This short little book gives young children all they need to know about the life cycle of apples and apple trees. The book starts when the trees are in bloom and the bees are flying around.

There were great photos throughout this apple picture book. The letters are big with short sentences. The picture talked about types of apples, ways to eat apples, how apple trees grow, and where to find apples. A good read for kindergarten - second grade.

This is a great nonfiction book for young children. Bright, vibrant photographs cover the pages and simple facts are presented in a narrative-like way to help young children focus: "Limbs droop, heavy with ripe fruit. Some apples thud to the ground, then rot and become food for the growing tree." The book talks about how apple trees progress through the seasons, how we use apples, and a little apple history (John Chapman).

This is perfect for preschool-age children, especially in fall!

This was a fun, very information/factual book about... well, apples! The pictures are from real-life (so if you like very realistic photos, this book is for you). The information from the book includes a brief overview of the life of apples, different kinds of apples, and the different ways you can use them.

I really like the diversity of chldren in the photos. Not all of the children were white. There are some words that would need to be explained or discussed in this book. K-2 would not neccessarily know all of the words and what they were.

I love to use this book when we talk about apples. It is great for students see real pictures of how apples are used in a variety of ways. This is another book that I have a listening center and students love to listen to it and then draw their favorite part of the story!
Ahh! Love at first bite.

A good informational book on apples that shows the many uses of apples. It also taught the cycles the apples have to go through to get to their final destination.

This book provides vocabulary words about apples as well as a glossary in the back of the book to review these words. It also discusses the different types of apples and what they are used for.
