Our Books this Week - A is for Apple

Here are the books we are reading for our A is for Apple.
They are either books I was able to borrow,
books I already owned,
or the books I could find at our local library.

A is for Apple Pie - Kate Greenaway
-A beautiful, sweet & clever ABC book.

How to Make an Apple Pie & See the World by Marjorie Priceman
-This is a really fun book.  It's a silly one.
The lesson of the story is where the ingredients come from
that make up a apple pie.
Good for preschoolers.

Our Apple Tree by Gorel Kristina Naslund
-This book is super cute.  The illustrations are adorable.  
The text is very appropriate for little ones to understand.  
We loved it!  It was my favorite, for sure.

Johnny Appleseed  - A Poem by Reeve Lindbergh
This is a beautiful book.
The poem is perfect for reading aloud.
The history is appropriately geared to young kids.

The Season's of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons
-This one was a favorite for my kids, with the bright illustrations.  
They also liked watching all the fun things 
Arnold does in his apple tree throughout the year.

How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestro
-this book was a little "old" for my 2 1/2 year old.  
But, my nearly 4 year old was happy to stick through it.  
The fertilization of the apple was taught simply enough 
for her to understand at least some of it.

Apples by Jacqueline Farmer
 - good book, great info, pretty illustrations. 
It's a little too detailed for preschool., 
with the scion & rootstock grafting lesson & much more.  
Still it can be good reference book for the teacher.

The Apple Pie Tree looked really good to me.
But, the library didn't have it in.
