Praise

Praise for Stop and Smell the Cookies:

“A humorous yet compassionate portrayal of the challenges of self-regulation . . . Dash’s zest for life is palpable, as are both the tension that builds as he’s about to do something wrong and his contrition afterward. It’s clear that Dash is a good kid whose big feelings overwhelm him.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A boy’s difficulty managing strong feelings repeatedly leads to trouble until he learns to “stop and smell the cookies” in this drama-filled picture book . . . Luckily, Mom comes to the rescue with a visualization exercise that Dash tries out the very next day, and models for readers who might relate to his challenges. Player’s bright digital drawings depict Dash’s highs and lows with a verve that elevates Frazier’s well-intentioned storytelling.” —Publishers Weekly

“Dash doesn’t mean to mess up, but he just can’t help karate-chopping his grandma’s plate of cookies, blurting out the answer in class, and blowing out the candles on Cate’s birthday cake . . . Frazier addresses the important and much-needed topic of self-control. The language is simple, and the story rolls out examples that kids can relate to and understand; readers will identify with Dash . . . This is an important issue, tautly articulated and addressed.”School Library Journal
