Description


A picnic, a beach, a pie cut into pieces and shared with good friends.
Pie is for sharing.
It starts off round, and you can slice it into as many pieces as you want. What else can be shared? A ball, of course. A tree? What about time?
Through the course of one memorable Fourth of July picnic, Stephanie Ledyard and Jason Chin take young readers through the ups and downs of sharing in this lovely picture book.

Praise For…


*"This isn't a flag-waving Fourth of July story, but it can be read as a gentle yet firm call for American readers to reflect on and embrace the ideal of pluralism. An aspirational vision in which inclusivity is as American as (apple) pie."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*"There’s an echo of Ruth Krauss in the sweetly quotidian take on sharing possibilities and of Liz Gar- ton Scanlon’s All the World (BCCB 10/09) in the jubilant and lyrical togetherness, with an added hat-tip to classic ways of celebrating America’s birthday with her twenty-first century residents."— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

*"This idyllic, joyously inclusive picture book takes an ordinary concept—sharing— and makes it extraordinary."—The Horn Book, starred review

*"The best part, though, is the positive, inclusive representation of a loving community sharing a celebration, fun, and, of course, pie."—Booklist, starred review

"Young readers will enjoy being a part of this halcyon summer day of family, friendship, and fun. Perfect for a holiday storytime or for everyday sharing."—School, Library Journal

Reading is magic. Not just in some metaphorical sense, but in the true sense that you will experience a new and stunning world in this highly original fantasy. An amazing book that will capture any bookworm. Reminiscent of Cornelia Funke's Inkheart. - Jessica
