What would happen if a baker had a baby that wouldn’t stop crying? This book is a tale about a woman baker that baked all day, but saved her cinnamon bread for the end of the day so the bakery would smell delightful. She marries and has a baby that will not stop crying. The mother and father do everything they can think of, until one day the baker decides to go to the bakery and bake her delicious breads. When she finally gets to the cinnamon bread the baby is happy. I thought the story was charming.
