Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1?Marzollo details the life of an apple from bud to flower to fruit to market to table. The story unfolds in simple sentences in large, easy-to-read type. Moffatt's full-color collages are pleasing and uncluttered. The focus is on the apple and its growing cycle. The illustrator creates a 3-D effect that makes the pictures seem to lift off the page. As the petals fall, young readers will want to reach out to catch them and will eagerly turn the page to see what surprises may be waiting. This series entry presents a science concept in a simple, straightforward way. When you use it in storyhour, have some apples ready for munching.?Mary Ann Bursk, Bucks County Free Library, Levittown, PA

More About the Author

Jean Marzollo was born and raised in Manchester, Connecticut.

She says, "As a child, I loved to read and sew dolls' clothes, one outfit after another. I am a graduate of Manchester High School, the University of Connecticut, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. After working as a high school English teacher and editor of Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" kindergarten magazine with Carol Devine Carson for 20 years, I began writing children's books. I have written over 130 books, including the award-winning, best-selling I SPY series for children, written completely in rhythm and rhyme. Rhythm and rhyme are like music without the tune; they lure and excite the ear. Children love rhythm and rhyme, and so do I. Do you know that I SPY actually has the same rhythm as "Old Mother Hubbard" and also rap? I treasure the beautiful, intricate photographs by Walter Wick in the I SPY books. When I wrote the first I SPY book, I automatically thought of kindergarten children so everything that I called for was concrete, something a 5-year-old can find. The result is a hunting game that children and grownups can play together successfully. Sometimes children are better than their parents! In recent years I took up painting and have begun to illustrate my own "books on paper" and "books online." You can see them on my website: jeanmarzollo.com. Writing and illustrating picture books today is as much fun as sewing dolls' clothes was when I was in third grade. As soon as I'm done with one book, I'm happily compelled to start the next."

Jean Marzollo lives in Upstate New York.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book describes the cycle of an apple growing on a tree. Each page has one or two simple sentences with cute illustrations. Page one text: "I am a red bud. I live on a branch in an apple tree." Page two text: "I grow in the rain. I grown in the sun." The book is small in size, about 5x7 inches. I use the Big Book format of this book when reading to a large group of children. This is an excellent book, I have based a whole unit on Apples around this one book.
