About the Author

Gail Gibbons grew up writing stories and drawing pictures to fit the words, and wishing she lived in the country. After graduating from the University of Illinois with a bachelor of fine arts degree, she became involved in television graphics. This led her to work on a children’s TV show, where her desire to write and illustrate children’s books was rekindled. Eventually Gail became a full-time writer and moved to rural Vermont, where she could have a garden and as many pets as she wanted. Gail has written more than 140 books and has made countless visits to schools. The feedback she gets from children is invaluable and often inspires ideas for future projects. Gail and her husband, Kent Ancliffe, have a dog named Wilbur and two cats, named Miles and Davis. They live in Vermont in a passive solar house that Gail’s husband built and on an island off the coast of Maine.

The Seasons of Arnolds Apple Tree is an excellent book with illustrations that capture the changes in an apple tree throughout the seasons. I read this book with my kindergartners every September and they enjoy it very much. This is a wonderful picture book for kids and a great resource for teachers when teaching about apples, plant life and the four seasons.

I recently purchased this book for my kindergartener to do a book project. He needed a book about the seasons, and this one fit perfectly. It simply illustrates and tells what happens to Arnold's apple tree around the year as each season passes.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers the basics of what a tree goes through every season. Arnold and his dog take you through each season and explain what type of activities they do with the tree. Winter they build a fort around the tree for company, summer they build a treehouse, fall they rake and pick apples and in spring they hang out in the tree and smell the apple blowwoms and build a tree swing. Arnold treats the tree as his friend through-out the book. On a few of the pages, there is a recipe for apple pie, directions and explanations of what a cider press is and does and facts about honeybees. My overall impression of the book is that it is an okay book with okay pictures. If it wasn't partially educational, it wouldn't have been rated with 3 stars.

This book is a must-have for any elementary teacher. I used this book in my Kindergarten class to teach the seasons and the growth of apples. My students loved the pictures and really learned the material from the story and reviewing after. I kept coming back to this book day after day to reinforce the content and my students were excited each time. One activity I did to teach the seasons was make a "The Seasons of (students name) Apple Tree" book. There were four pages with a bare tree. At the top the students would write It is summer, It is fall, etc. Then we would look at our story and describe the picture. Then the students would add orange and red leaves for fall, etc. I love this book and would recommend it to all!

I found this to be a very useful book for introducing the concept of seasons to my 5 yr old son. It's beautifully illustrated and the story is quite sweet, although I'm not sure how frequently he will ask to hear it again. It's not likely to end up on his list of favorites.

This is a wonderful book. It goes through the seasons of the year with the apple tree. There are large illustrations on each page, along with a sentence or two of text. This book is great for those wishing to learn about seasons of the year and also about phases of an apple tree (from buds to blossoms to apples to bare branches and back to buds again). Although I wish that the text had some rhyme or cadence to it, its still a very good book that my daughter asks to have read to her again and again.
