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

Format: Hardcover
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!

Sugar Cookies is a perfect Valentine's Day book giving meaning to words like tenderness, bliss, forgive, and considerate. The charming illustrations by a mother -daughter duo make this picture book oh-so scrumptious.

Format: Hardcover
A mother holds her arms out as her young boy runs toward her. A mother hen stretches out her wings and her chicks rush in her direction. Endearment is the word for it. "Come here, my sugar, my cookie, my sweet little morsel." A boxer pup licks the side of a bowl and a little girl shares the leftover cookie dough with him as she licks her little fingers clean. YUM! They were being considerate when they shared. A little cook worked diligently to make cookies for her horse. Her actions were heartfelt as she nestled up to her horse with her offering. The added sprinkles gave it just the right touch.

The cookies were very sad looking and an orange kitty cat cuddled up with a sad looking curly haired boy to give him a hug. He was compassionate toward the boy. Valentine's heart cookies are meant to be decorated. One little girl decorated while another leaned over her shoulder because "Admire means, I really look up to you and the way you are with your cookies. You remind me of what is good and possible in this world." There are many other recipes for love in this book including the ingredients, forgive, supportive, tenderness, adore, expansive love, constructive, unconditionally, unrequited, requited, connected, heartbroken, true love, selfless, bliss, cherish, and protect.

This charming book with its delightful recipes for love will warm the reader's heart. The author and illustrator have captured the essence of love and have imparted it to all the little cookies of the world. Each and every message was positive and affirming. The art work was very appealing with its many nostalgic touches, something that will have especial appeal to parents and grandparents. In the back of the book is a recipe for Sugar Cookies, a recipe that a parent can share with a child. This is one of those totally heartwarming books a parent or grandparent can share with the special little cookie in their life!

Format: Hardcover
Through beautiful illustrations and well-chosen definitions featuring all aspects of the sugar cookie, SUGAR COOKIES: SWEET LITTLE LESSONS ON LOVE tells the story of human relationships using sugar cookies as a means to illustrate feelings. Vocabulary words such as compassion, forgive and requited become easily understandable. Illustrations feature adorable animals, children and family scenes, particularly but not exclusively kitchen baking and eating scenes. SUGAR COOKIES: SWEET LITTLE LESSONS ON LOVE combines educational purpose with values of concepts as compassion, supportive love and unconditional love with the sheer fun of activity and feelings. The book closes with a recipe for sugar cookies which could be used as a fun post-reading activity for families, and supervised children's group activities. SUGAR COOKIES: SWEET LITTLE LESSONS ON LOVE teaches values suitable for a wide variety of church groups. The underlying message is not keyed to any specific religion or denomination, but rather but rather touches on universal values. For that reason, this book would be an excellent resource for children's groups such as schools and libraries in which participants come from a variety of religious backgrounds.

SUGAR COOKIES: SWEET LITTLE LESSONS ON LOVE would be an excellent resource for parents or grandparents to talk with their children about the relationship between parent and child or as a gift for birthdays, Valentine's Day, other special occasions or as a cheer-up gift. SUGAR COOKIES: SWEET LITTLE LESSONS ON LOVE would also make an excellent choice for divorced, widowed or other single parents to share with children as a way of to reaffirm parental love.

A follow-up to `Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons', Amy Krouse Rosenthal again uses cookies as metaphor. This time around cookies are used to illustrate the qualities of love. Each page begins with a bold/capitalized word (heartfelt, compassionate, supportive, admire) that describes an aspect of love. The lead in word then is defined by linking it creatively to love. The illustrations combine animals and people to bring a warm, sweet, and tender feeling to the feel of the book. Great to use for writing activities that use a lead word to frame the message of each page. Great for 2nd grade on up, will need discussion to fully bring understanding to each term.

Sequel to Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons.
