From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3-In this whimsical, geographical shopping journey, a young baker thinks of how to proceed if the market is closed. She directs readers, via various modes of transportation, to gather seminola wheat in Italy, a chicken (for its egg) in France, bark from the kurundu (cinnamon) tree in Sri Lanka, a cow (for butter) in England, salt water and sugar cane in Jamaica, and apples in Vermont. Processing the worldly ingredients is quickly handled, a pie is baked, and friends are invited to share. A look around the table reveals children from all of the countries in which the foods have been found. A recipe for apple pie appears on the last page. The brightly colored pictures are fanciful, revealing cheerful, busy people working in towns, fields, and forests of the various countries. The purposeful girl in a green pinafore collects her ingredients with enthusiasm and good cheer. A lighthearted, pleasurable selection.

The recipe for apple pie at the end of the book is simple and delicious, and it makes use of all the ingredients gathered in the story.
We used the story for a mapping lesson as well charted the protagonist's journey on our world map on the wall. We used it for a cooking lesson. We used it for a science lesson (how are sugar and butter made, and how is salt retrieved from sea water.) We used it to have fun story time together, and that was the best of all.
Now I am glad the library didn't have it. Having purchased it, I anticipate my family enjoying it for years to come.
My three year old grandson loves this book and he also loves to make apple pie -- next we'll have to see the world together--maybe starting next year!
