Baby bear sees a fire breathing dragon at his grandparents and nothing but milk and cookies will calm him. Cute way to explain ordinary things to a child with an imagination. Hurray for Grandpap! ( )

I liked this book for two reasons. First, the book had a staggered flow. Baby Bear saw Grandpa downstairs with what he thought to be a dragon, and later that night he had a dream about it. One page reads, "That night, Baby Bear dreamed that the cellar door opened, and the dragon..." This staggered flow allows the reader to use their imagination and guess what happens next before they flip the page. Second, the illustrations enhance the text. For example, when the dragon told Baby Bear that he was hungry in the dialogue, the illustration also shows the dragon breathing fire with "I'm hungry!" written inside of it. This helps the reader identify who is saying that they are hungry along with the actual text. Baby Bear gives the dragon milk and cookies and he eats them all. Baby Bear then wakes up crying and is comforted by Papa Bear who shows him that the "dragon" he saw in the cellar was really just a wood stove. They go back upstairs and enjoy some milk and cookies with their whole family. The message of the story is that sometimes your fears are really just your imagination playing tricks on you. ( )

Relatable, kid-friendly story about imagination triggered by fear. ( )

Review: Milk and Cookies teaches students that it is okay to have fears and the best way to deal with those fears are to talk about them. When a child is scared of something, they do not always know how to handle their fear. Thus, this book is showing young children that if they tell an adult what they are scared of, an adult can help them conquer their fear. I believe this book would be great to use in a classroom because it helps children realize that everyone has a fear and that it is okay to be scared of something. I think that using a realistic object, like a wood stove, and turning it into a dragon could be very relatable to children who are young and are very imaginative. This also shows young children that they can talk to a trusted adult and get help for something they are having a problem with.

Summary: Milk and Cookies is about a baby bear who believes that there is a dragon living in his grandparents basement. When Baby Bear falls asleep that night, he dreams of a dragon coming up from the basement and asking him for milk and cookies. Baby bear gave the dragon milk and cookies and is upset when the dragon does not save him any. Baby bear then wakes up from his dream crying, which in return wakes his parents up as well. After Baby Bear tells them his dream, Papa Bear brings him into the basement to show him that no dragon exists. They then return upstairs to have milk and cookies with everyone. ( )
