    1. HmmmI'm not sure why my kiddos didn't like this one. The information was good, and they do like non-fiction sometimes. The illustrations were fine. Nothing odd or anything. But I found that the book just couldn't keep their attention during our unit on apples. Honestly? It didn't work all that well for me, either. It justdragged. Not sure why, but there you are.

    2. I love apples. This book has great illustrations to show the growth of an apple. It tells you the season apples begin to grow. I think it's awesome how it illustrates how a seed is formed. This book makes a great tool to teach children in kindergarten about apple growth.

    3. Great book for kids teaching them how apple trees grow and produce the fruit. Wonderful Illustrations and very educational. I recommend this for the young and old. You are never too old to learn something new.

    4. Genre: Informational This book is great for Kindergarten and up. One unique feature of this text is the illustrations were done in pencil then watercolor.

    7. Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.This series is perfect for basic introductions to science topics. Told simply, but with enough detail to present the topic thoroughly. The text is written in a narrative voice that is friendly while being informative. The pictures illustrate diagrams with lines pointing to certain parts being discussed and throughout the story the same orchard and family are featured. A perfect combination of text and illustrations make this an enjoyable and [...]

    8. This book describes the way an apple grows on a tree, from the tiny leaf buds that exist in winter, to flowers blooming while bees pollinate them, through the time the apple ripens and is harvested. The text gives carefully detailed descriptions of how the fruit develops without being wordy, and children who like to understand how things work will appreciate the straightforward way these facts are presented. Like most of the books in this series, the illustrations are pretty average, but when ap [...]

    9. While the pictures are simplistic and easy enough to follow, I feel like this book goes really in-depth with how apples are formed and may be too complicated for younger readers to understand. I think it would make a great unit in science for fourth and fifth graders, or even bringing in part of the information for younger grades if you happen to be talking about Johnny Appleseed. However, as far as the information goes, I learned a lot that I didn't know about apples, but some of it was hard fo [...]

    10. I'm not sure where, but recently I stumbled across the idea of the Read-and-Find-Out Science books and this is the first one I've picked up to read and I am highly impressed. Not only are the details and text fabulous and informative, but the illustrations are gorgeous. I will be looking for more of these. Our library had this one, and I'm not sure if these are a necessary to buy or just borrow, but either way necessary to experience.

    11. This would be a very informative book for young readers, but I personally didn't enjoy reading it. This book should primarily be used to introduce a science lesson since their is no really story to it. But it would be good at introducing how apples grow from a scientific point of view, the illustrations would also be very good for this.

    12. How Do Apples Grow is a children's book that could be used as a lesson over apples during Johnny Appleseed week. This is a life science book that explains where apples come from and the birds that help pollinate to the apples that start out as flowers. This book would be good for ages 1-3 and there is no content concern.

    13. I can't believe how much I learned from this book! This is by no means what Charlotte Mason would call 'twaddle'! ( :The author also has another great one in this series called 'Why Do Leaves Change Colors'.

    14. This is a great book to use for the life cycles of an apple. Showing where they start to where they end up and are ready to be picked off the tree. I would use this in the fall to introduce learning centers based on apples.

    15. Great book to use during a science lesson. Discusses all the different parts of the flowers and fertilization.

    16. Used to teach procedural non fiction text the picture book format is a little deceiving, it's a little complex for my second and third graders.

    17. This is an informational book. We learned that apples come from flowers and trees rest in the winter, bees help flowers make apples. It takes 50 leaves to feed one apple.

    18. Very informative book that tells how an apple grows from a seed to being picked off of a tree. This book even taught me something.
