Big brown rooster is sick of chicken feed, so he along with his friends bravely forge ahead to make the best strawberry shortcake in the whole world! Really cute story bringing the farmyard into the kitchen. The kids loved it!
My preschooler picked this out at the library and I am hooked! The story revolves around Big Brown Rooster, the great-grandson of Little Red Hen. He has become bored with chicken feed and wants some real food. Rooster locates his great-grandmother's cookbook and a few assistants and goes to work. The story quickly becomes silly as the kitchen helpers misunderstand the instructions at every point of the cooking process. Rooster sets them straight, though, and the result is a yummy strawberry shortcake (recipe included). Every spread in the cooking section of the story is accompanied by a sidebar explaining the relevant step of the process. These sidebars cover ingredients, measuring, turning on the oven, etc. The fun story and delightful illustrations will draw children in, but Cook-a-Doodle-Doo is more than just a story. This is a terrific introduction to cooking, and I will be adding it to my homeschool library.
WOW! this book I'll keep all my life! and get more when this one falls apart! really cool! Even has a recipe to follow later on.
Very cute! As soon as we read it, my 5 yr old was ready to make strawberry shortcake!
A cute story of barnyard animals geting together to make a strawberry shortcake dessert.
The recipe is in the back of the book for a parent to make with their child.
