The Apple Pie Tree

The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall is another family favorite discovered at the resale shop.  I love this book!  It is a simple story told by a young girl about an apple tree at her home, how the tree changes throughout the seasons, (along with a family of birds that lives in the tree) and how in the fall, the apples are harvested and the family makes apple pie.  

The illustrations are beautiful, I love the angles and perspectives shown of the girl, her sister, the birds and the apple tree.  The back of the book includes a recipe for apple pie, which we have not tried yet.

This is a sweet, simple story that describes apples growing and the changing seasons.  It's a great read for harvest time, but I like it all year round.

This is a great one we've checked out of our library! I also recommend "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World."

It looks great, Karen. I'll definitely look out for it.
