"This is the book so many parents in the library are looking for. It explains characters and values (respect, modesty, pride, generosity, etc.) via the analogy of cookies -- simple and in scenarios kids will understand (waiting for the cookies to be done, not bragging about having the best cookies, open-mindedly trying a weird cookie a friend is offering, etc). Includes animal characters and racially diverse human children. If you know Amy Krouse Rosenthal's books, you probably know you'll like this. " said.

"The book jacket calls this book a "new kinds of dictionary," however it is not in alphabetical order nor does it contain an index or table of contents. That's okay, because while it doesn't work as a dictionary, it does succeed at teaching little life lessons through cookies. For example: "Proud means, my chin is high, and I sure do like the way my cookies turned out." and "Modest means you don't run around telling everyone you make the best cookies, even if you know it to be true." This is a sweet book with equally sweet illustrations." said.

"Just excellent! Simple text. Some of it might be a little hard for my almost 4 year old daughter to explain but she enjoys it and my added explanations from incidents in her daily life she can relate to. Funny thing too....I normally skip the pages on pessimistic and optimistic because I felt that the concepts might be too hard for her to understand and even pronounce but she caught me this time and when she couldn't say opitmistic she said 'happy-mistic'! Now that is our new word!
I she loves most of the books by this author!
