Recommended Ages: 5-6
Star Rating: ★★★

Because I have no cautions and the story is very simple, this review will only consist of one paragraph. (A record!) The basic idea of this book by Clyde Robert Bulla (Shoeshine Girl, A Lion to Guard Us)  is to outline the growth of an apple tree from its beginnings as a seed to its end as a fully mature, fruit-producing tree. It is instructional on a very basic level and could be used either as a first grade reader or a read-aloud. The illustrations are not great, but they are not ugly either.

Conclusion. I said it all already. The end! : )
