I like this book for two reasons. First, I like the style of the book. It explains the seasons but doesn’t present it as a scientific, informational text. Through using a fictional narrative story, the author is able to take the reader through the seasons by talking about the apple tree and how important it is to the family. Secondly, I like the pace of the book. It is kind of slow paced and gives the book a relaxing feel as the reader travels through the seasons of the year. Within each season, the author explains how the birds are growing and the flowers are going through many stages before the next season arrives. The big idea of this book is to show the growth and development of the apple tree and explain other aspects of the four seasons. ( )

This story is a simple book about the life cycle of an apple tree and how the family in the book grows the apples and then uses them to make a pie.
I love this book because it is very easy for children to understand and relate too. I used it in my classroom last year when we made applesauce and I plan to do the same this year.
This book is a great one for any child because it even includes scientific information in the back that older children could use. Works great for apple or fall theme.

This book sort of predates all the life cycle books that have been printed today, that tell how peanut butter comes into being from a peanut plant or ice cream comes from a cow giving milk. It contains a recie for apple pie at the end as well as some a rundown on bees pollinating plants. Good book for younger readers. ( )

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.
