Who Put the Cookies in the Cookie Jar?
Illustrated by Julie Paschkis.
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.
"Shannon and Paschkis provide a charming multicultural answer to the title question, creating in the process a confection that, while it may be most appreciated by socially conscious adults, will tempt young appetites as well." -- Kirkus Reviews
"An appealing way to introduce the globalization of our food sources for the very young." -- School Library Journal "This simple package provides a thought-provoking and positive global concept of product development that can be explored on a variety of levels. A recipe for sugar cookies is included at the end." -- The Horn Book
"Paschkis’s…mural-like spreads, with their warm colors and characters who exemplify a rock-solid work ethic and optimistic outlook, bring to mind a WPA aesthetic, with a little Lois Lenski and Virginia Lee Burton for good measure." -- Publishers Weekly
"A hand dives into a cookie jar to pull out a treat. But how many hands were needed to put the cookie there in the first place? With a text as simple as the pictures are stylized, this is a charming look at the process." -- Booklist
