"Each autumn, Annie picks her apples, and sorts and organizes
them. Some she turns into applesauce, apple muffins, apple cake, and cider.
The best she saves to sell at the market. Happily, she sells everything
and returns home to rest, read, and, of course, eat an apple. Charming
and cheery, her story makes a great read-aloud. The illustrations seem
to step right out of a coloring book with simple shapes, objects, and
bright, crayon-box colors."
"A visually robust salute to a favorite fruit. Wellington
has outdone herself with the bursting, ripe brightness of her illustrations.
Many of the pages contain a little something to challenge young minds.
There is sorting and counting, object-naming, sign identification, even
a little money counting. Sweet and crisp."
My recipes for apple sauce, applesauce cake, and apple muffins are included at the end of the book, and on the ACTIVITES page of this website.
