What is the The Magical Arguing Cookies about?
The Magical Arguing Cookies is a children’s book about two cookies who can’t agree on anything. With the help of their magical friend, the book aims to celebrate differences and help children recognize that what we might perceive as flaws are actually unique traits that make each of us special.
What inspired you to write this book, The Magical Arguing Cookies?
“The inspiration behind my book was from January 2022, where I suffered a freak accident. I lost hearing (in my left ear) because of Covid, and I was only 14. I felt really isolated from friends, and I was even self-conscious and embarrassed because I didn’t want to be judged or seen as different. Eventually, I worked on accepting it, and when I did, I wrote my book, The Magical Arguing Cookies, so that I could teach kids that what they might think are flaws are really just traits that make them special and unique. It’s a book where I hope to celebrate differences.”
