Can you be best friends with someone who is SO different than you?
Cookie & Milk written by Michele McAvoy and illustrated by Jessica Gibson is a sweet and colorful story about the beauty of friendship and how different personalities contribute with a wonderful relationship. Cookie (real name Khloe) is a genius who loves math and science. Milk (Micaela) loves adventure, adrenaline and skateboarding. How does these two friends compliment each other?

I originally met Michele at the Book Expo in NYC this past spring. I was immediately drawn to the book because of the important lesson in friendships and how the text and illustration work in hand in hand.
What makes this book unique?
Cookie & Milk is unique in many ways! The story is a valuable lesson in friendship but also an opportunity for vocabulary expansion. For example, the word Mathematician is clearly defined on the page that the word is used. There are several words (9 total) like this that are highlighted throughout the book as well as included in the back in the Did You Know? page. Cookie and Milk also includes a page about friendship titled, S Words that Make a Best Friend.
