During apple picking time we took this book along with us on our field trip to Carter Mountain Apple Orchard in Charlottesville, VA. We were embarking on our own little adventure and the kids were excited to go and pick their very own apples.

What was even more exciting was the apple pie recipe at the end of the book. My oldest had her mind set on using our picked apples to make this pie. And what a delicious pie it was! About a week after the trip we gathered around with the book and baked an apple pie from scratch. This was my first time making pie crust so I was a little concerned about how it would turn out but let me assure you there wasn’t a crumb left after we were done with it. It was delicious!

Since then I have been trying to bribe my husband to take some sales calls in Charlottesville and while he is there he can swing over and get us more apples. This was a really fun field trip and a really cool children’s read.
