Wee Reads: Duckling Gets a Cookie!? By Mo Willems

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?Duckling Gets a Cookie!? By Mo Willems


Much to the chagrin of Pigeon, little Duckling uses very polite manners to request a cookie, and actually gets one. Filled with righteous fury, Pigeon loses his temper and complains bitterly about this terrible state of affairs. However, things aren't what they seem, and Duckling has a secret plan! Part of the bestselling Pigeon series by genius children's book author and illustrator Mo Willems

Do you like this book?
Yeah because I like ducks and cookies! 

What's your favorite part of the book?
The last part where he gave the pigeon the cookie! But he gave the pigeon the cookie because he doesn't like the nuts! That's funny!

What do you think of the cover?
I like it with the words and the duck and the pigeon and the cookie!

Do you want me to read it again?
Yeah, another time.

Of course, this is a Mo Willems book. So it's amazing. 

This is a book about a duckling who gets a cookie just for asking. Well, of course, the pigeon gets mad he can't have a cookie and doesn't understand why he can't get a cookie. He throws a huge fit.

Duckling is nice and gives him the cookie. But he only gives it to him because it has nuts and he doesn't like nuts.

Anyway, the book is really cute and funny and well done. Because Mo Willems.
