Michele McAvoy has created a genuine story that breaks stereotypes and is sure to entertain, excite, and endear young readers and parents alike.

Reviews

"McAvoy's friendship tale features two girls who recount how they learned to be friends and bonded over their personality differences. Caregivers will also find helpful starter questions to ask when exploring differences with their kids. Those questions provide a framework within which young readers may learn to value and accept differences in themselves and others. Even after the story, readers are provided with a list of powerhouse women who were either 'smart' or 'sporty,' and a glossary of words encourages supportive friendships. Gibson's simple, cartoon illustrations playfully remind girls that there are universal commonalities in sisterhood. Smart, sassy, supportive girl power to the max!" —Kirkus

"A thoroughly charming picture book story with a valuable underlying message about friendship, Cookie & Milk will prove to be an enduringly popular and appreciated addition to family, elementary school, and community library collections for young readers." —Diane Donovan, Midwest Review
