Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 4-7. Cookies don't come from packages, they come from nature, as this jaunty picture book shows. Ben is baking honey cookies with his grandma. Each time Ben asks, "What do we need?" Grandma has the real answer: a cow and grass to make the milk, sugarcane growing thick and tall, a thousand buzzing bees, even dried bark from a tree. Bark? Yes, cinnamon bark. Grandma explains everything: how the bees pack flower nectar into waxy cells to turn into honey and how to cream the butter and roll out the dough. The childlike art is sunny with lots of yellows, greens, and blues coloring the two-page spreads or those featuring one large picture of a cooking ingredient in its natural state and two smaller ones that show what the products look like when processed. Once in a while the text raises more questions than it answers (how, a child might wonder, does the cow turn grass into milk?), but in general this is a happy introduction to the ways nature provides cooking ingredients. Recipe included. Ilene Cooper

Format: Hardcover
Grandma and Ben are making cookies--from scatch--starting with the cow. Grandma shows Ben the source of all the ingredients in their honey cookies. This excellent story is illustrated with bright energetic paintings and provides young children with an understanding of natural, human, and capital resources necessary to create a favorite food. These basic economic concepts are taught in many elementary schools.
