G. Gibbons writes a stunning look into the subject of apples. This informational look at many things apples introduces concepts such as: the first American colonists and Native Americans, Johnny Appleseed, varieties of apples, how to bake an apple pie, parts of an apple, harvest, things one can do with apples, and many more. Some new vocabulary is introduced in this book as well including: the parts of the apple and words such as pollination and dormant.

I think this is a stunning book that covers a large subject very well. The illustrations and visuals are charming and hold up to the text perfectly.
For ages: 5-8.
