Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar, with George Shannon and Julie Paschkis

Island Treasure, children's author, and librarian George Shannon will be joined by illustrator Julie Paschkis to launch George's new book Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar?

 

It's easy to take a cookie out of the cookie jar: just reach in. But how does it get in there in the first place? It's more complicated than you might think. Someone has to milk the cow, grow the wheat, harvest the sugar cane--everyone has a special job to do to make that cookie possible.

George Shannon and Julie Paschkis take us on a delicious cookie journey, showing how many hands work together so that one hand can take the cookie out--and so that you can take a huge yummy bite! 

Shannon and Paschkis provide a charming multicultural answer to the title question, creating in the process a confection that ... will tempt young appetites as well." Kirkus Reviews

Picking a favorite cookie to eat is too hard!
