From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—As she did with the delightful Pick a Circle, Gather Squares (Albert Whitman, 2013), Chernesky has taken a familiar subject and given it a fresh presentation. A little girl and her mother have gone apple picking. The rhyming couplets flow smoothly ("Reaching up we take our pick,/twist and pluck them. That's the trick.") and include lovely verbal images. The book proceeds from the apple-picking process to cider-making and ends with an apple festival. While Chernesky captures the enthusiasm of this fun fall activity in words, Patton captures it with her energetic digital cartoon illustrations as well. The pictures include details to pore over and engage the eye without being overly busy. In addition, a wealth of information, such as the names of various apples and the appearance of an actual cider press, is provided in the artwork. VERDICT Even if you are awash in apple books, this title will be an attractive and useful addition.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
"While Chernesky captures the enthusiasm of this fun fall activity in words, Patton captures it with her energetic digital cartoon illustrations as well...Even if you are awash in apple books, this title will be an attractive and useful addition." School Library Journal, September 1, 2015
"This visit to an apple farm is lots of fun for both the redheaded tyke who narrates and readers, who will learn how apple cider is made…Mouths will water for apple cider, and a trip to the local orchard is surely in order." Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2015
"Chernesky's playfully chirrupy rhymes and Patton's exuberant cartooning deliver a juicy taste of a quintessential autumnal experience." Publishers Weekly, August 3, 2015

There are thousands of children's books, but this one stands out. It is written and illustrated with a warmth and care that will allow both parents and kids to discover a myriad of things to cherish in its pages. My wife and I have been going through and re-reading Apple Trees night after night before bedtime, but, amazingly, we're still enjoying it. (This is a rare quality for a children's book!)
Highly recommended, especially for young readers showing an interest in language. Chernesky is a master poet, and there is a lifetime of study that goes into making verses fall into place with so seemingly little effort.
Oh, and when you read the book to your kids, I bet they giggle with glee at the mention of "apple mush"!
