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).

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
