Today I'm happy to announce the release of my newest picture book, Applesauce Day!
The story is based on my family's applesauce-making tradition, which goes back generations. It was amazing to watch it come to life with Talitha Shipman's exuberant, colorful art. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out, and hope you will enjoy it as well!
From the publisher: Maria and her family visit an apple orchard and pick apples. Then it's time to turn the apples into applesauce! Every year they use the special pot that has been in the family for generations to make applesauce. First they wash the apples. Then Grandma cuts them into quarters. Follow each step in the process as everyone helps to make delicious applesauce!
