Book Description

9 Sep 1996 Dragonfly Books
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and Fun 5 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a quick read if you want it to be. It can also provoke many more conversations with the children about different people and places around the world, while always maintaining a purpose that is familiar to them - the making of an apple pie! It is really a very funny book for children and adults alike. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! 24 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book, and more to the point, my 3 year old son also loves it! It combines three of my favourite things, cooking, food and travelling. A good read and a fun way of introducing the concept of countries to little ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars or How To Inspire and Enlighten Children About the World! 22 Dec 1999
By Dawn Woolcott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A beautifully illustrated book that will provide entertainment as well as many learning opportunities as you travel the world in search of the ingredients necessary to bake an apple pie. Children learn that food does not come from the grocery store - it has to be grown, harvested, milled, and prepared before it arrives magically on the dinner table. Your children may come to a new appreciation for the things normally taken for granted, and learn valuable geography lessons in the process. Maps and suggestions for an apple tasting party are included. I love this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful story about the World and Food! 23 Aug 2002
By Erin O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World" is a truly delightful book. A young lady attempts to make an apple pie only to discover that her neighborhood grocery store is closed. She then goes home packs a bag and takes her readers on a globe trotting journey to gather the necessary ingredients. She takes her readers to far corners of the globe to gather fresh spices, seawater to make salt, and always-fresh apples.
This is a wonderful story to share with a young child. It will help to expose young children to global interest and how food arrives in their own homes. The book also includes a map to help readers find where they have been taken on their journey. A wonderful story for adults and children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm Hmmm Good 23 Dec 1999
By M. Luke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My five year old, my wife, and I loved the story. The plot was zany enough to catch my child's attention. Good wholesome reading and eating. If you read it, make sure you have apple pie (and ice cream if you wish) ready.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun way to learn and be entertained 22 Dec 1999
By Dawn Woolcott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This fun book teaches children that food doesn't just magically come from the grocery store - it has to be grown, gathered, or made by someone. As the girl in the story learns, food we use daily comes from all over the world. She learns a valuable geography lesson as well as she travels the world to gather the ingredients for making apple pie. With beautiful color illustrations, maps, and ideas for an apple tasting party, this book is a treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars very interesting and enlightening way of looking at a recipe 17 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My 3-year old daughter was so captivated by this book that she regularly wants to "make an apple pie". Whenever we go to the beach, she is sure to fill her "jar" with salty seawater. And she tells others about the "kurundu tree" where cinnamon comes from. (This was new to me also!) Every time we go to the library, she asks the librarian herself if the Apple Pie book is in. I'm giving it to her for Christmas. She loves it!
