    1. Milk and Cookies is about a baby bear who is staying with his grandma and grandpa bear for the night and thinks that he sees grandpa bear feeding a dragon in the basement. He has a nightmare that the dragon comes upstairs and tells him that he's hungry, so baby bear goes to the kitchen to get him some milk and cookies. The dragon eats all the cookies and drinks all the milk and baby bear wakes up crying because the dragon didn't leave any for him. Papa bear then takes baby bear down into the bas [...]

    2. A flawless masterpiece. This book has it all: edge of your seat suspense, pulse pounding drama, a tragic loss, a twist you won't see coming, and a heartwarming ending.This book should be required reading for everyone. In fact, I just decided on behalf of the human race that it is required reading for everyone. If you disagree with my decision, then feel free to contact me; I'll gladly stop melting down cars with my heat vision to discuss why you are wrong.On a completely unrelated note, I wonder [...]

    3. This book helped me through some of my fears. It is about this bear that thinks there is a dragon in his grandparent's basement. He dreamed of it eating his milk and cookies. His father woke him up and the little bear told his father of his dream. They went downstairs to see if there was a dragon and it turned out to be a wood stove with flames coming out. So, at the end his whole family ate the milk and cookies. For me, this book helped me through fears of people under my bed.

    4. This book has been one of my favorites for a long time! I think all little kids can relate to when the little bear imagines the furnace for something scaryevery child has imagined something to be what it really wasn't! It would be a great book for younger students!

    5. I love this bookwhen i was littler, i read it all the time, and now, even though i dont read it as much, whenever i see it i usually pick it up and read it hehe :P

    6. 1. Awards the book has received (if any): No awards 2. Appropriate grade level(s): K-23. Original 3-line summary: Baby Bear is frightened by a noise that he hears outside his grandparent’s house, and when he peeks outside he sees a dragon. When Baby Bear goes to sleep that night he has a nightmare about the dragon eating all of his milk and cookies. His father helps him to realize that there was no dragon outside, and his milk and cookies are safe. 4. Original 3-line review: This book is great [...]

    7. My 2-year-old loves this book because of the dragon and thinks it's so funny that the dragon ate the flowers. This is a classic. I grew up with this book. So cool to see my son liking it as well.

    8. Baby bear sees a fire breathing dragon at his grandparents and nothing but milk and cookies will calm him. Cute way to explain ordinary things to a child with an imagination. Hurray for Grandpap!

    9. How have I not reviewed this book before???? When my now 6-yr-old was little he loved this book. We checked it out from the library over and over again. I recently got it "to keep and never give back" and I've read it over 100 times and I'm not joking. Both the 3 and 6-yr-old ask for it again and again and again.The pictures are simple and so is the text. A new reader could read it fairly easily. The story is a bit scary, but the kind of scary little kids like to see resolved because it reaffirm [...]

    10. Baby Bear hears something in the middle of the night and thinks he sees Grandpa feeding a dragon in the basement. He dreams about the dragon and tells his parents about the dream and the dragon in the basement, but then his father shows him what is really in the basement.I had a very healthy imagination as a child (ok, I still do). Which is not always a good thing. Especially not in strange houses at night. So I totally identify with Baby Bear, I probably would have thought it was a dragon too a [...]

    11. "Milk and Cookies" is a good book to teach children about their imagination and seeing scary things, that aren't even there. I liked how the stove really did look like a dragon's mouth and how even though the little bear child was scared of the dragon, he still gave the dragon milk and cookies, which the dragon didn't share, which shows children that they do need to share. I thought the illustrations were generic and basic, but the book certainly shows children that there is nothing to be scared [...]

    12. a little bear and his parents are spending the night at grandma and grandpa's and baby bear thinks there is a dragon in the cellar. Everyone keeps offering milk and cookies to calm one another down. Preschool and up for length and complexity.

    13. Milk and Cookies is a story of how fear can trigger the imagination. A little bear is becomes frightened when he sees a dragon in his house, but what really happens is the bear was seeing a furnace and his fear got the best of him. This would be a good book to read to Kindergarteners to teach them when to use imagination and when to be brave. I really liked this book because it is a little scary for the children, but they will laugh at the end.

    14. This was another of my favourites as a kid. Mostly I think I liked the idea of milk and cookies, but either way, I loved it. Simple but effective illustrations and text. Good for reading aloud, as well as for reading to your self, as I did many times. And then subsequently went and snatched some cookies from the cupboard.

    15. This was one of my favorite books when I was younger! It kind of reminds me of Kevin being afraid of the space heater in Home Aloned I was also afraid of our space heater growing up, so I can very much sympathize with poor Baby Bear. This book would be great for a storytime about family, about milk and cookies, about make believe, etc versatile.

    16. I remember reading this book with my mom when I was really little. Now, I get to share it with my own daughter. My favorite part is the ending line of the book. I even remember how I exclaimed it when I was little, and I do the same thing now with my daughter. It's awesome. :-)

    17. I love this book and have since childhood. When I was a child I was afraid of my grandparents furnace. This book helped me face my fears and realize that the furnace isn't a monster. And hey grandparents always have milk and cookies on that bright orange counter.

    18. This was one of my absolute favorites as a child, so I read it to my Tuesday storytime group this week, and they loved it! It's always so special when I can share one of my favorites from my childhood with preschoolers now.

    19. Read with granddaughter-- good for helping kids see that what sometimes what we perceive due to overactive imaginations or fears may not be reality.

    20. This was one of the books that played a huge role in my early reading. I wish I still had it, but my mom got rid of it.

    21. The kids love this simple story about Little Bear's fear of a dragon that turns out to be his grandpa's wood-burning stove.
