Amelia Bedelia's First Apple Pie

A fun story to match up with making an apple pie!

Parish, Herman.
Amelia Bedelia's First Apple Pie.
November 2010.
Review copy provided courtesy of publisher.

Amelia Bedelia spends the day with grandparents enjoying all the different fall activities that there are to experience. When Grandma catches Amelia and her grandfather with nothing to do, she sends them in search of Granny Smith... just what they need to make a pie. It's clearly Amelia's first experience visiting a farmer's market and helping out in the kitchen, as everything direction that is given to Amelia is comprehended in the most simplistic form (a sprinkle of flour and Amelia literally sprinkles the flour all over herself and Grandma), yet it's certainly an adventure that will have readers chuckling and begging to make a pie of their own.

Learning/Reading Activity:
  • After reading the story, make an apple pie of your own with your child using the recipe included on the last page of the book!

I love these new Amelia Bedelia books! I was skeptical at first, but I think they're actually every bit as good as the original series. Thanks for the recommendation!
