A fun and fact-filled ABC book -- all about apples!
Everyone knows that. But there is a lot more to learn about this delicious fruit.
Fox, Bear, and their friends lead young readers through an apple alphabet--from apple buds and blossoms through nutrition and orchards to the X on an apple pie. Along the way, apple lovers will pick up a windfall of apple science and lore, as well as fun facts and child-friendly information. And twenty-six apple varieties are introduced, even ones for X, Y, and Z!
