OH! I think I have a new cookie to make! Santa’s Krinkle Cookies! In Cookies for Santa, children the world over come to Santa’s rescue. It’s a fun, cute read just in time for Christmas. Let’s dive into this review shall we?
What I am Reviewing
Cookies for Santa is the Story of how Santa’s favourite cookie Saved Christmas. Johanna Tarkela with the help of America’s Test Kitchen brings us a gorgeous picture book all about cookies for Santa.
Santa’s tradition of baking cookies for all of Santa’s helpers is under threat! Where’s the cookbook? Christmas is bound to be cancelled if proper thank you’s can’t be made. Who will help Santa?
Children 4-8 years old will be delighted with the 32 full-colour pages of this beautiful picture book. A delightful Christmas book, takes the folktale of Santa and his cookies and flips it on it’s head. What a great way to look at one of the many Christmas myths! 🙂
The Details of Cookies for Santa
Johanna Tarkela has done a remarkable job illustrating Cookies for Santa. I loved the colours and details in the illustrations. Seeing the children’s faces come to life… just marvellous don’t you think?
I rather enjoyed this picture book. It was interesting how they took the “leave cookies for Santa” and turned it into a deeper meaning, helping Santa save Christmas.
If it wasn’t for America’s Test kitchen they probably wouldn’t have managed. But that’s the joy of cooking isn’t it? To experiment until you get it just right. 🙂
Through them, the recipe was perfected and the whole world worked to help Santa. Cookies were made for Santa to eat, and enough that he can share them with all his loved ones and helpers.
It was a cute story and well worth reading, even if you don’t believe in Santa.
You might remember The Complete Baking book for Young Chefs that I reviewed a bit back. This was also from America’s Test Kitchen.
