ROCKIN' READS: Pie is for Sharing

By Stephanie Parsley Ledyard
Illustrated by Jason Chin
Neal Porter Book, Roaring Brook Press, 2018. Picture Book.

There are many things that come to mind when thinking of summer—and having a picnic and watching fireworks with family and friends are one of the things that come to my mind. This book celebrates the idea of a community getting together to have fun on a beach, having a picnic. There is pie to share (thus the title), trees to climb, ropes to jump, and fun to be had. This book celebrates all the things that make community celebrations enjoyable. Ledyard shares a story that will resonate with many who celebrate life with their friends and family.
