Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-Gr 2-Each autumn, Annie picks her apples, and sorts and organizes them. Some she turns into applesauce, apple muffins, apple cake (recipes included), and cider. The best she saves to sell at the market. Happily, she sells everything and returns home to rest, read, and, of course, eat an apple. Charming and cheery, her story makes a great read-aloud. The illustrations seem to step right out of a coloring book with simple shapes, objects, and bright, crayon-box colors. Left-hand pages contain text framed by objects that reinforce the words; more detailed, full-page illustrations appear on the right. For example, road signs surround the sentence explaining that Annie drives to the city; the accompanying picture shows a bridge with a city skyline in the background. Cooking utensils surround the sentences describing how she makes applesauce and muffins, while on the right is an illustration of the young woman in the kitchen. All in all, this is a tasty complement to Zoe Hall's The Apple Pie Tree (Scholastic, 1996) and Anne Rockwell's Apples and Pumpkins (S & S, 1989).

From Booklist

Ages 3-7. Although she appears to be around 12, Apple Farmer Annie is the keeper of an orchard. In this cheerful book, Wellington follows Annie as she harvests her apples, makes cider and applesauce, and takes apples to market to sell. Many books for youngsters deal with farm life in general and apples in particular, but this one is unusual in that it's about a female farmer whose rural occupation isn't centered on livestock. The illustrations, bright, colorful, and detailed, have a pleasant, childlike quality, and recipes for applesauce, muffins, and cake make for extra fun. Marta Segal

This is a very simply written book about a girl who owns an apple orchard who picks and prepares her apples for selling in various forms at the market.

We checked this book out of the libaray in haste on day, as we were leaving. It is a beautiful book, with bright, simple illustrations, that tells a story about Apple Farmer Annie, what she grows (different kinds of apples), what she does with them (apple sauce, muffins, etc.), where she goes and how she sells her goods (farmer's market). There aren't a lot of words on the pages, but there is alot going on visually. While the illustrations themselves may be somewhat simple...each page is packed with many, many objects. It gives the story teller an opportunity to expand on the story and get your child involved by either explaining or having the child explain what is going on. For example, there are all kinds of apples listed, different colors of apples, types of kitchen utensils, and Annie herself is involved on the pages actually doing the things described. It also presents a logical sequence of events: growing, harvesting, preparing, selling, etc. As an added bonus, there is a recipe section at the back. We didn't get a chance to try any, maybe we will have to buy the book for ourselves. Cute book, but maybe for ages a little younger than listed, due to the lack of words.

I am a preschool teacher and I picked this book out of the library because I was doing a unit on apples. The bright pictures and simple words attracted me to this book. The children in my class loved the book. They got so excited to find recipes in the back of the book. Of course we have already tried two to of them. I plan on buying the book to share with my future classes and my two little boys at home.

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 :)

Format: Paperback
I chose this book from the library to compliment an apple unit I'm doing with my daughter (24 months). Of the stack of nine apple books I found, this is by far her favorite.

Each page spread has about 10-15 words (two sentences) in large type. The pictures are colorful and bold. They are simple yet provide enough detail and variety that there are many opportunities for volcabulary growth and side discussions.

There are three recipes included in the back of the book. They look delicious, but we haven't tried them (we will stick to healthier versions).

The story line and illustrations are fairly realistic (no talking animals, etc.). My only complaint along these lines is that the entire story seems to take place in one day (harvesting, cooking, driving to town, selling at the market, and coming home), which is more than a bit ambitious. :)

We have read this book aloud many, many times over the past week. Both of us are still enjoying it, and I have even found my daughter "reading" this book to her dolls.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a delightful book and sends an excellent message to young readers as well. I in fact do not think a children's book is required to have a message; it just needs to delight. But the message here is that hard work and being good at something is rewarding, and that's a pretty good message for a young reader to receive. Parents of both girls and boys will appreciate the main character's savvy, entrepreneurial qualities. The illustrations are lovely and bright without being too busy, and the tasty recipes at the end are and added treat. My now four year-old son has gone through two apple picking seasons with this book, and refers to "Apple Farmer Annie" as though she were one of his best pals. I highly recommend this book. Caveat: if you read it to your child in a season other than fall, or if you live someplace where apples don't grow, be prepared to handle the request to visit an orchard!

I don't know what it is about this book, but my daughter LOVES it. She's 23 months and we took this out of the library. It is her favorite and she asks for it by name every morning and night. The pictures are great and there's lots to explore in each one. Highly recommend

My 3 year old adores all the Monica Wellington books. We started with this one. The colors in the illustrations are wonderful, and the text is simple but easy to follow. Even the parents got a good lesson in apple varieties. Being a paperback, it suffered a lot of wear and tear so we had to replace it, but that's not the book's fault. We recommend any and all of Monica Wellington's fanciful books.

We read this book over and over. My just-turned-two year old likes me to talk about the pictures with her, and has fun identifying the objects and finding Annie's dog (who appears on every page). My three year old enjoys the story of Annie's harvest and trip to the city farmer's market. It's a story about farming that my urban children can identify with -- making the connection with the farmer's market we visit on weekends. The illustrations are distinctive and cheery. It's one of our most-read books.
