    1. This is a great book to introduce in the fall because the apple theme relates perfectly. I loved that the recipes were included at the end of the book so that families, or even classrooms, could experience a new way of hands on learning. The cute and colorful illustrations really work to keep the young readers engaged. Although there is a lot of learning to be done in this story, there is a general lesson as well. This book shows kids that hard work does in fact pay off. This would be a wonderfu [...]


    2. Apple Farmer Annie goes to an apple orchard where she learns all about apples. She learns how they grow, recipes made with apples, and the stages of an apple tree through the seasons. The book offers recipes that can be added to an activity to make it more meaningful. This book is great to read in the fall as apples are at full harvest.


    3. I thought the book was okay but very simple. I'm disappointed that the author didn't include more about the different kinds of apples but also think it will be a good book for students who are just learning how to read.


    4. Great check-out from the library. Montessori-friendly. Perfect for reading around fall. Pairs well with "Farmers Market Days" and "Applesauce Season"



    5. This was a book I read in my practicum while they were learning about seeds. It is a fun read to put agriculture into the eyes of children.




    6. A delicious treat about America's favorite fruit is now available in a Spanish bilingual format. Ana grows and sells apples, and she makes cider and applesauce and muffins. A glossary helps kids learn the names of Ana's delicious ingredients in both languages. With tie-ins to math and science curricula and units on autumn, this book will be especially welcomed by teachers. Truly the pick of the crop!Subject: Apple growers -- Juvenile fiction.Apples -- Juvenile fiction.Farmers' markets -- Juvenil [...]


    7. It's apple season in Western New York, so this was on display at our local library and didn't have too many words for my 2 1/2 y/o to sit for. The illustrations are clear, bright, colorful and fun (lots of animals) and the story is informative, but not too loaded down with facts. I love that there are recipes in the back. We will be trying them before it goes back to the library. DS's favorite page is the one where Annie is driving her apple goodies into the city for the farmers market. There ar [...]


    8. This is a great childrens book about a farmer who grows apples. The book is bilingual and written in Spanish and English. It is perfect for math, and teaching counting but it can also serve as a book for science in PreK. The book can initiate conversations in students that promote conversations about the life cycle of apples. Children can talk about how apples start as seeds on a farm and grow into ripe fruit.


    9. Annie is an apple farmer that must count and sort to get through her day. This book contains English and Spanish to enrich the children with a foreign language. There are also many different apple recipes in the book as well. Apple Farmer Annie is brightly illustrated and will interest young children. I would set up an activity where the children would count and sort the ingredients to one of the recipes in the book. Then I would conduct a class food project and make one of the recipes.


    10. This bilingual book has both English and Spanish in it and great for ELL students. The book talks about Anna, the apple orchid owner who must pick the apples while they are in season. It covers the different types of apples, what you can make with apples, and selling the apples. The colorful pictures encourage environmental print and keep the student's attention. Recipes are included.WONDERFUL ESOL BOOK!!


    11. An exceptionally basic book about apples - but for some reason we thoroughly enjoyed it! Really nothing special, but we enjoyed talking about apples and all of the fun things that we can make with apples. There are recipes in the back that the kids are wanting to try, and I think that would be fun.


    12. This is another which works well in bilingual storytime because it is not too text-heavy. There are good talking points in this book from the illustrations around the text; for example, in the page where Ana is going to the city, we see various street signs and structures she encounters along the way. Good for farming and job themes.


    13. Informational book #7This book is based on a real person. It talks about the steps Annie does with her apples. First she picks them and sorts them out. Then it talks about her making different recipes using her apples. Then with the left over apples she takes them to the farmers market and sells them.


    14. I loved Apple Farmer Annie, and the book was a favorite with the kids, too. So educational, so beautifully illustrated, so fun. Annie makes for a strong, self-directed character, living a great life on her own terms. This is a great book to read to little ones over and over. It also fits in well with introducing them to gardening fruits and vegetables.


    15. We liked this a lot, and I especially got a kick out of the fact that it's located in our area although of course Lucy doesn't care about that. The pictures are cute and detailed and easy to use for questions and conversations -- what is in the pictures, counting apples, finding specific items, using verbs to describe what is happening.


    16. I really enjoyed how this book showed the different ways to do things with apples. After reading this particular book, I discovered ways to make things with apples. During snack time, I can gather the students around and discussed what letter of the alphabet does an apple begins with. Then we can eat the apples.


    17. Annie is very busy in the fall on her farm. We follow her through her chores and off to the market. The illustrations are great because they leave lots of room for open-ended discussions, counting, etc. You can even discuss the life-cycle of an apple in the first illustration from blossom to ripe fruit. This is perfect for preschoolers, but with some discussion can interest K-2 also.


    18. October is the best time of the year for apples, and the farmer in this cute new book seems to know it. The simple language and illustrations make this easily an independent reading possibility, but, as a read aloud, all the many details in the illustrations can be discussed. Of course, the recipes will require adult participation anyway.


    19. This is a great book for student to get them to do simple counting. You can easily create a activiy to get students to sort apples and count at the same time. I love the way this book has recipes in the back of the book. The book also lists different types of apples. You can even make one of the recipes in class for cooking.


    20. Lucy, my two-year-old, loves this book. We've checked it our from the library at least 3 times. The steps of the growing season as well as the illustrations are great at walking kids through where our food comes from in a fun way.


    21. Annie is an apple farmer and readers take a tour of her farm and watch what she does with her fruit. Simple text is explanatory and great for reading aloud. Recipes are inclded following the story making this a great book for classroom use. PreK-2.


    22. This is a great book to use as transition into a cooking activity. I read this book to my class and we had a great discussion about how apples grow and all the different ways we can use them. We weren't able to make applesauce but I brought some in for them to eat.


    23. If your kid likes applesA LOTis is a great book. Lots of colorful illustrations and includes a recipe at the end for apple stuffs-- though we usually skip that part since my son says, "AGAIN!" when we get to the last page.


    24. Oh, this book! My grand-daugther loves it and we have continually reread it. It is the first books she grabs every time we read books together. Love Annie and her apples and her farmer's market. Colorful and inviting story.


    25. Annie the apple farmer watches over her orchards until it is time to pick the apples and sort them. She makes cider, baked goods and apple sauce with her apples. She saves the best for the market though. At the end of the day she is quite tired but proud of her apples.Recipes included.


    26. On behalf of my toddler, this book gets 5 stars. Story is short and sweet, we love that Annie is a woman, a farmer, a business owner, and a baker. One role does not define her! Love that she's apparently in the Hudson Valley somewhere.


    27. It's not the best, most wonderful book ever, but it's not bad.It has simple text and simple artwork, and is well-suited for toddlers, preschoolers, and young school-aged children.I especially like the recipes in the back. I *always* like recipes in the back :)
