Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6 --These two engaging books present interesting facts about apples and eggs, respectively. The Amazing Apple Book covers the legends, historical background, natural history, recipes, games, and crafts for the apple. Hunt's Apples: A Bushel of Fun and Facts (Parents Magazine Pr, 1976; o.p.) is comparable in scope. Like its companion, The Amazing Egg Book is divided into five sections; topics include folktales and legends, scientific facts, eggs as food (including recipes), games, crafts, and magic tricks. Both books are illustrated throughout with cartoonlike black-line drawings that break up the text and are sure to entice youngsters. The books are not only fun to browse through and useful for school reports, but are also wonderful source books for educators. --Barbara B. Murphy, Shaler Area School District Libraries, Pittsburgh
