HOW TO MAKE A CHERRY PIE AND SEE THE U.S.A. by Marjorie Priceman, Author/Illustrator

What would our young, creative baker from How to Make an Apple Pie and See The World, do if she wants to bake a cherry pie but is missing the tools to do it?  The store may be closed, but not her ingenuity.  In this delightful, thought-provoking tale, she takes us on a colorful trip through the U.S.A. Her journey provides an experience for readers where they will discover where the raw materials come from to make a baking pan, rolling pin, potholders and measuring cup, etc.; items often taken for granted.  Each illustration, including the end pages, are as enticing as the sight of a just-baked cherry pie.  Each page includes an interesting fact about a state or area within the U.S. This book will create interesting discussions with children and is a wonderful addition to pair with How to Make an Apple Pie and See The World. Author and Illustrator is a two-time Caldecott Honor Artist. Recommended.
