Sugar Cookies: Sweet Little Lessons on Love

Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Author, Jane Dyer, Illustrator, Brooke Dyer, Illustrator , illus. by Jane and Brooke Dyer. Harper $12.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-174072-5

With an endearing mix-and-match assemblage of humans and animals, this follow-up to Cookies and Christmas Cookies celebrates the vocabulary of love. In one spread, a mother goat in an apron looks lovingly at her offspring: “Adore means, I think you're simply delicious.” Elsewhere, a girl with blonde pigtails in a kerchief offers a cookie to a kitten: “Selfless means, No, really, please, I want you to have the last cookie.” As cozy and welcoming as a warm kitchen. Ages 5–10. (Nov.)
