Casey, Dawn. Apple Cake: a Gratitude. Minneapolis, Minnesota: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, an imprint of The Quarto Group, 2019.
A lovely lyrical rhyming story for autumn giving thanks for hedges, flowers, rain and earth. For friends and family, gifts and food. And at the end, there’s a gluten-free recipe for apple cake. Gently illustrated with soft pastels and coloured pencils, this picture book is recommended as a read-aloud for children 4 to 7 years old.
