I look forward to reading it with my son.
Thanks for the recommendation. I agree that some ABC books can be deadly boring. I agree! I bought this book for my son and I found it very clever that the ABC words actually told a story.

This meant it was very easy for our 5 year old daughter to pick apples from the lower branches. So if you go with young children, you might want to see if you can find an orchard that has at least some dwarf apple trees. When we got home we made an apple pie of course!

Nov 20, Jean rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens-picturebooks , favorites , best-of Just when I was thinking, "who really needs another alphabet book? I picked up this delightful read! A stalwart review of the letters of the alphabet accentuates a gleeful plot line--with both simple text and illustration each adding to the fun--about one character's dogged determination to get some apple pie!
An impressive picture book and quite a lot of fun. Dec 13, Kathryn rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens-picture-books. What a fun, inventive addition to ABC books. I love how each letter helped tell the story of the little dog's attempts to eat an apple pie.

Nice change of pace from each letter simply describing an object, for example. The illustrations are cute as can be!

Apple Pie ABC
Perfectly captures a dog's point of view. Oct 09, Alyson Kid Lit Frenzy rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in , picture-book , abc-counting-books , apples. Fun twist on apple pies and ABC's.

A.B.C. of the apple pie
Murray incorporates unexpected action words and an original underlying story of a sprightly black-and-white dog driven to bad behavior by a strong pastry craving. Printed on thick cream-colored paper with a limited palette of blues, reds, and yellows, the monochromatic illustrations resemble linocut prints. Bold uppercase alphabet letters anchor each page. Response to Two Professional Reviews: I agree with both reviews that the book has a very good storyline. Especially considering many alphabet books give words in a way that does not tell a story as this one does.
Both reviews seem to like the illustrations as well, which are very bright and inviting. Evaluation of Literary Elements: The silly, but realistic dog in this book gives the book a humorous tone.
Asking Kindergarteners what they think may happen next as the owner bakes the pie, or when the dog nears the table prior to pulling at the tablecloth would likely lead students to guess what happens next. As this is an alphabet book, it could also be expanded upon with further work on letters. Sep 21, Ashton Miller rated it it was amazing. Brief Book Summary: The book goes through the alphabet while telling a story of a dog wanting to eat the apple pie that he sees. In the end, the dog ends up getting the pie and is satisfied. Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly A long-eared dog with a passing resemblance to early versions of Snoopy longs for his young owner's irresistible apple pie in this ABC book.
Red and white letters, reminiscent of toy wood blocks, appear on each page, as the girl happily "bake it," then "dish it out. The grainy, retro-style artwork gives the book a deliciously vintage feel, and readers will be glad that perseverance and pie! The colors and letters really stand out on the pages, which caught my attention immediately. Evaluation of Literary Elements: The table that holds the apple pie is on vertical legs, which implies excitement when the dog tries to get the pie.
The dog is on the ground and he feels sad because what he wants is high up, which is the pie. At the end, when the apple pie is falling off the table, it is falling diagonally, indicating motion. The background is light, which allows the letters in the alphabet to pop out at the reader and it makes for a safer feel.
Consideration of Instructional Application: In my classroom, a mini lesson could be having my students place magnetic letters in order on the whiteboard to familiarize themselves with the alphabet. After the read aloud, I would have them come up with words that start with each letter of the alphabet, just like the story did. I could also connect my lesson to math and have my students count how many letters are in the alphabet. Nov 06, Alyssa Clark rated it it was amazing Shelves: alphabet-books. I think this book is appropriate for preschool and kindergarten. In this book, a dog is very eager to get a taste of his owner's freshly baked apple pie.
The alphabet takes the reader on a journey of this dog's desire for the apple pie. After the pie is baked and cooling, the dog tries to have a taste, but is kicked out; however, he never gives up.
I think this book is really cute. Even though there aren't a lot of word 1. Even though there aren't a lot of words, the vocabulary is rich and there is an exciting story line. I think kids will really like it and will root for the dog to get a bite of that apple pie. Once again, I could use this book to teach the alphabet, but I think there is more to it.

I could use this book to talk about sequencing of events. I would tell the kids first the girl baked the pie. Then, she let it cool. After, she dished it out. I would write down first, second, and third with the corresponding words. I would then have students try their own examples and have them share.
