    This book is a must-have for any elementary teacher. I used this book in my Kindergarten class to teach the seasons and the growth of apples. My students loved the pictures and really learned the material from the story and reviewing after. I kept coming back to this book day after day to reinforce the content and my students were excited each time. One activity I did to teach the seasons was make a "The Seasons of (students name) Apple Tree" book. There were four pages with a bare tree. At the top the students would write It is summer, It is fall, etc. Then we would look at our story and describe the picture. Then the students would add orange and red leaves for fall, etc. I love this book and would recommend it to all!

    Purchased for my Special Education classroom in an effort to introduce my students to see Science concepts in a visual format. Great book, informative with lovely illustrations!

    I was hoping for a little more about it being an apple tree. Good story about seasons.

    This is a wonderful book. It goes through the seasons of the year with the apple tree. There are large illustrations on each page, along with a sentence or two of text. This book is great for those wishing to learn about seasons of the year and also about phases of an apple tree (from buds to blossoms to apples to bare branches and back to buds again). Although I wish that the text had some rhyme or cadence to it, its still a very good book that my daughter asks to have read to her again and again.

    I found this to be a very useful book for introducing the concept of seasons to my 5 yr old son. It's beautifully illustrated and the story is quite sweet, although I'm not sure how frequently he will ask to hear it again. It's not likely to end up on his list of favorites.
