ABOUT THIS BOOK

Join our young baker (and her little dog!) as they travel the entire 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 theWorld, two-time Caldecott Honor artist 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. Includes a map of the U.S.A.—and a recipe for cherry pie, of course!
