Why does putting a couple pieces of bread in a sealed container of cookies keep the cookies soft while the bread goes hard?

Nana brought us soft chocolate chip cookies and there was hard bread in the tupper ware. She explained that it kept the cookies soft. WHY.
Why do the cookies have a stronger hold on their moisture than the bread? Couldn't the bread suck out the cookies moisture? Why dont they suck out each others moisture equally? Who thought of this? How? If I put english muffins in there, what will happen?
