How many cookies can one little girl eat before something strange begins to happen?
Once there was a very happy little girl who loved cookies. She loved them so much that she wouldn’t eat anything but cookies-cookies for breakfast, cookies for lunch, cookies for dinner. (Need we say even mention dessert?) Her parents tried everything they could think of to get her to eat the right foods, but all she would eat were cookies! Then one day, she began to change…
5 Stars for “Cookie”
This funny story, which should have youngsters laughing aloud, serves as a gentle reminder to all of us that while there’s nothing wrong with enjoying an occasional cookie, there are better things to eat.
Not only is Cookie a great story for children to share, but it’s an excellent reminder for children of all ages, to choose their foods carefully.
COOKIE will have wide appeal as a very well written book that will delight children as well as please parents or extended family members who share this cute story with youngsters.
I liked this story a lot. I feel it definitely gets the point across about proper eating but does not cause the child to feel they can never have a treat… I also liked the illustrations. They were simple and colorful and brought the story to life quite nicely.

The story is well written and will likely bring a smile to your child’s face. The illustrations are appropriate and add to the story. I would recommend the story to kids from ages 2-8 – however, it is probably at a about a 3rd or 4th grade reading level since Woomer does use some larger words i.e. broccoli, spaghetti, breakfast and so on.
Yes, adults can use this story to introduce or to reinforce messages about healthy eating. Children can imagine `what if?’ and enter the story in their own way. `Cookie’ is a delightful and beautifully illustrated story that, of course, ends well.
“Cookie” is a fun read aloud geared toward children between the ages of 3 to 7. However, when my daughter was 9 years-old she really enjoyed reading it to her younger brother. It gets them to use their imagination…what if you really are what you eat?! I have even had them extend this into an art and writing assignment; I have them draw pictures and write about other foods they like and what would happen if they turned into them. This book would also be an excellent way for teachers to kick off a unit on nutrition. I hope your children or students enjoy it as much as mine do!
Reading level age 9-12, read aloud age 3-7
