I truly enjoyed this book. The plot of the story could have not been any more fun! I would guess that this book is for the lower reading levels by its word usage and vocabulary it contained. The bigger picture is for the benefit of learning new words in a repetitive way. The sentences were repetitive in this way: “On Tuesday, Cookie did this and there were some type of mess everywhere!” Cookie fell in the toilet, knocked a plant over and spread dirt everywhere. The illustrations were simple but usual in describing the scene. The color usage was more in pastel colors. I could see they used these so the pictures would not be too overbearing to the readers. The story was told in third person, which is very popular in children’s books. Children are used to being told a story in this way, so it will be easily understood. ( )

This was a realistic fiction book that focuses on the mischief a cat named Cookie. This would work well for younger kids, as it introduces the concept of patterns, particularly with the use of weeks. It would be best for 1st or 2nd grade. This book starts off on Monday, and describes what the cat does, and then the result of that mischievous action. It moves throughout the week, and when the book comes to Sunday, the cat decides to rest. ( )

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Point of View: The story is told from a third person perspective. Cookie is the main character of the story and his actions are told by the narrator/author of the story.

Review: Cookie is a young cat who keeps getting into messes. This book is a good example of realistic fiction because the messes Cookie the cat gets into could indeed happen to a cat. It is also slightly informational throughout the book; it can be beneficial for students learning the days of the week.

Media: watercolors and colored pencils ( )

An exciting story about a cat named Cookie and what she gets into each day of the week. Good for reviewing the days of the week with young learners.
