PreS–The young rabbit introduced in Tuckers Four-Carrot School Day (HarperCollins, 2005) goes on a field trip to Farmer Sams Apple Orchard. He promises to bring home enough apples for a pie, but he has many things to see and eagerly lends a hand to his classmates. When the bus is ready to leave, Tucker realizes that he has no apples, and the others share a portion of their pickings with him because he was such a good friend and helper. At home the Rabbit family enjoys the pie and expresses their pride in Tucker. The sweet watercolor-and-ink paintings quietly illustrate the comfort and security of family life. Pair this seasonal title with Monica Wellingtons Apple Farmer Annie (Dutton, 2001) or Anne Rockwells Apples and Pumpkins (S & S, 1989).–Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
