About the Author

When Heather E. Schwartz was thirteen years old, she tracked down several lead orphans from the 1983 movie "Annie" and interviewed them by phone. As an adult, she realized she could apply those same early instincts to a career as a journalist and writer. She is the author of more than 35 nonfiction children's titles, published by Lerner Publishing Group, Capstone Press, Teacher Created Materials, Lucent Books, and Tangerine Press, a Scholastic imprint. She has written articles for National Geographic Kids and Discovery Girls. In addition, she developed the content for KidsGetArthritisToo.org, the juvenile section of the Arthritis Foundation's website. Other credits in the children's market include articles for Teen, Girls' Life, and All About You magazines. Additionally, Ms. Schwartz is a former editor at Bridal Guide magazine, co-author of Bridal Guide Magazine's How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Gown (Warner, 2004), and contributor to The Takeout Cookbook (Knock Knock 2007).

Reviews

"Cookie Monster and his pink monster friend, Gonger, invites readers to join him on an adventure as he takes his foodie truck through Sesame Street. Hop aboard and learn about which kinds of foods are 'sometimes foods' and which are 'all-the-time foods.' Along the way, meet up with other characters from the neighborhood who teach readers about nutrition and give out some recipes. Bert and Ernie share their recipe for blueberry and strawberry salad, while Grover dishes out the directions for making his super tomato soup. Some recipes require adult supervision, and we are reminded to wash our hands and be leery of food allergies before diving into cooking. Facts about the ingredients used in the recipes are also mentioned. For example, readers will learn that quinoa is really a seed and grows in South America. Illustrations are vivid and colorful and include people from varying cultures. VERDICT A lively and entertaining way to introduce cooking to youngsters and get them thinking about ways to keep their bodies healthy and strong. Includes a glossary, index, and bibliography."--School Library Journal
