Overview

Apples for Everyone is a new picture book in the Picture the Seasons series that the whole family can enjoy. This attractive and educational companion to the best-selling titles A Tree for All Seasons and Pilgrims of Plymouth features stunning National Geographic photography and a stimulating, accessible text.

Apples! The very word conjures up images of fall: ripe red apples falling off the tree as the leaves begin their glorious extravaganza of color change; baskets of gathered fruits at the foot of laddered orchards; the rich aroma of an apple-pie cooling. As school starts again, an apple for the teacher is a time-honored tradition. Apples are coated in candy or caramel to celebrate the end-of-year holidays. They are crushed into cider to keep us warm around a fire as summer slips away and the first hint of frost chills the darkening nights. In this beautifully produced book, apples are more than just fruit, they are iconic of everything fall.

Apples for Everyone is a seasonal treasure that will help to shape a National Geographic view of the world for young readers. This delightful look at the fruit of fall is sure to inspire a rich appreciation of all things autumnal.

If you're looking for a non-fiction book about apples, then this is the book for you. Full of crisp, bright photographs of apples and children who enjoy them, Apples for Everyone is a simple introduction to everything about apples - how they grow, how we use them, and how they're intertwined with our history. A small, fun paperback. Another great book for teachers.

I used this as a nonfictional text in my first grade classroom and it was great! The kids loved it and it provided the information about apples I needed and more. Overall a great nonfiction text.
