Grade 1-3-- Beginning with the bare branches of winter, the Maestros describe the apple until the time of picking. The parts of the flower are presented in a simple manner and labeled. Fertilization is also discussed in a way that is easily understood. The text is brief, but adequate in its content. Soft watercolor illustrations enhance the text. An excellent addition, particularly in communities that celebrate Johnny Appleseed's birthday. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
