How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman


In this fiction picture book, How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, Marjorie Priceman takes you on a world-wide adventure in order to make an exquisite apple pie. In the story, a girl wants to make an apple pie. Easy, go down to the market with your recipe and pick up the items needed. But, what if the market is closed? You pack a suitcase and begin your traveling on board a boat to Europe with your shopping list and pick up the items necessary, of course! Stopping in Italy, France, Sri Lanka, England, Jamaica, and Vermont as they will provide the best ingredients.

What a terrific book to take your students around the world and remind them of how global trade benefits them in their visits to their local grocery store. After reading the story, I would have a discussion of where our food comes from. We may not receive our eggs from the chickens in France; however, they did travel from somewhere to arrive on the markets shelf.


In addition, Ramona Recommends Free Picture Book Resource List places this book to use in Reading & Writing as a mentor text for teaching a Sequence of Events. Assisting the required anchor standard - CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details and well-structured event sequences. Which supports 4th & 5th Grade Writing ELA Standards:

W.4.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
W.4.3a Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally
W.4.3c Use a variety of transitional words and phrases to manage the sequence of events.
W.4.3e Provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events.
