Where would we be without Ruth Graves Wakefield? Well, we wouldn’t have any chocolate chip cookies! Ruth first baked her cookies in her hotel, the Toll House Inn, but they became so famous that Nestlé offered her a free lifetime supply of chocolate to print her recipe on the back of their chocolate bars! Her cookies were even shipped to soldiers overseas during World War II, cementing the chocolate chip cookie as one of America's favorite treats.
This level one book from the I Can Read series uses easy but interesting vocabulary and simple sentences to teach young readers about Wakefield's delicious invention. It's sure to prompt a little kitchen experimentation in budding chefs and bakers!
