|To see inside Mr. Cookie Baker
"This is an ideal book to use with toodlers and preschoolers.
Beware! It's guaranteed to cause a demand for cookies."
"Kids and cookies go hand-in-hand, and here's a how-to for
the very youngest bakers. Every morning Mr. Cookie Baker gets ready to
provide the neighborhood children with the treats they so love. He mixes
his dough, rolls it and cuts it with cookie cutters, and bakes, decorates,
and then serves up the cookies to the horde of hungry children that crowds
his shop after school. The brief text is illustrated by art that at first
glance seems merely bright and cheerful, but closer inspection shows Wellington's
compositions to be quite complex. Cookies in a vast array of shapes surround
the boldly lettered text, while intricate design work and careful colorings
enliven the facing illustrations. This tasty treat will have instant appeal
for individuals and groups."
Since childhood I have always loved baking cookies at holiday time. And briefly I worked at a famous New York City bakery. These two things came together and inspired the idea for this book.
My recipe for sugar cookies is included at the end of the book, and on the ACTIVITES page of this website. I hope you enjoy making them!
