Cookie Monster
Kalil, age 6


When I walk into the house  
And smell cookies,  
I go to the kitchen  
To look in the oven.  

There I see  
Mom’s double chocolate chip,   
Lemon crinkles, Snickerdoodles,  
All gluten free. 

When I bite into one,  
It crumbles into my mouth  
And tastes delicious and warm.  
No one likes cold cookies.  

– Charlie (Charlotte), age 8
