Apples The very word conjures up images of fall: ripe red apples falling off the tree as the leaves begin their glorious extravaganza of color change; baskets of gathered fruits at the foot of laddered orchards; the rich aroma of an apple-pie cooling. As school starts again, an apple for the teacher is a time-honored tradition. Apples are coated in candy or caramel to celebrate the end-of-year holidays. They are crushed into cider to keep us warm around a fire as summer slips away and the first hint of frost chills the darkening nights. In this beautifully produced book, apples are more than just fruit, they are iconic of everything fall.
"Apples for Everyone" is a seasonal treasure that will help to shape a National Geographic view of the world for young readers. This delightful look at the fruit of fall is sure to inspire a rich appreciation of all things autumnal.
