“Cookie” Books by Amy Rosenthal
Of these books, I’d like to highlight a two of my very favorites. The first on my list is One Smart Cookie by Amy Rosenthal. Her books are just wonderful for vocabulary development and life lessons. For young readers, it’s important to read books at a higher level to develop word knowledge and usage, and with this book, not only will students get lessons on social skills, but they can relate to cookie making too. Kids love to make cookies and eating them! Making homemade cookies is an experience some children don’t get to have often, so why not make cookies with your class after sharing this lovely book. Amy’s other titles are featured below, and each is a must read to and with your classes.

Other Reading Options
Cooking with children is very rewarding, and any time you can embed reading with your activities, it’s a win-win, right! Plus, thematic teaching just makes sense when you can include multiple subjects into the theme. It is very motivating.
