This week I’m recommending How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, by Marjorie Priceman. The heroine wants to make an apple pie and journeys around the world to collect ingredients when she finds the market closed. The illustrations are charming, and it’s been such fun to discuss different countries and the origins of our food. As a lifelong Washingtonian – I *am* offended that they suggest Vermont apples . . . but I overheard the girls building a boat to get to Sri Lanka during playtime . . . so we’ll call it even.
Other “reads” . . .
*It’s Eric Carle’s birthday today! My youngest is obsessed with Brown Bear, Brown Bear, so we might have to celebrate. This project is a contender. (Dig into the entire site if you love art projects and experiments with your kids!)
*Maybe I’ve lived in Everett a little too long, but I can’t wait to stencil some moss graffiti onto our garden shed.
