This book is great to learn information about the different types of apples. Also provides great history on were the apples originated from. If you're looking for a guide to an apple this, is it. ( )

In typical Gail Gibbons fashion, the top 3/4 of the page is illustration (sometimes with labels, such as the parts of the apple blossom: pollen, stamen, stigma), and the lower 1/4 is straightforward, informative text. There are "thousands of varieties" of apples, though only a dozen or so are included here; the final page includes some catch-all apple facts, some interesting and some practical (if you store you apples in a cool and dry place, they can last for months).

This book shows the full life cycle of the apple from planting to growing to what we can use them for.
