Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—Who wants chocolate "all-chip-in" cookies? This book uses sweet confections to explore creative ways to approach a challenge, think of others, and work hard. A brief illustrated glossary serves up a batch of essential life lessons through the collaborative activity of making cookies. The words themselves aren't always simple—e.g., "prompt," "organized," "prepared," "compromise," "empathy," "integrity"—but the explanations hit close to the heart and simplify the definition for younger readers. "CONTRIBUTE means you don't just sit back while everyone else makes the cookies; each of us is doing our part and adding something good." Old-fashioned images in bright watercolor illustrations invite readers to look twice: first at the charm of each cookie-baking vignette, and secondly at the detail given children and their animal friends joining in humanlike roles and dress. Cookies tie together the theme of the book; the making of them adds to the sweetness of the message.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services Plano ISD, TX

    WHAT A GREAT EDUCATIONAL & FUN BOOK!

    I am a mother of a 6 year old girl. My daughter will be starting her 1st grade this year and this is like a perfect book with a great "Cookie" theme and related vocabulary that is applicable in everyday life. I am very pleased with all that this book has to offer, with pictures and explaination. A must have for all those who want their kids to develop much higher vocabulary and command of English Language.
