If you don't have all of the materials to make a cherry pie, this gal will tell you how and where in the US you can get them....but you'll have to travel through almost every state along the way!

This book has an apple pie recipe at the beginning and sets you in the setting of needing to make the pie from scratch. Like needing to make the stove, etc. The girl and her dog take you on a journey across the USA trying to get all the ingridiants for doing this. There are maps that show where the stuff has been found and where the journey bagan to where it ended. ( )

IN THIS EXUBERANT companion story to How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, our young baker sets her sights on a cherry pie. She heads off on a round-the-U.S.A. journey to find all the materials she needs to stock her kitchen: New Mexico for clay (mixing bowl), Washington for wood (rolling pin), Hawaii for sand (sand? to make the glass for her measuring cup, of course). In joyful art filled with small vignettes and sly humor, two-time Caldecott Honor winner Marjorie Priceman takes us on a cross country journey by riverboat, taxi, bus, train, plane—all in search of the natural resources of our country. Includes a brightly painted endpaper map of the U.S.A.—and a recipe for cherry pie, of course!

Since the Cook Shop is closed, the reader is led around the United States to gather coal, cotton, granite, and other natural resources needed to make the utensils for preparing a cherry pie.
