Book Review: Sugar Cookies: Sweet Little Lessons on Love

Author: Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Illustrated by Jane Dyer and Brooke Dyer
Interest Level: Ages 4 and Up

From The Book Jacket: The delectable follow-up to the bestselling Cookies and Christmas Cookies defines words that are associated with love. From letting your friend have the last cookie (selfless) to waiting to lick the bowl together (considerate), here is a book for anyone who wants to say I love you. Meanings are illuminated in this different kind of dictionary, which is every bit as heartwarming as the experience of baking cookies with someone you love.

Why It's On My Bookshelf: My hope is that we get this whole series in our school library. They are wonderful. If you are interested in teaching more character education, more values, or just simply working on increasing kindness in your children - then get these great books and start using the words from them in your daily vocabulary. I bought this one especially for my daughter but will also use it in the classroom. These types of books get me excited to help kids become such kind little souls. There's also a recipe for Sugar Cookies on the back page.
