About the Book
All about apples, from pollination to picking and eating.

“Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children’s writer-illustrator."—The Washington Post

★★★ THE REVIEWS ARE IN! ★★★


"With its cheerful, bright illustrations and clear, simple presentation, this title will be the perfect pick for the perennial fall apple-book requests."—School Library Journal

"Plenty of information appears in both words and images, including identification of the basic parts of the apple; some historical scenes of the apple in America ; and the apple's progress through the seasons . . . there is . . . plenty here for young botanists who may be encountering clearly explained words such as dormant and pollination for the first time."—Booklist
