Big Brown Rooster is sick of chicken feed. So along with his friends--Turtle, Iguana, and Potbellied Pig--he sets out to make the most magnificent strawberry shortcake in the whole wide world. But there’s one problem: none of his friends knows how to cook! The team bravely forges ahead, and with Rooster’s help, they learn how to measure flour (not with a ruler) and how to beat an egg (not with a baseball bat). But can they keep Pig from gobbling up all the ingredients? Take an old family recipe, add four funny friends, and mix in some hilarious cooking confusion and you have a picture book treat for children of all ages!

Rooster is tired of chicken feed and enlists the help of Turtle, Iguana and Pig to bake a strawberry shortcake. The team is new to cooking and makes a bunch of mistakes along the way, and students will enjoy either correcting the characters like Rooster has to do or learning more about cooking through the non-fiction sidebars interspersed throughout the story.

Cook-a-doodle-doo is an adorable introduction to following recipes and working together. The characters are endearing as they work together to create a scrumptious treat.

A new favorite for my three-year-old grandson and me. I love the reference to the rooster's genealogy and the helpful can-do-attitude of his friends. The book made it easy for discussion during and after reading about cooking and relationships. When you read this book, you will understand why we had to go straight to the kitchen and bake "something special".

I loved this book. I intend to use it with my first grade class to make strawberry shortcake--using the book's recipe, of course!
