This is the perfect book to explain to your kids why you make cookies for the holidays! I had never heard of this story before and I loved it! The illustrations are fantastic, and kids will love the little puppy that is also in the book. Cookies are made to tell others about the real Christmas story of Jesus being born. You make cookies in the shapes of angels and shepherds and camels and then you share what you have made. While sharing this delicious treat you tell the story about what the shapes mean and the story behind the birth of Christ. Such a great idea and a good thing for kids to think about. Making your holiday treats can be more than just giving out sweets, meet your neighbors, and tell them the story!
