Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Behind the science here, kids will find lessons on process, patience, discovery, and hope."

Booklist

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Apples crop up not only in orchards from Maine to Washington state, but also in the September curricula of thousands of elementary schools across the country. Here, just in time for the autumn harvest, is a colorful entry. The brief text is clear and informative enough to satisfy the very young and to stimulate questions from slightly older children. Pollination is not mentioned in the body of the book, but the blossoms are "waiting for bees" and a honeybee is shown in the heart of a flower. Two pages of detailed data on pollination, grafting, and apple/human history are appended. Luminous pencil drawings in sparkling reds, greens, blues, golds, and white follow apples from winter buds to apple pies, ending with deer enjoying windfalls in a late autumn orchard. Also portrayed in this rich cycle are children and adults enjoying blossoms and fruit in equal measure, from crunchy bites to soft applesauce on a Hanukkah latke, from cinnamony pie to juicy finds in a Christmas stocking. This welcome companion to Gail Gibbons's Apples (Holiday, 2000) and Zoe Hall's The Apple Pie Tree (Scholastic, 1996) is as glossy, crisp, and appealing as the subjects themselves.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Hubbell (Pumpkin Jack, 2000) poses children and apple trees together in every season, and writes evocatively of the apple’s annual cycle, from dormant winter bud to farmers’ market and applesauce for latkes. "There are apples here, / hidden in buds and waiting for spring. / There are apples here / scenting the air and waiting for bees." Not much, but pleasant. The art doesn’t measure up to the writing, however; facial features on his multicultural cast are often oddly placed, and the colors, especially reds and greens, have a harsh, unnatural cast. The extensive afterword is actually more valuable than the rest of the offering. Considering the plethora of same-topic titles available—Ken Robbins’s Apples, for instance (p. 962)—this, though not really a bad apple, isn’t likely to be a first pick. (Picture book/nonfiction. 5-7)

There are apples here,

There are apples here,

scenting the air and waiting for bees.

There are apples here,

waiting for the sun and rain to help them grow.

There are apples here,

Apples for cider, apples for pies,

apples to find in Christmas stockings,
