Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
In time for a trip to the orchard, the appropriately-shaped Apples, Apples by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld, illus. by Christopher Santoro, follows a family of bears as they pick fruit and enjoy a feast of apple-based delights. "Apple cider warm and spicy,/ apples sweet to crunch./ And just for today oh, lovely day / apple doughnuts with our lunch." Santoro's illustrations are as warm and sugary as the cobblers and pies. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Apples are a versatile fruit and in this apple-shaped board book a bear family head out to a pick-you-own apple farm. The outing includes a picnic with sandwiches plus apple cider and crunchy fresh apples. With baskets full, the family heads on home where they prepare lots of tasty treats—apple dumplings, apple cake, pies and just simple baked apples. It is a tasty treat and offers a great opportunity for parents or caregivers to share an apple and perhaps introduce more stories such as one about the famed Johnny Appleseed. 2004, HarperFestival/HarperCollins, Ages 1 to 3.

A favorite book at our house, this is the story of a family of bears who visit the apple orchard. The book is often asked for by name by our son. The art in the book is particularly charming, with main details easy to understand but also other things going on to interest a child. Our son particularly likes to find the bird that follows the bear family in many pictures and the bee that shows up later on.
