Overview

Fancy a slice of cherry pie? Let's get started. . . . What, no bowl? No pie pan? No pot holders?

Join our young baker (and her little dog!) as they travel the United States—from New Hampshire to Hawaii, from Alaska to Texas—in search of the coal, cotton, clay, and granite they need to create all their baking tools.

In a companion to her bestselling How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, two-time Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman takes us on a round-the-U.S.A. journey by riverboat, taxi, train, and plane in a culinary adventure—and a playful celebration of America's natural resources.

A wee bit long but super cool. A girl travels aroung the USA to gather everything she needs to make a cherry pie, something special comes from each state.

This book has an apple pie recipe at the beginning and sets you in the setting of needing to make the pie from scratch. Like needing to make the stove, etc. The girl and her dog take you on a journey across the USA trying to get all the ingridiants for doing this. There are maps that show where the stuff has been found and where the journey bagan to where it ended.
