Horrible Harry and the Stolen Cookie Reviews
Harry wants to help his grandma buy a new stove but his idea of how to earn the money isn't a good choice. Harrys friend Doug tries to talk him out of it. This book is a good book to teach children about what is morally correct. Doug is a good friend and shows Harry that what he wants to do is wrong.
Great book for mid-elementary children. This book teaches a great moral of not stealing. Doug encourages good behavior and helps Harry know what is right.
Kline, S., & Wummer, A. (2013). Horrible Harry and the stolen cookie. New York: Viking.This exciting book is written in the eyes of Harry's friend Doug. In the beginning of the story Doug noticed Harry is very upset about something. He isn't excited about his favorite hot lunch and doesn't show enthusiasm when its time for gym class, which is his favorite part of the day! Later in the day the teacher reminds them that they are going to be voting on the charities they want to donate money to during their annual "Sharing and Caring Tag Sale." His classmates are selling items such as friendship bracelets, warm cookies, and used books. But, Harry has a different plan. He tells Doug what has been bothering him all day and that he wants take the money he makes and give it to a different cause. Doug is not happy about this because that is lie and he is stealing from the other charities. Doug tries multiple different ways to get Harry to change his mind. Although Doug's plan might not be the nicest, it might just make Harry change his mind.

This is the latest story in the Horrible Harry series by Suzy Kline. We've read many of the books in this series and found them to be funny, short, and entertaining. We've skipped around in the series some, but it doesn't seem to matter.I thought that the fact that Harry's family needed money was an interesting aspect of the story. (view spoiler)[And the fact that Harry's family couldn't afford to replace a broken stove while Mary's family got a new one just to match the colors in their new kitchen really helps children to see some of the differences in wealth that can have an impact on children's relationships in school. (hide spoiler)] I also really liked that the children made and/or donated things to help support their causes. The chocolate chip cookie recipe at the back of the book looks yummy.Overall, it was a short, fun read and we really enjoyed reading it together. We will certainly look for more of the books in this series at our local library.
I think the format of Harry worked better in the little stories instead of one drawn out story. Here he does exhibit bad behavior, but he corrects himself and in the end everything works out. Again, there is some genuine friendship and good people in this story. The theme of the book; that of giving to charity; runs throughout and is an important lesson.
Cute and fun to read with my boys. I loved that it taught good morals.
Great series for those easing into chapter books from picture books.
Sophia enjoyed this book!
