The simple premise of this book does nothing to downplay its heart. A young bear mistakes a wood burning furnace for a dragon. In his dream, the dragon comes alive and eats all of the milk and cookies. When the bear wakes up, his family is there to comfort him and explain what he thought he saw.

And they are, of course, willing to share some milk and cookies. The art is delightful, and kids will love sharing their dreams and questions (and cookies, no doubt).

that the dragon comes up stairs and eats all the cookies. When he wakes up scared his dad takes him down stairs to show his son that what he saw was just a wood stove. They go upstairs to find everyone awake and the story ends with everyone eating cookies and drinking milk. I think this is a good book for children to read when they are around the ages that they begin to spend the night at friends houses.

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.

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!
