Starred Review.

Cookies provide the vehicle for Rosenthal's (Little Pea) deliciously charming collection of defined and illustrated vocabulary words that serve as gentle guides to etiquette.

Dyer's (Time for Bed) scenes of old-fashioned kitchens and balmy outdoor picnics create a feeling of nostalgia, while the cast of multi-ethnic children and their assorted animal friends provides a balancing contemporary feel.

Vocabulary words appear, one or two per page, in bold capital letters; definitions follow in lower case, and each term warrants its own illustrations. Cooperate means, How about you add the chips while I stir?, the book begins. The accompanying full-page watercolor, on the opposite page, features a curly-topped redhead stirring batter, while the bunny and dog at either side add chocolate chips (all three sport white aprons). Words such as Patient, Proud, Modest and Respect are defined in straightforward, cookie-related terms that children of all ages will comprehend.

For example, Trustworthy means, If you ask me to hold your cookie until you come back, when you come back, I will still be holding your cookie. Three vertical panels illustrate a horse entrusting his cookie to an Asian girl, putting on his coat and leaving; the next full-page painting shows the girl still stoically resisting temptation when the horse returns.

Dyer's art finely complements the simple yet profound wisdom that flows throughout Rosenthal's inspired text. This story is likely to have a multi-generational appeal. All ages.

Why Our Experts Love It

We love this book!

The Cookies book is the perfect fun way to teach your little one about manners and how to act properly.

We also LOVE it because it helps your children learn new vocabulary throughout the book with illustrations to help teach children the meaning of each word.
  • Reading with your child is a great way to spend quality time.  Reading is an important activity to foster language skills and help your child learn new information.  Long before a child can speak, an infant is learning the melodies and sounds of language. They are learning to understand words and pair pictures of objects with the name of the object.  In addition to language skills, reading with your child helps improve their attention and builds curiosity.  We want children of all ages to hear ‘adult, complex sentences’ so alternate reading a book as you typically would (reading all the written words) with the tips described below. 
  • Infants – 2 year olds: point to the pictures and emphasize the name of each picture (one word at a time).  Your intonation and melody plays an important role in your child’s attention to the book at this age.
  • 2-3 year olds – read the story as written but ask questions along the way to ensure that your child understands what is happening in the story.  This also allows them to be active “readers”
  • 3-4 year olds – ask your child to tell you about the pictures/predict the story first.  Then read the words on the page. This is a great way to help foster their story-telling abilities.
  • 4-5 year olds – at this age children begin to gain interest in the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make.  Point to some of the words as you read to support this interest.  At the end of a book, you and your child can make up a different ending OR try and add to the story.
  • 5-6 year olds – Your child will begin to read at this age, generally by memorization of sight words.  Keep a running list of the words that your child successfully recognizes.  They will feel great pride as the list grows longer and longer.
