Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-7. The ever-popular topic of apples gets a delightful new look in this book that will charm children as well as inform them. The Rabbit family is off to go apple picking. At the orchard, Farmer Miller shows them a handy chart that lists the kinds of apples that are grown in the orchard, what they're like, and what they are good for. As they pick the apples, they also learn about them; Farmer Miller cuts one in half and explains how apples are planted, grown, and developed. At home, the family makes applesauce, learns how to print with apples, and sings an apple song. Much of this information can be found elsewhere, but what sets this book apart is its wonderful paper-cut artwork. Whether the art shows the family's warm moments or the inside of an apple, these simple but special pictures demand a second and third look. Their three-dimensional appearance, which will make kids want to reach out and touch, also seems simple enough to translate into kids' art classes. There will be lots of ways to use and enjoy this.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cut-paper illustrations trace this educational tale of a bunny family's outing to an orchard and its aftermath. Wallace shoehorns in useful information on apple culture, from selected varieties and their uses to planting, grafting and proper picking technique. Readers learn that the apple is actually a member of the rose family and discover the parts of an apple when the farmer cuts one in half. Later, when the bunny family of four return home, they are treated to applesauce (the recipe, with step-by-step illustrations, is included). Also included are instructions for making apple prints, a list of apple maxims and an apple song. Wallace's artwork excels in the instructional sections, with clear labels of the proceedings, and a lively spread of the orchard. Less successful are the characters themselves, which show little personality or differentiation. This title will likely be of most interest to teachers. Ages 4-8. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
