I've been crying out, "We need more Elephant-and-Piggie-ish books!"

I've been crying out loudly.

Someone has heard my cries.

Someone has written this book.

Thank you, Dan Santat and Mo Willems.

Four animal friends are faced with a big problem when they discover there are only three chocolate chip cookies for the four of them. They struggle to find a way to split the cookies evenly amongst them.

This is a funny book that young children are sure to enjoy. The characters are over the top in

their exaggerations, but this is to comic perfection. Within all this humor are some quick mathematics lessons about counting and dividing equally.

As an Elephant and Piggie reader, the main story is sandwiched between an introduction and a conclusion by those two beloved characters talking about the story they're about to/just read. Savvy readers will also spot a cameo by the Pigeon.

A super cute picture book about four friends who must share three cookies equally. A fun story that teaches math AND sharing skills.

A little bit math, a little bit learning to share, mostly about a hippo that breaks things when it gets nervous. Can the animals find a way to equally share the cookies?
