Review--Cookie Monster's Guide to Life: The Joy of Cookies by Cookie Monster

In life, there is one thing we can all agree on: cookies.

And there is no greater expert on this endless source of joy, warmth, and crumbs than Cookie Monster. In The Joy of Cookies, Cookie Monster offers deep thoughts on life, friendship, baking, and the love of cookies. He serves as our guide to all things cookie and shares how best to fully experience the joy cookies bring us.

This is a book to get us through the dark times and celebrate the good times, and to help us more fully understand who we truly are as both cookie lovers and as people.

It’s the perfect gift for friends, family, and fellow monsters—the gift of cookies.

On the in between reads kick, I turn to one that I’ve been wanting to read for a while and oddly, struggled to find time for! Cookie Monster’s Guide to Life: The Joy of Cookies was a splendid read! Written by Cookie Monster himself, this delightful little book will inspire you in many ways.

This was a cute little read! I love those cute little books that prove to be motivating and make you laugh or smile all the same! I used to have a collection of Zelda Wisdom books that provided the same feelings! In this little book we get to have little nuggets of wisdom from Cookie Monster himself! He will help you to find the joy in the little things in life. But mostly cookies!

As a kid, Cookie Monster was my favorite character on Sesame Street. Us cookielovers have to stick together, just like us booklovers. To be truthful, some of Cookie’s advice was very sound, if still a little funny. He made some great points that I wasn’t really expecting to be so thought-provoking.

As a bonus, there are THREE cookie recipes in here that Cookie highly recommends! I especially enjoyed his comments on not eating the cookie dough…though I can’t say I will take that advice, though health reasons says I should! But as Cookie would say, “you only live once. But if you eat cookies, once enough.” I think he’d respect my decision!

The book itself is rather adorable as well! A huge bite was taken out of it, because it’s a book about cookies of course! And I discovered there’s a rather colorful copyright warning, a delightful dedication page, a humorous author’s note, and a warming acknowledgements page as well! Seriously, this book was all kinds of fun and had me smiling throughout! Definitely one I will return to when I’m having a bad day!

Overall Rating 5/5 stars



  1. Cookies! I also love cookie monster! I still catch myself singing "C is for cookie" and this book sounds fun. I've made cookie dough just to eat (no need for eggs in "edible" chocolate chip dough because you're not needing a binding agent), so eat away!

  2. This is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Love cookie monster!
