Cookies : Bite-Size Life Lessons

0060580828


·
 
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2 Using the activity of making and eating cookies, the author defines some important concepts for young children, such as respect, trustworthiness, patience, politeness, loyalty, etc. The book begins: COOPERATE means, How about you add the chips while I stir? and continues with one definition per page. For example, FAIR means, You get a bite, I get a bite….; REGRET means, I really wish I didn't eat so many cookies; and CONTENT means sitting on the steps just you, me, and a couple of cookies. Lovely pastel watercolor illustrations show appealing children and anthropomorphic animals interacting with one another and the treats. Although books dealing with this type of subject tend to be didactic and preachy, the utilization of the cookies to explain the concepts is a brilliant...


If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
Laura Joffe Numeroff
0060245867
June 1985
Hardcover

Book Review
Who would ever suspect that a tiny little mouse could wear out an energetic young boy? Well, if you're going to go around giving an exuberantly bossy rodent a cookie, you'd best be prepared to do one or two more favors for it before your day is through. For example, he'll certainly need a glass of milk to wash down that cookie, won't he? And you can't expect him to drink the milk without a straw, can you? By the time our hero is finished granting all the mouse's very urgent requests--and cleaning up after him--it's no wonder his head is becoming a bit heavy. Laura Joffe Numeroff's tale of warped logic is a sure-fire winner in the giggle-generator category. But concerned parents can rest assured, there's even a little education thrown in for good measure: underneath the folly rest valuable lessons about cause and effect....

Book Review
All traces of willpower dissipate somewhere between the rich, moist, and chewy Cheese Cake Brownies; the delicate, crispy Palm Beach Lemon Cookies; and the flaky, tender Portland Fig Cookies, bursting with an unbelievably decadent filling of dried figs, currants, walnuts, and spices. Trust Nick Malgieri, award-winning author, James Beard nominee, and director of the baking program at Peter Kump's Cooking School in New York, to gather a collection of more than 350 cookie recipes that we can't live without.

Each mouthwatering recipe begins with a short introduction. Sometimes Malgieri tells us what the cookies will look and taste like, sometimes he tells us a bit about their origins, and sometimes we meet the people who first shared the recipes with him. In each case he is sure to pique interest. If Malgieri says that...

Cookie Count

Book Review
Yum! This delicious counting book offers much more than the numbers one to ten. Each page is a feast of sweet, sugary treats--coconut kisses, peanut-butter cookies, Linzer hearts, and more are carefully concocted and counted by mouse chefs. The tempting desserts are made all the more delectable by Robert Sabuda's brilliant pop-up constructions that leap from the pages, practically into your salivating mouth. Aesthetes will swoon at the magical beauty of this exquisite book, and the engineers in the crowd will wonder, "How did he do that?" Sabuda's astounding creations may be too delicate for excessive youthful probing, but the sing-song rhyme, counting exercises, and joyous paper explosions of confectionery delights make this a wondrous read-aloud for the sweet-toothed of all ages. (Ages 3 and up)

Part of Scribner's "All About" series, adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbooks, this volume includes dozens of cookie recipes, divided by type: drop, bar, rolled, filled, and the like.

Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook : The Best Recipes from Southampton's Favorite Bakery for Home-Style Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Muffins, and Breads

From Publishers Weekly
King's previous book, Kathleen's Bake Shop Cookbook, is one of the most solid baking books out there; its no-frills—and no-fail—recipes were inspired by the mouthwatering fare served at the author's old Southampton, N.Y., bakery, Kathleen's Bake Shop. Now that King has moved on to Tate's Bake Shop, the treats she's whipping up haven't much changed, as the 100 recipes in this solid work demonstrate. The two books have a lot in common (including identical subtitles); standards like Orange–Poppy Seed Muffins, Ginger Hearts, Chocolate-Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Squares appear in both. This new work includes some slightly fancier recipes, like Nutella Shortbread Sandwich Cookies, Warm Individual Chocolate Cakes, Mocha Pecan Muffins and Fresh Blueberry and White Chocolate Tart.

From Library Journal
Peters ( Colette's Cakes , LJ 8/91) was a designer at Tiffany's before starting a successful cake-designing business in New York City, and her artistic talents are evident in the elaborate, often jewellike cookies, cakes, and ornaments and decorations in her new book. Decoration is the star in this collection of whimsical fantasies, from stunning stained glass cakes to a miniature Victorian greenhouse constructed of royal icing. There are some less complicated projects, and holiday bakers will be inspired by the cut-out cookies and gift ideas--but busy cooks would probably have to start now to complete some of these creations before next year's Christmas! For most baking collections.Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
