Reading Compare and Contrast Activity

In the story Cook-A-Doodle-Do, by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens, Crummel, a rooster, wants to make strawberry shortcake (a plain cake with strawberries and whipped cream on top).  Other animal friends try to help and cause lots of trouble.  After several tries, they finally get it right. Compare and contrast their strawberry recipe to the one you just prepared. What things are alike?  What was different?  Did your team have trouble, like the characters in the book, or did it go smoothly?
