Cookie lived in Miami Beach with her mommy and twin sister, Sugar. Sugar and Cookie were the most gorgeous fluffy white Pomeranians. Cookie went for a walk every day and it was part of her daily routine. That particular day Cookie pulled on her leash and dashed to the door. She wanted to do so many things as she went down the stairs that led to the marina but Sugar refused to walk. She lay down and Cookie was getting impatient. Cookie pulled her leash, broke free, and ran with all her might. She ran all the way to the marina where she could look down and see the minnows swimming up to the surface to greet her. There were a lot of minnows that day and Cookie was really happy. She wagged her tail and barked with glee, hoping they would hear her saying hi to them. Suddenly Cookie realized her mommy and Sugar were not there and she was lost. Cookie was scared and she started to cry. She asked the Great White Egret, Mr. Lizard, Mr. Cat, and others whether they had seen her mommy and sister and they said they had not seen them. Would Cookie be able to find her mommy and Sugar?

The Day Cookie Was Lost by Susan Marie Chapman is an adorable story of a Pomeranian who gets lost and is trying to find her mommy and sister. The pictures are wonderful and the book is a real treat for all dog lovers and animal lovers. It is a good book to use for storytelling and read-aloud sessions in classrooms and homes, and children will enjoy the process of following Cookie as she tries to find her mommy and sister, Sugar, and her way back home. Looking at Cookie and Sugar, every reader will be tempted to have Pomeranian dogs like them as their pets.

I loved this delightful story of an impatient dog who in her hurry to go on her walk, gets away from her Mommy and ends up lost. This story was written in the dog’s point of view and shows her emotions clearly and understandably from the first moments of frustration and impatience to the initial feelings of freedom which soon turned to confusion and sadness as she realized she was lost and then ultimately the joy and relief of her being found. This is an excellent way to introduce to children the consequences of their actions in an easy to understand, non-threatening way. The photographs match the storyline perfectly and illustrate the world from Cookie’s point of view. This is a wonderful book for children of all ages and in particularly toddlers through 8 years old. I highly recommend it.
