Jennie Peck | 20 comments The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall
This book goes through the life cycle of an apple tree. It begins with a bare tree in winter and goes all the way through to the making of an apple pie. The illustrations tell the story as well as reading the words.

This book is perfect for a unit on apples. The there are so many concepts that can be linked to it. It goes through the seasons, life cycle, the illustrations are collage so students could create their own example as an art project. You could even do math and bake a pie.

Jennie Peck | 20 comments It's Pumpkin Time! by Zoe Hall
This book goes hand in hand with the Apple Pie Tree. It also does the life cycle of a pumpkin and the text is similar to the apple pie tree.

This book is also a great anchor book for your pumpkin theme. You can plant or grow pumpkins, paint pumpkins similar to the illustrations, label the parts of a pumpkin on a diagram etc.
