Shoot! It's hard to plop out a ball of dough small enough for these mini cookies--each drop was supposed to be only a whopping half teaspoon. Anyhow, these are for my daughter's 3rd grade class--a birthday treat I'll hand out tomorrow after being the guest storybook reader just before the lunch hour.
I'm really looking forward to sharing the book I picked out--"The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot", by Alice Provensen. It's a charming historical picture book about the first man to cross the English Channel in a plane. The author tells the story of Bleriot's many engineering failures, and of his triumphant persistence, with a tone that's so endearing and accessible to children.
