What a fun story - a story of young girl who loves to cook and is asked to make a cake for the new president, George Washington. In Independence Cake, our young readers will thoroughly enjoy this tale of a young girl who wants to be busy with her hands and the great honor she is given to cook for the president. The illustrations were so fun and whimsical - just right for this story. This would be a great read aloud and very fun for 4th of July or cooking story times. Deborah Hopkinson has crafted a tale that you will not want to miss.
The story is not true but it is loosely based on a true female in history.
