Apple Batterby Deborah Turney Zagwyn
In Deborah Turney Zagwyn's distinctive world, the countryside is awash in color, and the seasons set the rhythm for life. This is the parallel story of mother Loretta and son Delmore. While Loretta works patiently to coax the first apples from her small orchard, Delmore ardently practices his swing, wanting only to hit a baseball "fair and true." The poetic text and radiant watercolors effortlessly reveal how sweet are the fruits of perseverance, and that one of love's best rewards is striving, side by side.Educators, please visit our Resources section, above, for teaching guides and curricula.
