This book focuses on two sisters who have a tree in their yard that produces the best part of apple pie... the apples! They go through and describe all the parts of the tree throughout every season. In their tree live a pair of robins. The robins also get a part in this story. Many animals' live have a tiny (or large) part that revolves around this apple tree. The children pick the apples in autumn and then help their mom as she prepares the apple pie. It is a lovely story of seasons, animals, and family togetherness over a shared object. Personality development can be seen through the children and their tree. For ages: 3-7 Source: Pierce County Library system ( )

28 months - we read this one last year and I just found it for $1 at the thrift store just in time for apple picking season. This should be fun to pull out and read each fall and make a pie too! ( )

A simple nature story about an apple tree in winter, spring, summer, and fall. ``My sister and I have a tree that grows the best part of apple pie. Can you guess what that is? Apples!'' In winter, the tree is brown, but in spring, leaves grow and a robin nests in the branches. In the days that follow, buds, blossoms, bees, tiny apples, and mature fruit appear. In the final pages, the two girls (with help from adults) make and eat an apple pie. A recipe is included, as is information on how the bee pollinates the apple flower. Halpern uses soft greens, browns, and pinks in the cut- paper collages; careful shading, painting, and layering give the illustrations dimensionality, with the textured nest and marbled tree trunk especially effective. An appealing study for young children. (Picture book. 4-7)
-From bud to fruit, two children follow the cycle of an apple tree as it is nurtured through the seasons. The book incorporates the role of bees and the weather in the production of the fruit. Another use of the tree is shown, as a pair of robins build their nest and begin a family. The story ends with a nice, warm apple pie being taken from the oven. The large pictures and text are suitable for young children. The colorful, clear-cut illustrations use a paint and paper collage technique. An end note shows how bees pollinate the tree's flowers and offers a recipe for apple pie. Great for sharing with a group or one-on-one.
