"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.

" ARC supplied by publisher via Edelweiss " said.

" Love the preface--ample warning that this is historical fiction. Also perfect match-up of language and art choice. " said.

" While the tale is entertaining, I would hope that kids who read it would know it was pure fiction. " said.

" Feels like it takes to many liberties with history, even for historical fiction. Hard to believe her life would have been that perfect.From advanced reader copy. " said.

" A fictional story about Amelia Simmons, author of the first American cookbook. " said.

" Charming story, and the illustrations add to it, with the style reflecting the time period and the faces (especially the expressions of the children) and small details adding pieces to the story. " said.

" What a remarkable story! I would definitely recommend this book to young readers, as it really shows (in my opinion) that you don't have to be an adult to make a tremendous difference. " said.
