Bakers dozen

Storyboard Text

  • And never was the shop busier than in the days before December 6, when the Dutch celebrate Saint Nicholas Day.
  • That night, the baker had a dream. He was a boy again, one in a crowd of happy children. And there in the midst of them was Saint Nicholas himself.
  • No matter how many presents Nicholas passed out, there were always more to give
  • I asked for a dozen. You have given me only twelve.
  • One Saint Nicholas Day morning, the baker was just ready for business, when the door of his shop flew open.
  • In great excitement, Van Amsterdam counted out twelve cookies—
  • In fact, Van Amsterdam grew so wealthy that the other bakers in town began doing the same.
  • She turned to go, but stopped at the door.
  • Van Amsterdam! However honest you may be, your heart is small and your fist is tight. Fall again, mount again, learn how to count again!
  • Finally, on the day before Saint Nicholas Day, not one customer came to Van Amsterdam’s shop.
  • At day’s end, the baker sat alone, staring at his unsold Saint Nicholas cookies.
  • Then Nicholas handed a gift to Van Amsterdam. It was one of the baker’s own Saint Nicholas cookies!
  • In this shop, from now on, a dozen is thirteen.
  • and one more.
