Christmas Cookies: Bite Size Holiday Lessons is similar to a vocabulary book with lessons than an actual story. You may not realize it, but there are many lessons and emotions when we make cookies. Each page has a bold word and definition that relates to the cookie making process. Some of the words and lessons mentioned are Anticipation to wait all day to make cookies, Charitable to give a batch to people, Frustrated that the cookies burnt again, and Family to enjoy the cookies together. In the book, animals have human-like characteristics as they help bake and share cookies. If you enjoy this book, the author wrote similar food lesson books. Personally, Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas without baking and sharing cookies.
