Myles and Amber wake up early to visit Grandma and Grandpa's California apple orchard. They pick apples all day long, filling bushels of Red and Golden Delicious, McIntosh and Pippins, Gravensteins and Winter Bananas. Grandma makes apple cider, and they snack on fresh apple pie. Before they know it, apple-picking time is over and apple-selling time has begun. This warmhearted story brings three generations of a family together to celebrate and share in the working of a fall harvest.
