friends, there are enough equal pieces for all to crunch and munch. All are happy until a friendly cow shows up with 3 glasses of milk. What do you think will happen next?

Author Mo Willems and illustrator Dan Santat have created a hilarious story that will get beginner readers thinking about addition, subtraction and even multiplication. Oversized fun words that share emotion and illustrations with bright cheery colors like blue, green and purple depict the animals in a cartoonish fashion. Parents and teachers can use this as a guide to introduce sharing and mathematics.
