Let's get to know Cookie first.  Cookie is a dog with a simply but big ambition in her life.  She wishes to to walk in her hind legs everywhere.  To walk around the world would be a perfect treat for cookie, and it would be even better if an adventure of that kind will come accompanyed by lots of candy and bacon.  Cookie want to walk and wants to do it big!  She will be daring enough to walk to walk everywhere and to be diferrent.  She gets to be famous.  She will have to choose between her community with loving friends or been famous and get to walk all around the world.  What will Cookie choose?
This story is lovely.  It encourages kids to be brave, to try new things and to experience life.  Cookie is never shy and that makes her a wonderful character for kids to see and identify with.  This character is always motivated.  She loves treats but for her, treats are great but not her goal.  She walks because she loves it, because she wants to.  Her fuel to do better every time is motivated by her own drive, that is why for her, it is important to keep enjoying this activity.  She doesn't needed to be famous or been admired everywhere for her walk, walk she could do on her own neighborhood while enjoying her usual life and family.

The cover is colorful and vivid.  Inside we see Cookie doing plenty of unusual things highlighted by beautiful colors.  Looks really cute and unique.
This storybook is great for kids in primary school. It is engaging and because Cookie do many unique things I know kids will be asking questions during the entire reading of the story.

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel.

Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
