Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "What Grows in Your Garden" series, this book is a basic first step to learning about apples. Rooney answers basic questions, such as "Which types of apples are used for cooking?" "What happens to a dead apple flower?" and "Why are apples good for you?" The photographs are colorful, vibrant and eye-catching, with bright, inset labels to point out the details mentioned within the text. The information presented in the text is very basic for the youngest pre-readers, making this book ideal for read-aloud situations. The quick, somewhat superficial treatment of the subject is well-suited to hold the often-limited attention of children who aren't yet reading for themselves. A glossary at the back of the book provides detailed definitions for the more uncommon words, providing a little bit more depth into the subject for older researchers. Unfortunately, the actual text glosses over much of the information presented within the pages of this book, and it would be nice if, in addition to the glossary, there was a list of resources for further reading for those who wish to explore deeper into the fascinating world of apples. Children who are old enough to read the book for themselves, and those who may be looking for information for a school assignment may become frustrated at this lack of depth.
