Meet Dan who is supposed to be a fire dog in The Cookie Eating Fire Dog by Lida Sideris. Dan was supposed to pull on his shiny black boots, slip into his bright yellow coat, and put on his red hat whenever the fire bell rang in the fire station. Whenever the fire bell rang, the firefighters jumped onto the fire truck and raced away to the fire. However, Dan jumped onto the fire station couch whenever the fire bell rang, made himself comfortable, and ate cookies. The fire chief was not too happy with Dan's behavior. The next time the fire bell rang, two fire fighters carried Dan over to the fire truck and lifted him on board. When they reached the place, all the fire fighters hurried to fight the fire, but Dan had found a bag of peanut butter cookies. Will Dan change and start helping the fire fighters?

The story is charming and readers will love Dan. The story is all about helping others and readers will wonder if Dan can change and start helping others. The illustrations breathe life into the story, scenes, and characters, and give a good pace and movement. It is a good story to make children understand the importance of helping others and can be used in classrooms and homes for read aloud and story telling sessions. The safety tips at the end of the book for children and parents are very useful. Parents and children can try out the recipe at the end of the book during the weekend so that they can enjoy a fun activity session together in the kitchen.
