So when Jack smells something delicious coming from the kitchen, he can't believe his nose. Cookies! But his excitement turns to disappointment when he learns the cookies aren't for him. Instead, his mother is baking them for the needy people at their church. While Jack helps roll out the dough, his mother tells him the story of the Christmas cookie. In a captivating interplay of simple words and beautiful illustrations, this book tells a tender story of giving, not just cookies, but gifts of the heart that last forever.
