Alfie loves his mommy's cookies, and he wants one more than anything! But grabbing for one, fishing for one, and dressing up as a cookie inspector don't seem to work. His mommy says there is a better way. What is it?

The littlest of readers will learn proper manners with Alfie as his mommy teaches him to say the magic words.

Safe for all ages.
