Weekly Read . . .

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.

*THIS – on my summer bucket list. *Update*  I’m not the only one!

Love that book! Last year I wanted to take a “field trip” in the fall to an apple orchard to learn and pick and make cider.(it didn’t happen:( Maybe this year,ya know cuz I don’t have anything going on this fall!:) Good book idea for that:) That outdoor space is gorgeous! I am so cynical about outside stuff in Seattle. My first thought was, too bad the ground would still be wet and icky and ruin the cushions(you know from the rain we just had even though it’s summer) and I would have to take those cute hanging wicker basket lights down because they would get trashed from all the rain;) I guess I need to see the glass half full somehow:)

That sounds like such a fun field trip!! My entire childhood was spent in orchards and the thought of my kids not knowing how to make cider is horrifying.
