PreSchool-- For many youngsters, cookies come only in packages or boxes. This book explains the process of baking them. It shows a baker's day, from setting out raw ingredients to closing the door once everything is sold. For each double-paged spread, one brief sentence describes the process: "He mixes the cookie dough" stands for measuring, mixing, creaming, beating, and stirring. Without a doubt, this is a happy baker. He smiles as he reads his recipe; while removing baking sheets full of browned cookies from the oven, he licks his lips. The illustrations, done in gouache and colored pencils, perfectly match the informational and emotional levels in this book; the uncluttered shapes resemble those produced by cookie cutters. The man's features, as well as those of his happy customers, could have been drawn with icing. Warm clear corals, oranges, and yellows predominate. Ingredients, utensils, decorated cookies, even money and glasses, pitchers and cartons of milk dance on the decorative borders and cheerful endpapers. This is an ideal book to use with toddlers and preschoolers. Beware! It's guaranteed to cause a demand for cookies. Of course, a detailed recipe follows the story. --Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
