One Smart Cookie

Start your school year with a fantastic book
teaching admirable character traits.

One Smart Cookie offers a fresh batch of words that encompasses everything you might say to a child, whether it's the first day of preschool or the last day of high school. Cookie-centric definitions range from wanting to know everything about cookies (curious) to thinking carefully about what kind of cookies to make for your friend (ponder).  Reading this book at the start of the school year will start those valuable conversations about good character and the people we would like to be.  This is one vocabulary list that will resonate well beyond the school years.

These are the vocabulary words you will find in this book:
prompt                      kindness                      humble
organized                   listening                      arrogant
