How many cookies can one little girl eat before

something strange begins to happen?

Once there was a very happy little girl who loved cookies. She loved them so much that she wouldn't eat anything but cookies-cookies for breakfast, cookies for lunch, cookies for dinner. (Need we even mention dessert?) Her parents tried everything they could think of to get her to eat the right foods, but all she would eat were cookies! Then one day, she began to change.


Book Excerpt

Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a girl named Cookie. Well, actually her name was Catherine Isabella Marie Jenkins but everyone just called her Cookie. Everyone called her Cookie because that is all she would eat. She ate oatmeal cookies for breakfast, peanut butter cookies for lunch, chocolate chip cookies for dinner and what do you think she ate for desert? Why, she ate cookies of course.


About the Author

Lisa Woomer

Lisa Woomer, a former schoolteacher and mother of two, has studied fitness and nutrition as a hobby for many years. She was inspired to write Cookie after the birth of her first child, who turned out to be a very picky eater. "I realized," she said, "that no matter how many times you try to get children to eat healthy foods, they still would rather eat cookies than broccoli." She hopes this story will motivate other children to choose a healthier diet. Lisa lives in Southern California with her husband, two children, and two dogs. She likes preparing healthy food for her family, but also enjoys an occasional cookie.
