Baking Cookies Builds Character
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     "Let's make some Christmas cookies," suggested Ruth. "It's fun to bake cookies, especially when we get to eat them."
 
2     "That's a good idea. You can learn a lot from baking cookies," said Mother.
 
3     "Like what?" asked Mary.
 
4     "Well, to start with we can learn cooperation," answered Mother.
 
5     "What is co...co...co..op..eration?" asked Sam.
 
6     "Cooperation is working together. It is when you get the bowl and I get the flour. You put in the eggs and I stir," said Mother.
 
7     Mary, Sam, and Ruth put on their kitchen aprons. They gathered all the ingredients to make the cookies. They took turns adding the ingredients. They took turns stirring the dough.
 
8     Ruth put the cookie dough on the counter. Mary rolled the dough into a thin sheet. They took turns with the cookie cutters. Mary cut out stars. Ruth cut out snowmen. Sam cut out Christmas trees. Then they placed the cookies on a baking tray.
 
9     "Now we will learn about patience," said Mother.
