Cookies

I rarely do reviews of children's products mainly because, well, nobody pays me to! But I have thought, on occasion, that some of the items that make their way into my home are worthy of a mention to other people. Hence, the blog! A great way to pass the word, eh? I know, I know... I'm slow to the game.

Anywho!!

I have been looking for a book for my baby nephew's baptism that is coming up in a few weeks. (I'm to be his Godmother! Isn't that awesome?) I wanted a book that was not too religious or preachy (as that is NOT who I am), tender and inspiring and definitely readable to a young child. I was getting very discouraged until I stumbled upon a book today, called "Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Jane Dyer.

This book is simply edible, it's that sweet! Love it! I read through it at the store, briefly, and was captivated by the beautiful drawings and sweet messages on every page. It describes life etiquette lessons and how to be a good person in a loving and simple way. It's perfect for my nephew, and so adorable that I am actually thinking of buying another for my own children, especially after reading it all the way through at home (and I hate paying full price for a children's book. I like it that much!)

So. My first recommendation of a children's item has definitely received full marks from me!

I think I'll get myself a copy! It sounds wonderful! Maybe it will keep me from reaching for the real thing. I have some Winter weight to lose. It sounds like my kids might like it too! Thank you!

What a great idea! I was having a similar dilemma when picking out a baptism gift a couple of weeks ago and Easter gifts for a godson/nephew this past weekend. Thank You!

Thanks for the comment! I found two more women with our name at Sweetney and Mother May I. I think that this is so cool. I have them listed in my favorites! Have a great day!

Oh my gosh, that book is so sweet. It's absolutely adorable, but I love that it also presents the concepts in ways that children can absolutely understand. Thanks for sharing it with us. Happy Easter.

Sounds like a great book, and definitely one I'll give as a gift (and pick up for myself too). And congrats, Godmother!

I'd love to find that book. I'm going looking-My brother and his wife asked me to be their baby's Godmother. I feel so honored. . .

I will have to check out that book, sounds great. I think it is really neat that you get to be a godmother, what a privilege.
