I love this book me and my kids read it and it was wonderful It opened up a whole world for them.
I bought this book on a whim because my kids love these books. After reading the story, I love it, though! The cookie struggles to feel smart and feels anxious over it, but in the end, she recognizes that everyone has different talents. We are always talking to our kids about this as one of our kids struggles to fit the school mold. I think this book is excellent!
Good story line with a good lesson for kids to overcome their fears and build self confidence. Colorful pictures, fun and easy to read.

My 3 year old loves all the books in this series, and this one did not disappoint! I will say that it doesn't have the silly humor/puns like some of the others... but it still has a great foundational story that's presented in a relatable way. Definitely going to be a book that my son can grow with for a long time to come!

I hate to be the one to do it, but these book did not live up to expectations. I own every book in the collection and adore them! This one however was just….blah. It seemed to go on and on about and lost the attention of my kiddos about 4 pages in. No humor in here at all and it didn’t even flow well together like the others. It just seemed boring and dragged on. I pre ordered months ago anticipating something wonderful like the others, definitely missed the mark with this one unfortunately.
