Who Let The Cookies Out? (Grandma's Cookies Stories Book 1) by Mrs. D. is a delicious story where readers meet Grandma who wanted to make holiday cookies to surprise her grandson's pre-K class and make his classmates happy. She made the first batch of butter cookies and she placed them on a plate to cool and went on with her next batch. Grandma was pleased with her first batch and decided to use the same ingredients. She added a vanilla liquid to the dough and that made the cookies smell really good. She kept them next to the butter cookies, but the vanilla cookies thought they were better than the butter ones. The third batch of cookies had a little hole so that they could put a string through it and use it as a decoration for their Christmas tree. Grandma was pleased with her third batch and she added some crumbled mint chips to the fourth batch. The cookies came out green and they thought they were the best looking cookies in the world. Each batch thought they were the best, and Grandma went on to make glazed cookies for the fifth batch. What happens when Grandma folds a handful of nuts into her dough?

The story is a fun read and the nutty behavior of the nut cookies will bring a smile to the faces of young readers. The illustrations by Chanoa are as adorable as the batches of cookies and give life to the story and its characters, making them tangible to readers. The recipe to make cookies can be tried out at home with the help of parents. The underlying message of the story is relevant and relatable. It will make young readers realize how a few nuts can spoil the batch, though the rest of the ingredients used are the same. It is a good storybook for bedtime storytelling and can be used in classrooms for reading aloud and storytelling sessions.
