CHAPTER 1

Hello, apples in the trees, growing just for Mom and me.

Reaching up, we take our pick. Twist and pluck them. That's the trick.

Wow! Our wagon's apple full. Mom, let's roll! I'll help you pull ...

... past dappled leaves and through the loud and happy apple-picking crowd.

Scarecrows, mums, and bales of hay help to lead us on our way.

Here's the mill. Now let me guess. That's an apple cider press!

Clean the apples. Check for worms.

Wash and dry them. No more germs.

Every apple does its part, whether juicy sweet or tart.
