Description
Fancy a slice of cherry pie? Let's get started. . . . What, no bowl? No pie pan? No pot holders?
Join our young baker (and her little dog ) as they travel the United States from New Hampshire to Hawaii, from Alaska to Texas in search of the coal, cotton, clay, and granite they need to create all their baking tools.
In a companion to her bestselling How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, two-time Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman takes us on a round-the-U.S.A. journey by riverboat, taxi, train, and plane in a culinary adventure and a playful celebration of America's natural resources.
