Cookies, Bite-Size Life Lessons, written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jane Dyer, is a beautiful book exploring character traits. Cookies are used as the item to depict how the character traits (examples: respect, compassion, loyalty, etc.,) are defined in various situations. The book can be read in its entirety, but a page or two can be read and discussed when needed. I think this book is a great teaching tool for families and classrooms. The pages are interesting while also exemplifying how our actions affect others. And, as an added bonus, a recipe for chocolate chip cookies is included in the back of the book!
