Not as strong as the other books in the series, but a good one for language arts
I love how this book told a story and at the same time gave meaning to certain terms. This would be a great activity to do with a class in the school cafeteria. Start by reading the book, then bring them into the cafeteria and reinterpret the cook while you're making the cookies. While the cookies bake continue to help the students learn the terms.
I am a mother of a 6 year old girl. My daughter will be starting her 1st grade this year and this is like a perfect book with a great "Cookie" theme and related vocabulary that is applicable in everyday life. I am very pleased with all that this book has to offer, with pictures and explaination. A must have for all those who want their kids to develop much higher vocabulary and command of English Language.
