    Block print illustrations and rhyming text make for a nice read-aloud at Thanksgiving time. Goody O'Grumpity makes a pie that is cherished by children who come from far and wide.

    Written by Carol Ryrie Brink, illustrated by Ashley Wolff, published by North South Books, copyright year 1996. Summary: Based on a 1937 poem, a pilgrim who bakes a cake and all the children come to partake of it. Response: This is a cute way to introduce early American history and the pilgrims. Gives some good pictures of the way people lived and dressed during colonial times. I like that it gives a recipe for the spice cake at the end. That would be a really fun project. Possible Units: Colonial America. Thanksgiving.

    Crisp and clear illustrations infuse a warming spice laden story about baking a cake. It comes complete with a recipe to make the very same! Subliminally (mostly visually) it is an introduction to early American history too. Our 2 & 4 year olds have loved it. Again. Again.

    This would be a good addition to a Thanksgiving unit. It's a poem about a pilgrim woman who is famous for her spice cake. People come from all through the town when they smell it. The illustrations are the winning element here: colored block prints give us a feel for the lives of the colonists.

    The wonderful smells lead all the children to Goody O'Grumpity's house. Maybe more than the smells, though, are Goody's giving ways. The recipe for the cake is at the end and we want to try it.
