The Apple Cake

A rich and beautiful story, this one. An old lady sets off to market to buy some apples for her cake, taking a basket of plums to trade along the way. As she travels, she meets one person after another to whom she gives what she has brought and from whom she receives a gift in return. At last, it is too late to reach the market – besides she no longer has the plums to trade! How she comes to have apples for her cake is a story that will inspire warm faith in the goodness of the world. A warming, inspiring story for ages 5-8. Includes a recipe for a delicious apple cake!
