" Libraries should consider purchasing multiple copies since every preschool and primary-grade teacher in town will want a copy to read." --(starred) "Booklist."

From the Inside Flap

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.

By A Customer on 5 Aug. 1998
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

because we got a lesson in geography, hospitality, and industry we won't forget! My 4 year old and 6 year old loved this book with its colorful pictures and hilarious plot. Of course we did some baking after we finished the book!

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 I'm glad it wasn't at the library 17 Mar. 2016
By Jessica Atwater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was recommended for my daughter's homeschool curriculum, and it wasn't available at our local library. I had no idea how much our family was going to enjoy this charming story. The intrepid protagonist wants to bake an apple pie, but the market is closed. So she sets off a journey around the world to gather all the best quality ingredients for the perfect apple pie. The illustrations are charming and contain a wealth of details to be noticed in numerous re-readings. The story is told both well and simply, and the twist on the last page is the stuff great picture books are made of.

The recipe for apple pie at the end of the book is simple and delicious, and it makes use of all the ingredients gathered in the story.

We used the story for a mapping lesson as well charted the protagonist's journey on our world map on the wall. We used it for a cooking lesson. We used it for a science lesson (how are sugar and butter made, and how is salt retrieved from sea water.) We used it to have fun story time together, and that was the best of all.

Now I am glad the library didn't have it. Having purchased it, I anticipate my family enjoying it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story is great, the artwork makes it even better 9 Jun. 2014
By A. Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great story, and not for kids alone! My husband and I like this story (and the others by the same author) just as much as the kids like it! It is whimsically well written, and the illustrations are fantastic! This book has been read so many times, we are on our third copy of the book! HIghly recommended, this is a family favorite, and we dearly love our books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great "Five in a Row" curricula book! 3 Jan. 2014
By nancy chaddick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our daughter homeschools and for kindergarten/first grade she uses "Five in a Row" curriculum. This is one of the books in that curricula - and they read it every school day for 5 days and then do an acitivity that goes along with it. This one tells you where you go around the world to find the ingredients - so you have geography lessons, reading lessons, math lessons with the ingredients - and can even make the pie as a project! Great book for 4-6 year olds.
5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite 25 Oct. 2016
By Shawndra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We never get sick of this book! It's lovely. You can do so much with it: find the states/countries mentioned on a map, make an apple pie, do the actions described in the book, etc.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! 31 Dec. 2013
By Reese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this little activity book - I especially like how it tells you to call friends over to share in your pie. Try it out with your kids! We were surprised how many of our friends dropped what they were doing and came over for some warm apple pie. My son loved it! We used a globe while we read the book to show where we were going as well. A great lesson in geography for little people while being fun as well!
