Yum! This is my kind of day to celebrate. I do love chocolate. And chocolate chips. And chocolate chip cookies. So, why don’t we celebrate by reading a picture book about the invention of the chocolate chip cookie? I’ll be your mouth will be watering by the time you finish reading:
When I read the opening lines of this book, I was ready to do as instructed—sit back, grab a cookie (any excuse to eat a cookie), and turn the page to find out the ways the chocolate chip cookie could have been invented. And that’s the key to what makes this nonfiction book unique—it discusses the ways the famous cookie couldhave been invented (because no one knows for sure) and then discusses the probability of which theories are most likely true. Rather than a straight-forward approach to state the facts, Gilbert Ford offers some facts, some theories, and some prompts to help the reader analyze the text. This book covers history, inventions, business, a woman entrepreneur, and cookies! I hope you grab yourself a cookie and enjoy a reading of HOW THE COOKIE CRUMBLED.
