Cooking With The Grinch by Tish Rabe

What Are Grinch and Cindy-Lou Up To?

The Grinch hears bells ringing and the Whos singing as he heads to town to do some cooking with Cindy-Lou Who.
"He likes to mix.
She likes to stir.
She cooks with him.
He cooks with her."
But when Max, the dog, happens by he is quickly shooed out the door. Finally, the treats are cooked and on a plate, but what have Grinch and Cindy-Lou whipped up?

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most: Though the story doesn't have many words and there is lots of repetition, Tish Rabe and Tom Brannon manages to present a fun story that kids will enjoy.
