Reading leads to baking cookies in Concordia

CONCORDIA – Among new books ordered for children at the Cloud County Community College Children’s Center was a large copy of a long-time favorite story, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

After reading the book, the children wanted to make cookies, so after ensuring that all the ingredients were on hand, the group had a cooking session. That provided a math lesson (measuring,) a science lesson (differences between dry and wet ingredients,) and finally a tasting party.
