How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World

By Marjorie Priceman

Bake a delicious apple pie–and take a trip with this culinary global adventure! 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 picture book takes readers around the globe to gather ingredients for a delicious apple pie. 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.

This fun apples book can be used in speech therapy to address countries and their staple ingredients. It is also great for predicting and for targeting describing as well as for a variety of action verbs!
