Mr. Cookie Baker

by Monica Wellington

In the same style as Apple Farmer Annie, this little book takes the reader through a baker's day of work. All the steps are laid out and charmingly illustrated. The baker collects his ingredients, measures and mixes, cuts out animal shapes, bakes them in the oven, decorates, shows them off to the children, sells them in his shop and on the very last page, gets to eat one himself. I don't know why this is another cute book unpopular with my child. Maybe what she really likes about the apples one is the little cat and dog on nearly every page! O well, back to the library it goes. Perhaps she'll like it better when she's a bit older.

Rating: 3/5 ........ 24 pages, 1992
