Overview

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman

Illus. in full color. An apple pie is easy to make...if the market is open. But if the market is closed, the world becomes your grocery store. This deliciously silly recipe for apple pie takes readers around the globe to gather ingredients. First hop a steamboat to Italy for the finest semolina wheat. Then hitch a ride to England and hijack a cow for the freshest possible milk. And, oh yes! Don't forget to go apple picking in Vermont! A simple recipe for apple pie is included.

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!

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.

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.

A wonderful addition to any family library. One of our favorite F.I.A.R (Five In A Row) books as well Ü. Happy Rowing!
