Apples are an amazing fruit. There are all different kinds of apples and different ways they can be incorporated into our favorite foods. This book takes you through the steps of growing apples then all the different ways they are used. This book would be better for a younger age just learning about this type of subject. The book gives a lot of information on apples in an easy way for children to understand.

APPLES tells of the process of growing apples, how they are pollinated, and how they are harvested. It describes the process for making apple juice and cider and what apples are used in. The "More About Apples" at the end of the book gives more details and points of interest about apples, including sayings withe "apple" in it and what it means. On the last page there are pictures and labels of the different types of apples. The pictures are beautiful and help the story of apples come alive. It is simple and should be used for younger children. It can be a great starter book for learning about apples and then going into activities such as apple prints, tasting different apples, and graphing the students favorite kind of apple. ( )

This was a great nonfiction book. It gave so much information on apples and how they come to be, but did so in a way that all students can understand. This would be a great book to read before a field trip to the apple orchard. It would also be a great to use when talking about pollination and what happens after a fruit plant is pollinated. I would really like to use this book in a future classroom. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689830246, Hardcover)


Crunchy and tasty, sweet and tart, in colorful shades of red, yellow, and green -- sometimes all three -- everyone loves apples! In this lively and vibrant book, young readers will learn how apples grow, from the planting of a tree, to the pollination of buds by bees, and on to the harvest. And then comes the fun part as apples are used to tease the taste buds in so many ways -- in pies and strudel, in cider and applesauce, but most of all, in that one simple crunch when one bites into an apple's crisp sweetness. Ken Robbins's hand-colored photographs will make you want to take a bite yourself!
