How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World

Last year we went through the alphabet choosing a different theme for each letter, reading books and doing other fun crafts and activities based on that letter. For A, our theme was Apple and now that Charlotte’s in Kindergarten…what do you know, Apple is the word for the letter “A” again. So I checked out some of our favorites from last year, and found a new favorite as well…

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman. I loved this book! When the market is closed the only thing left to do is go around the world to gather all the ingredients needed to make an apple pie–all the way from Sri Lanka to get cinnamon from the bark of the native kurundu tree, to Vermont for apples. There’s also a recipe for apple pie at the end of the book.

And of course, we made an apple pie too! I think it has to be the ugliest apple pie I’ve ever seen…but it was yummy! My super secret apple pie recipe can be found…on the back of the Trader Joe’s Pie Crust box.
