Do you have an emerging reader that loves fun facts? (I do!!) Then The Way the Cookie Crumbled by Jody Jensen Shaffer is the perfect book to add to your reading. This book is a chapter book that takes you through the fantastically fun history of how cookies came to be. You might be surprised to learn the history - we were. One fun fact is that in England cookies aren't called cookies, they are called biscuits! That is just one tasty fact you will learn in this book. We used it as our read aloud this week in school and I've caught my son looking at it several times since. He really enjoyed the illustrations by Kelly Kennedy and learning all about one of his favorite treats. This book would be a great asset in a unit study. In fact we not only read this story but J-man drew a picture of the different varieties of cookies and we plan on baking some chocolate cookies very soon. (see how easy a unit study could come together!)
