Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Libraries should consider purchasing multiple copies since every preschool and primary-grade teacher in town will want a copy to read."—(starred) Booklist.  
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Singling out the "offbeat nostalgia" of the "energetic" watercolors in this tale of a round-the-world grocery trip, PW called Priceman "a master of whimsy." Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Enjoy a deliciously silly recipe for apple pie that takes the reader around the globe to gather ingredients, including stowing away on a banana boat to Jamaica for the sweetest sugar cane, apple picking in Vermont, and a stop in Italy for the finest semolina wheat. Contains lots of tongue-in-cheek humor and delightful watercolor art. 1996 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-In this whimsical, geographical shopping journey, a young baker thinks of how to proceed if the market is closed. She directs readers, via various modes of transportation, to gather seminola wheat in Italy, a chicken for its egg in France, bark from the kurundu cinnamon tree in Sri Lanka, a cow for butter in England, salt water and sugar cane in Jamaica, and apples in Vermont. Processing the worldly ingredients is quickly handled, a pie is baked, and friends are invited to share. A look around the table reveals children from all of the countries in which the foods have been found. A recipe for apple pie appears on the last page. The brightly colored pictures are fanciful, revealing cheerful, busy people working in towns, fields, and forests of the various countries. The purposeful girl in a green pinafore collects her ingredients with enthusiasm and good cheer. A lighthearted, pleasurable selection.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME

    Excellent!

    One of my favorite children's books. How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World is a whimsical introduction to geography and transportation. From a preK- K teacher's point of view, it's a great companion to social studies curriculum for geography/ cultures/ and economics (how food gets to market). Science lessons on modes of transportation and change in form (grinding wheat to make flour, mixing single ingredients to create something different) are made fun. Of course, there's always the math and science involved in baking an apple pie!

    How To Make An Apple Pie and See The World

    This book is about a girl that wants to make an apple pie. The book is funny. I think that it is a really good book. I think that it's not a kiddish book or for young children. I like the book because it tells about how you make an apple pie and also how you can see the world in 1 day. The young girl visits different places like Vermont to get ingredients to make her apple pie.

    A book and a recipe

    My daughter and I read this fascinating book and it was so good. Afterwards, we went to the gocery store and came home and made an apple pie using the recipe.
