"Best Mud Pie" written by Lin Quinn, and illustrated by Ronnie Rooney. Children's Press, "A Rookie Reader", Grolier, 2001.
In this, her first book, Lin Quinn has a winner. She has fashioned a cute story that hangs together as "Roberto" concocts a mud pie from "... sandy dirt and sticky dirt" and other interesting ingredients, including pinecones and sticks! All these ingredients are colorfully and faithfully illustrated, showing Roberto in a star-studded outfit, along with a white dog with one black eye patch. Each cooking utensil is a different color, not just humdrum gray aluminum. Ronnie Rooney's illustrations bring the story to life. Success is in the eating, Roberto's mud pie goes over with Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa. This book is a "Rookie Reader", so the last page is a word list of 56 words that the young reader gets to use.
This book is nicely done and will provide many hours of reading enjoyment and learning.
Simple text engages the students in a mud pie making experience they are sure to relate to. I used it with my first grade ELL students and they loved it!
