Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

The Baker's Dozen is a delightful tale with beautiful illustrations and a good message or two. It would make a great gift for little children. ( )

I love folktales and THE BAKER'S DOZEN was a fun one.

Though principally a tale about why a 'bakers dozen' is 13 instead of 12, there are some other lessons tucked into the story that one can discuss with older children.

The story begins with Van Amsterdam a successful baker. The man is renown for his Christmas cookies and does a brisk business in them. All is well until Van Amsterdam realizes that if he just short changes his famous recipe, just a little bit, that he can make even more profit per cookie.

He does this, and all is well, until one day an old woman shows up. Well, you know how we are. We suspect something is up; and when the old woman demands 13 cookies instead of 12 the baker refuses. The old woman storms from his shop, and consequently his business implodes.

That is, until the old woman re-appears a year later and this time Van Amsterdam gives her 13 cookies.

The tale is well told. The artwork is charming. And Heather Forest's THE BAKER'S DOZEN is worth sharing.

(100) Colonial-era baker Van Amsterdam learns the value of generosity and invents the concept of the "baker's dozen" in this tale with just a sprinkle of the supernatural. The style of the book's watercolor illustrations are consistent with its publication date of 1988. While this book lacks some of the storytelling panache of Forest's Stone Soup, it is a pleasant holiday tale set during the holiday season. Its reference to St. Nicholas-shaped cookies -- but not to Christmas -- makes it a palatable option for multicultural communities. ( )

Everything you want in a good folktale: A greedy baker who learns his lesson, that only by being generous can one become prosperous. Just right for second and third graders, too, which is generally the age students start talking about folktales. ( )
