Books About Apples

Visiting the apple orchard is one of our favorite late summer/early fall activities. It truly starts to feel like the seasons are changing when the apples are ready to pick! Whenever we head out on any field trip, we read books to enrich our experience and learn more about where we’re going. Picture books are an especially fun way to introduce concepts to young kids, and even older kids (and adults) enjoy the beauty and simplicity of a picture book..
When we visited a local orchard for a tour, the guide explained the different stages apple trees go through over the seasons. He also explained the vital need for bees to pollinate the trees–or else, there are no apples! We learned a lot from our guide, but reading some books before going helped my kids ask some good questions.
We are sharing some of our favorite apple books below. If you have any to add to our list, please let us know!
Happy Reading (and apple picking)!
