A Few Reviews:

“I originally got this as a library book but my son loved it so much I had to buy it. First, each page can open up a conversation lasting several minutes- there are so many details. Apple colors and numbers, ingredients, showing a process or procedure, shapes (in the street signs), and so much more. It teaches about entrepreneurship, pride in your work, using all of the parts of things, and life skills. The illustrations are the naive folksy style which would make them easy to imitate for a child as well. Highly recommend as a gift with some seasonal apples to eat as you read. If this review is helpful to you, I would grateful if you pressed the “helpful” button below!” – Amazon Reviewer

“This is a delightful book and sends an excellent message to young readers as well. I in fact do not think a children’s book is required to have a message; it just needs to delight. But the message here is that hard work and being good at something is rewarding, and that’s a pretty good message for a young reader to receive. Parents of both girls and boys will appreciate the main character’s savvy, entrepreneurial qualities. The illustrations are lovely and bright without being too busy, and the tasty recipes at the end are and added treat. My now four year-old son has gone through two apple picking seasons with this book, and refers to “Apple Farmer Annie” as though she were one of his best pals. I highly recommend this book. Caveat: if you read it to your child in a season other than fall, or if you live someplace where apples don’t grow, be prepared to handle the request to visit an orchard!” – Amazon Reviewer
