Do pies grow on trees? Join a father and child as they watch over their backyard cherry tree--and all the colorful living things surrounding it--throughout the seasons. At the end of the summer, they harvest the cherries together and make a delicious pie for the whole family to enjoy.
This stunning new book from bestselling author Lois Ehlert features color concepts, backyard natural history, vibrant collage illustrations, and, best of all, a recipe for making cherry pie. Yum!

Okay seems like Lois Ehlert is becoming one of my children's favorite authors. Every time we go to the library one of them checks out a book by her. lol... Not that I'm complaining! I'm really glad they enjoy her books as much as they do. I think Ehlert is a great children's author and I love her books as much as the kiddies do. They are fun and easy for the kids to read.

Pie in the sky is great for those of all ages. It shows the innocents of a child on how they think and learn. As grown ups we often forget the pricelessness of being a youngster ourselves. I'll never forget that my sister wanted to be an apple tree when she grew up. Well she's all grown up but I still don't see any apples hanging from her. LMAO Sorry issy you knows I love ya but that was just to darn funny.... All those crazy questions we asked our parents growing up and you know a child just knows everything or so they seem to think they do. Like in this story the little boy thinks pies is going to grow from the cherry tree. Everyday the boy looks at the tree and sees different shapes and colors on the tree, all types of insects and birds but never any pie. An one day when the cherries ripened his daddy finally says lets make a pie.
