Ma makes the kids, Sam and Victoria, a dozen cookies. She tells them to divide the cookies evenly. Ma tells them that no one makes cookies like Grandma. Suddenly, the door bell rings and unexpected guests show up. Each time people arrive, the kids have to recalculate how many cookies each person gets. This story is a fun way to teach mathematics. The repetitious phrases also help young children to read naturally and engage with the story.
