Girl Scout Cookie season is upon us! Whether you’re stocking up to last through the year or you’re practicing self-control, there is no denying that a frozen Thin Mint can cure any ailment.
We thought, what better way to celebrate the season of bite-sized cookies than to pair them with a few of our favorite soon to be released books?
That’s why we’re excited to share our five favorite Girl Scout Cookie/West Margin Press book to cookie pairings.
A Cool (and Chilly!) Pairing
We think Chia and the Fox Man by Barbara and Ethan Atwater, and illustrated by Mindy Dwyer pairs well with the Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie. Chia and the Fox Man is an Alaskan Dena’ina Fable, about a young boy and his encounter with the fabled Fox Man, and how doing the right thing isn’t always easy but important in the end. We think this goes well with the Thin Mint because this peppermint, chocolate cookie is cold and crisp, a perfect cool Alaskan cookie! And Thin Mints are even better frozen.
A Long Lasting Pair
Raised in Ruins by Tara Neilson pairs well with the oh-so-delicious, Tagalongs. Raised in Ruins is the extraordinary memoir of a woman’s unconventional childhood growing up in the Alaskan wilderness, on the grounds where the burned remains of a cannery once stood. We think it pairs well with the Tagalongs because this delicious Girl Scout Cookie is peanut butter coated in chocolate…and peanut butter is a pantry staple, one you’d certainly find in a pantry out in rural Alaska!
A Pair to Last For Miles
Hiking Trails of Southwestern Colorado by John Peel, and Paul Pixler pairs well with the just sweet enough, Do-si-Do. We paired these two together because we think the Do-si-Do would make an exceptional snack out on a beautiful hike in Southwestern Colorado. Plus, the peanut butter has a little protein to keep you going while you’re out there.
A Pair to Fuel Adventures
A Search for the Northern Lights written by Elizabeth and Izzi Rusch, and illustrated by Cedar Lee pairs with the quintessential Samoa. We paired these two together because A Search for the Northern Lights is about the adventure of a mom and her daughter embarking on an adventure in search for the illusive Northern Lights. We thought it would go well with a Samoa because in the story, the duo had to stay up late to see the lights, and what better way to stay awake than with a chocolatey-coconut cookie?
A Pair to Have Some Fun
Golden Gate Park, an A to Z Adventure pairs well with the debut cookie, the Lemon-Ups! We paired these two together because of how fun they both are. Golden Gate Park, written by Marta Lindsey and illustrated by Michael Wertz, is a fun and interactive guide all through San Francisco’s famous Golden Gate Park. The lemon-up cookies are meant to inspire and motivate girls to be leaders, and be fearless in their endeavors.
