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!

I loved this book for its combined fact and fantasy. Yes, you could get an egg from France, however you probably wouldn't bring it along on your world travels so that you could have a fresh egg. Now imagine the milk. Yes, you can get cinnamon in Sri Lanka, but an elephant probably wouldn't hoist you above the leopard sleeping at the base of the kurundu tree so you could get the tree's bark. The book contains a pie recipe and guidelines for an apple-tasting party.

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.
