How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman
Publisher description: 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.

School@Home Lesson Plan
"My turn to teach for our preschool coop. I chose the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World" by Marjorie Priceman. While putting together my lesson plan for the book I had a lot of fun and thought I would share my ideas. This was geared for 4 years olds but could easily be adapted from 3-7 I think."
