Media Monday: “Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons”

The “media” that I want to introduce to you today is an exceptional 2006 children’s book titled “Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons” written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jane Dyer. As the name implies, it uses cookies as a way to talk about lessons in life, highlighting certain words of virtue. For example, one has to be PATIENT in waiting for cookies to bake, and when you’ve baked some cookies, you could feel PROUD, but don’t run around bragging about it because you have to be MODEST. Of course you have to be FAIR sharing cookies with your friend, and be GENEROUS in giving. I like how the “half-eaten cookie” is illustrated like the “cup half full” thing when talking about being PESSIMISTIC vs. OPTIMISTIC. I also like when it talks about being OPEN-MINDED when trying out weird-looking cookies. I never thought that there are so many to look at cookies.

There’s a limited preview at Google books.

I borrowed this book from the library, and I seriously want to buy a copy. It’ll be great for Chase and River when they’re about 5 or 6 years old.

Tim’s thought on the book: “Life lessons are indeed everywhere.”
