it is good
This books was sent to my daughter at age 6, 10 years ago now. Her brother is 5 and we pulled it off the shelf yesterday to read. The sing song poem really appealed to him and the pictures were captivating. He was counting all the apple 'meadows' (his word) and learned the word orchard. He noticed a log cabin and all the stumps around it that provided the trees. The pictures are rich with question material and I can tell that this is one he will be going back to over and over. Another idea that is presented is that of generations. Hannah begins as a little girl and then we see her as a grandmother. I came looking for another copy of this book to give as a gift.
