Kneadacookie-OMG! Your cookies are amazing as usual! The giving tree is my favorite children's book. I give it at every baby shower I attend. I still cry when I read it.

Even if we can't get a new Gallery maybe we could just make sure that everyone puts in there title or description that it is for the cookie of the month or something, that way when people do a search they will come up. Not sure if it would work.?? Just a thought!

Well, your month is May.....you can start it early if you want, but I would probably wait until the middle of April before you do. I started this one for April early since it is new in order to get people's creative juices flowing.

I love the idea of a cookie club. I am very new to cookies and would love an excuse to practice.

To clarify April will be for the book cover cookies and then kneedacookie will pick the theme for May? Is that correct?

Ok, I know its not April yet, but I baked this weekend, dont know if I'll get to this week...busy, busy, busy. Anyway, my daughter loves the book The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown and I really love the page where he says "I'll be a crocus in a hidden garden"
Yes, I used tulips and a brown bunny, but thats the inspiration. It also got me thinking about other books and sources for inspiration.....

very pretty and it fits perfectly for a book theme. I still have yet to make mine. I had my son's birthday party this weekend, this week is spring break, so I am hoping to get them done at some point during the week. I already have the dough all made, just need to get my but in gear and do it. =) Maybe I will do a cookie day with the kids. THey would love that.

I don't have a photo for various reasons ... but I made cookies inspired by "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" for my older DS' preschool birthday party.

For those who aren't up on their preschool literature (icon_biggrin.gif), the book goes "Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? I see a red bird looking at me ..." And so on and so forth through the red bird, yellow duck, green frog, blue horse, purple cat, white dog, black sheep, goldfish ...

There were cookies for each animal in the appropriate colors. They were so cute! Wish I had a pic. icon_sad.gif

There are cookies inspired by "Corduroy" in my pics, too.

If I can find the time this week, I'm thinking about making "Goodnight Moon" cookies. It's one of my usual baby shower gifts and I'm thinking a basket of cookies with a book would be a great present ... hmmm ...

the corduroy cookies are adorable. i have to do cookies for a hungry caterpillar baby shower on the 25th. we'll see what i can come up with.... i'm trying to figure out how to get the icing to look painted like it does in the book. glace icing doesn't paint well like royal does.

So, I know that I just started this thread, but there is a good possibility that my 10 month old son has cancer, so I might not be able to participate in this as I had envisioned. Would someone be willing to step up and take the reigns so to speak? If I get the chance I will add photos and participate. Thanks.

freddyfl - I am so sorry to hear that. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I would be happy to "take the reigns" until you are ready to take them back. Just pm me and let me know what you want me to do.

Thanks for the prayers...we go in for overnight observation tomorrow. The hemotologist is reffering us to infectious disease? I have no idea what is going on, all I want is some answers. Now would be nice.....=) She said that it didn't sound like she needed to see him. All I know is something is wrong and I want to know what it is.
