Title: How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World
Author: Marjorie Priceman
Major Themes: Apple Pie, World Geography, Food
Synopsis: If the market is closed when you want to make an apple pie, you will have to travel the world to collect the needed ingredients.
Making an apple pie is simple. You just go to the market and get the ingredients, and put them together. But—what if the market is closed? Well, then you must travel the world to find the very best ingredients!
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World is a delightful introduction to world geography as well as food. My 6-year-old loves the story; there are humorous details sprinkled throughout. Of course, being boys who love to eat, my boys also like the thought of the apple pie. The recipe included at the end of the book would make that easy—if your market is open! If it isn’t, you may just have to go on a world tour first.
