“Spot,” said Fawn, looking out the kitchen window. “Look how sunny it is today.”
“It looks sunny,” said Spot. “However, don’t let the sun fool you. It is very cold outside today.”
“How cold?” asked Fawn.
“Minus eighteen degrees,” said Spot, looking at the thermometer that was by the window.
“Oh,” said Fawn. “That is cold. That is too bad too because it looks so nice outside. I wanted to go tobogganing today.”
“Believe me,” said Spot. “You would definitely want to stay indoors today. Tell you what, why don’t we do something fun today?”
“Like what?” asked Fawn.
“Well,” said Spot. “We could do some baking.”
“I know,” said Fawn. “Why don’t we bake some cookies in the shape of a sun and then we could decorate them?”
“That is a great idea,” said Spot.
“And,” said Fawn. “We could call them our sunshine cookies.”
Fawn and Spot spent the rest of the afternoon baking sunshine cookies and just as they finished the last one, Ricky Hansen came into the barn.
“Something smells really good,” said Ricky.
“It’s our sunshine cookies,” said Fawn, taking one off the cookie tray and handing it to Ricky.
“Umm,” said Ricky, trying the cookie. “It is really good and it even warms my tummy too.”
“That’s why we call it the sunshine cookie,” said Fawn.
