This classic story, which helps young children visualize the concept of division through the sharing of cookies with a crowd, is always enjoyed by emerging readers for its simple and repetitive text. Here, with Suzanne Toren's no-nonsense narration, we hear those patterns and repetitions even more clearly. Toren also does an incredible job with the characters of the children, who help to express the disappointment, then annoyance, that each child feels as more kids arrive, dividing the cookies even further. Having the doorbell for the page-turning signal adds a realistic touch. A good choice for children learning to read. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
