What's the story?
If your little one loves Cookie Monster, C IS FOR COOKIE is the recording for you. The songs are filled with imaginative ideas. In "If Moon Was Cookie," Cookie Monster says he would put on a space suit and ride to the moon in a rocket ship just to take a bite! "Breakfast Time" reveals that Cookie's favorite breakfast includes soft-boiled cookies and a glass of cookie juice. "The Ballad of Casey McPhee" celebrates the value of courage, with Cookie Monster overcoming a moral dilemma in order to eat his way through a major obstacle. And the concept of opposites is introduced in "Up and Down."
Is it any good?
A variety of musical styles and clever lyrics make this album a delight for young children. One 4-year-old, after listening intently, asked repeatedly if she could hear "the Cookie Monster" again. Young children will love the humor in these songs, and their siblings are likely to also find C IS FOR COOKIE thoroughly entertaining.
Talk to your kids about ...

"Healthy Food" serves up a playful rock song that encourages children to eat a varied diet. Discuss whether various foods are junk or healthy.
