From the author, about this book:

I made this book because in my work as a teacher and Children’s Librarian, I saw families searching for books with realistic pictures. Many toddlers, preschoolers and new readers prefer books with photos of the real world around them. Photographs of new and common experiences build literacy and teach vocabulary.

Bonus! Grandpa’s pie recipes are carefully tested with precision, and make delicious and beautiful pies. If you have a pie recipe question, you can Ask Grandpa by contact through this website.
