What Wee Read
Tiny Pie by Mark Bailey and Michael Oatman and illustrated by Edward Hemingway
After taking our kids apple picking this weekend, they couldn’t wait to read this sweet little story about making tiny apple pie. Ellie the Elephant is bummed that she can’t be part of her parents’ grown-up party. Just when she’s feeling too small to do anything, Ellie discovers mice hosting a cooking show (featuring Tiny Pie) behind her kitchen wall. She finds out that even the tiniest hands, noses and mouths can do big things. At the end, there’s a bonus Tiny Pie recipe from Alice Waters for little bakers.
