Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Baking cookies and love are the themes of this book that defines words associated with love. Each page presents a word with a definition and a scenario having to do with cookies , culminating in a little lesson about life and love. Words that young children would not often encounter are used throughout the book: "Heartfelt means, I made these sprinkly cookies for you because I know they're your absolute favorite kind." Other keywords include: compassionate, admire, supportive, and tenderness.. These words are explained simply and clearly in the context of cookie-baking, so that each situation and the meaning of the words should be understandable to the young reader. The lovely illustrations show adults, children, and some cute animals in clothes. There is a recipe for sugar cookies on the last page. Thoughtful and poetic, this is a wonderful book for parents to read aloud to their children. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
Publishers Weekly
With an endearing mix-and-match assemblage of humans and animals, this follow-up to Cookies and Christmas Cookies celebrates the vocabulary of love. In one spread, a mother goat in an apron looks lovingly at her offspring: “Adore means, I think you're simply delicious.” Elsewhere, a girl with blonde pigtails in a kerchief offers a cookie to a kitten: “Selfless means, No, really, please, I want you to have the last cookie.” As cozy and welcoming as a warm kitchen. Ages 5–10. (Nov.)

    Great Messages for Children and Adults

    I love to read this book to my child. Each page has a different word with a definition of that word related to cookies and people. The definitions are very realistic in terms of real-world application. For example, "Admire means, I really look up to you and the way you are with you cookies. You remind me of what is good and possible in this world." Or "Supportive means that when your cookies are a huge hit at the bake sale, no one is happier for you than I am." My favorite is, "How Much I Love You means that even if I made cookies from morning to night every single day forever and ever and ever, it still wouldn't even come close." The illustrations are cute with animals dressed up as people alongside real people. There is even a sugar cookie recipe at the end in case your budding cook is interested in make his or her own sugar cookies. Give this book a read. It is definitely SWEET.

    Wonderful book for children ages 4-8

    This book combines an interest in cooking and baking with learning new vocabulary in a "sweet" way. Each page begins with a challenging new vocabulary word that children can relate to cooking and baking. The illustrations are gorgeous. The richness of sharing the joy of baking cookies, talking about the new words, observing the illustrations, and creating a moment of togetherness with your favorite child is priceless.

    GREAT INSPIRATIONAL BOOK

    This is the second book in this series. I purchased a copy of the first book, "Cookies", for my son's teacher and liked it so much that I purchased one for myself. I, of course, had to purchase this one when it came out. It is the cutest book of life's little lessons in terms that children can understand. It is definitely something we will read and reread over the years and will hopefully pass on to my son's kids.
