Former MA Legislator Kathleen Teahan Dishes on a
Classic Treat in Her New Book, The Cookie Loved
Round the World
(1888 PressRelease) Whitman, Mass.-based book
tells the real story of how the chocolate chip
cookie became a beloved icon during the Great
Depression. Whitman, Mass. A few simple
ingredients were all it took to create the
chocolate chip cookie, the quintessential
American treat that not only took hold of the
citizens of its birthplace, Whitman, Mass., but
the rest of the country before deliciously
expanding around the globe. In her new juvenile
historical fiction book, The Cookie Loved Round
the World The Story of the Chocolate Chip
Cookie, Kathleen Teahan tells the tale of how it
happened. As Teahan explains, it all began in
1937 in the midst of the Great Depression.
According to what Whitman residents have heard,
one fateful day in the kitchen of the Toll House
Restaurant, owner Ruth Wakefield was forced to
improvise when faced with a shortage of walnuts
needed to bake a Butter Do Drop cookie for a
wedding. As a substitute, Wakefield added chunks
of Nestlé semisweet chocolate to the cookie
dough. And an American legend was
born. Playfully illustrated by Larisa Hart, The
Cookie Loved Round the World shares the
mouth-watering results of Ruths experiment,
which quickly became the restaurants signature
cookie, her collaboration with Nestlé, and how
the dessert became the official cookie of
Massachusetts. But it is also a tale about hard
work, determination, and positivity.

During college, I had the privilege of working
at the Toll House Restaurant as a summer job and
saw firsthand the huge impact the little cookie
had on so many people, said Teahan. I hope The
Cookie Loved Round the World inspires youth to
follow their dreams, just as Ruth Wakefield kept
her vision alive when she transformed a common
butter cookie into an international icon loved
around the world. The Cookie Loved Round the
World is available through all major bookstores
and in ebook format, including on Amazon.com,
BarnesandNoble.com and http//www.SDPPublishingSol
utions.com. Teahan will donate a portion of the
proceeds from the books sales to fight world
hunger. About the Author Kathleen Teahan is a
