The Apple Pie That Papa Baked by Lauren Thompson will appeal to young children who enjoy repetition. Reminiscent of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, The Apple Pie That Papa Baked repeats the actions of Papa, the apples, the tree and even the world as the girl considers everything that went into the pie Papa made for her.
The brown and black illustrations, sprinkled with the bright red of the apples are soothing and fun to explore. And by the time you finished reading the book, you may be craving a warm, sweet apple pie yourself!
Recommended for ages 18 months to 6 years.
