Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This third book in the “cookie” series once again takes words children may or may not know and defines them in ways that make sure listeners taste the sugar inside them. Keeping true to the cookie metaphor throughout, the book explains words like tenderness (“lifting the fresh cookies from the tray with care and gentleness”) and heartbroken (“my heart feels sad and hurt, like a crumbling cookie”). The words here seem more sophisticated than in previous books, but the Dyers’ fabulous artwork, where children and animals mingle in the real world, extend the definitions. Sugar cookie recipe appended. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

Perfect baby gift to start a child's library.

The whole book takes character traits and gives definitions that relate to cookies so that kids can understand what they mean.

I LOVE this book. We have a couple of other Amy Krouse Rosenthal books, but I think as a mom this one is my favorite. My five year old son got this as a birthday gift when he turned 4 and he really loves it too. The whole book takes character traits and gives definitions that relate to cookies so that kids can understand what they mean. For example, one of them goes something like "Trustworthy means if you ask me to watch your cookie until you come back, when you come back I will still be watching your cookie." Other traits are patience, honesty, courage, loyalty...and more. The illustrations are great and the definitions are so wonderful - exactly how you would try to explain them to a young child. I have referred back to this book when I'm reminding my son about these traits. I'll say, "remember in your cookies book how it says courage means...." I Highly recommend this for kids who are around 4-8. Moms will love it even more!

Amy Rosenthal uses cookies to teach readers about the meaning of words that are a little hard for youngsters to grasp, like selfless and considerate. The art work by Jane and Brooke Dyer is just delightful. I bought the whole series for my granddaughter.
