This board book offers simple illustrations with complex text and works for two ages. First, for young children, the board book side offers simple vector illustrations showing Cookie Monster making cookies. For older children, the text is both longer and surprisingly sophisticated for a board book. It explains how, when feeling impatient, Cookie Monster — and anyone else — can stop to take note of what his senses are experiencing, to allow one to lengthen the spaces between stimulus and response. It’s good advice for any age!
