This book is adorable. It teaches life lessons such as respect, compassionate, optimistic, etc. Mature words are defined for preschoolers in a fun memorable way. The illustrations are great too. Would recommend this to anyone. A great read that doesn't get old

This book is great for teaching children the meaning of words like 'loyalty', 'regret', 'polite', etc. which are hard to describe, except when you're talking about cookies! Cookies are how this book gets those tough points across. The illustrations are soft and beautiful. It's our new favorite to read and my new favorite to give! All ages will love this as a read-aloud.

Genre: Informational Review: This story is very informational! It is a fantastic book to explain to young children, and even reiterate the information to older elementary, about life lessons we all need to know, and be reminded of. It defines words such as fair, unfair, cooperate, patient, respect, pessimistic, optimistic... just to name a few of them! It defines each of these words within the realm of baking cookies, so what it means to be fair, how to cooperate, and how to be patient while making cookies. Very informational and easy definitions/examples to big words to help students understand. Media: watercolor, paints

I really liked this book because it does have good little lessons for kids to learn about such as being fair and cooperating with others. I would read this book to my class for sure! Loved it!

Cookies provide examples of how to act with friends.

The point of this book is simple: We have absurdly adorable kids and anthropomorphic animals running around demonstrating the meaning of vocabulary, with a helpful dose of character as well, using cookies as props.I find the human-sized animals in clothes a bit much, but I like the point of this book and the execution. Every word is described (often with dialog instead of a traditional definition) with cookies as the example. For instance, Content is "Sitting on the steps, just you, me, and a couple of cookies" and Modest is "You don't go running around telling people you make the best cookies, even though you know it's true".This book is a must in every early elementary classroom, and just about every home as well.

This book does goes through many different qualities and behaviors that are important for children to learn. Every lesson is related to cookies in some way which makes it fun and easy to learn and I love cookies! It is also a good vocabulary lesson for children. The new word is displayed clearly with a sentence that defines it and relates it to cookies. My favorite it "trustworthy" which explains that if someone leaves a cookie with you, you should still have it when they come back for it.The paintings reflect the mood of the word and definition and involve animals that are often in children's books. It brings an element of fun.

"MODEST means you don't run around telling everyone you make the best cookies, even if you know it to be true." Um, WHAT? No, really, from the brilliant woman who brought us Little Pea, we now have definitions of words like "envy," "trustworthy," and "content" couched in terms we all can understand -- cookies. Reading the first couple pages, I thought, "Oh, no," but the definitions get wittier and wittier and the illustrations definitely grew on me. I am making everyone in the library read this book right now.

I purchased this book as a gift for my son's teacher as well as one for my son. My son and I read it together and what great little life lessons it has! The lessons are in terms that kids can actually understand. This is great to read and re-read and is great for any age! I would highly recommend this book for a gift or just to have at home!!!

How clever to be able to teach children character trait words and life's lessons in a fun and yummy way. It was clever and beautifully illustrated. I gave Cookies and the Christmas Cookies edition to all of my grandchildren's teachers. Of course, I have a set for myself as well!
