Apples (Gail Gibbons)
Take a fun look at apples from seedlings to fully matured fruit, including the historical impact of colonists and the famous John Chapman. Common apples are illustrated, along with caramel apples and the Halloween activity of bobbing for apples. Planting and caring for apple trees and a recipe for apple pie round out this fun look at children's favorite fruit!
I was thrilled to see that these wonderful science books are once again available! Brilliantly illustrated, with striking photos and diagrams combined with clearly explained science facts made these a family favorite for years. In fact, our beloved copy of the Moon Book was held together by packing tape until my son finally outgrew his love of space in middle school.
Written by popular children's author Gail Gibbons, each book in the series provides younger children an excellent primer in a wide-range of science topics. Don't let the term "primer" scare you off! The information presented is foundational to the topical study of science within each book. Page counts vary from 28-32 pgs. Most are paperback with the exception of Surrounded by Sea, which is hardcover. From a secular publisher, you will find the occasional evolutionary references which may make for interesting family discussion. ~Deanne
