An Otis Cookie Summer Reading List

Happy summer break! These days we can’t think of anything but cannonballs in the pool, melted ice cream cone covered arms, picnic perfect sunny days, and summer reading lists. We’ve put together a delightful, fun list of children’s books that you can read along with your child, and yes, there is a sweet theme to it. Cookies! Head to your local public library and check out these adorably sweet titles, some classics and some that are new and noteworthy.

As a reward for getting to the reading list finish line, why not bake up some easy-made goodies from the baking book listed below? Or, if you’re not feeling like cranking on the oven during this summer heat (like the majority of us), we have you covered with a whole line of delicious little rewards, all made without the funky stuff.
