Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of the true delights in fall is to enjoy fresh delicious apples right from the tree. Young children will follow Annie as she harvests her apples and also uses them to make a variety of tasty items such as apple cider, applesauce, muffins, cakes and pies. Annie takes her apples and apple products to "The Big Apple" where she is part of a farmers market. Her produce, pies and the rest, are a big hit, and Annie sells it all. She then heads back home to share a contented evening with her cat and dog. Wellington has added information and lessons in many of the bright cheery pictures. One has apples arranged in groups from one to ten and that same arrangement is reproduced on the back cover, which provides an opportunity to practice counting;another page lists apple varieties. The beginning and end pages show fresh whole apples in the front and kids enjoying all the apples and apple products on the concluding page. The author has also provided recipes for applesauce, apple muffins and applesauce cakeā€”all of which will require adult supervision and involvement. 2001, Dutton, $14.99. Ages 4 to 8.

PreS-Gr 2-Each autumn, Annie picks her apples, and sorts and organizes them. Some she turns into applesauce, apple muffins, apple cake (recipes included), and cider. The best she saves to sell at the market. Happily, she sells everything and returns home to rest, read, and, of course, eat an apple. Charming and cheery, her story makes a great read-aloud. The illustrations seem to step right out of a coloring book with simple shapes, objects, and bright, crayon-box colors. Left-hand pages contain text framed by objects that reinforce the words; more detailed, full-page illustrations appear on the right. For example, road signs surround the sentence explaining that Annie drives to the city; the accompanying picture shows a bridge with a city skyline in the background. Cooking utensils surround the sentences describing how she makes applesauce and muffins, while on the right is an illustration of the young woman in the kitchen. All in all, this is a tasty complement to Zoe Hall's The Apple Pie Tree (Scholastic, 1996) and Anne Rockwell's Apples and Pumpkins (S & S, 1989).-Pamela K.

Kirkus Reviews
Annie owns and tends her own small apple orchard in this visually robust salute to a favorite fruit. Although constantly accompanied by her cheerful-looking dog and cat, Annie does all the work herself. She picks the ripe apples, then she sorts them by variety. In the next several pages, readers learn many of the tasty treats that can be derived from apples as she makes sweet cider, smooth applesauce, muffins, pies, and cakes. She saves the best-looking apples to take to the farmers market in the city. There, she sells the round beauties as well as some of the delicacies she has made from them. This is certainly not the most plot-driven story, but it has much to offer both the eyes and the mind. Wellington, perhaps best known for All My Little Ducklings, has outdone herself with the bursting, ripe brightness of her illustrations. The apples look good enough to eat. Many of the pages contain a little something to challenge young minds. There is sorting and counting, object-naming, sign identification, even a little money-counting. For the family that has become a bit hungry while reading, Wellington closes with a few recipes from the tantalizing goodies named in the story. Sweet and crisp. (Picture book. 3-7)

    Great Book!

    I bought this book for one of my nieces. I really liked the colorful illustrations and the fact that she was a girl and a farmer. I also liked that the book takes you through all the steps of growing the apples harvesting the apples using the apples to bake and cook with and taking the apples and baked goods to the market to sell. I'm a teacher so I liked the educational aspect of that. The book also includes recipes. It turns out my niece loved the book so I bought two more copies to give to my other two nieces for Christmas and another copy for my son when he's a little bit older. He's only 16 months so its a little old for him now. In terms of age ranges I would say probably 3 to 6 would be an appropriate age range for this book.
