Picture books are written at a variety of reading levels, and you just have to explore to determine what book is appropriate for what age. Apple Farmer Annie is written with a the younger audience in mind, toddler or kindergarten, with vivid illustrations and a simple story very focused on its topic of apples. Every two page spread has a sentence on one side and a full page picture on the other. The design of the book is charming, with bright pictures featuring the main character and her cute pets, and the opposite page places the text in a framed that is decorated with icons corresponding to the illustration. The result is like looking at a wood block art, and it lends the book a home craft feel, which accentuates the plot. The story is about Annie, an industrious young woman who owns her own apple farm. She grows and harvests her fruit, uses some of the apples to create food, and then packs everything up to sell at a farmer's market in nearby New York City.

Annie has her own apple farm, she picks her apples and makes different things out of them. Annie makes applesauce, apple muffins, apple pies, apple cakes, and keeps the best apples to sell at the farmers market. Annie sells her stuff at the farmers market and is so busy that she has nothing left. Annie is happy and glad she has her own apple farm. This is a great book to read to children when teaching where our food comes from, and that people work hard to make things we enjoy eating.

Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington This picture book is about an apple farmer named Annie. She picks and sorts her apples. Some apples she turns into apple sauce, apple cake, and other yummy things made out of apples. Annie saves the best apples for the market. Annie sells apples in the market and then returns home to rest, read and eat an apple. The recipes are include in the book.I like this story because it shows the process someone who owned an orchard might have to go through to make items out of fruit and sell their produce.I would use this book with Pre-K to 1st grade students to talk about farming and staying healthy. It would be a great opportunity to teach some cooking skills with the recipes in the book.

It's not the best, most wonderful book ever, but it's not bad.It has simple text and simple artwork, and is well-suited for toddlers, preschoolers, and young school-aged children.I especially like the recipes in the back. I *always* like recipes in the back :)

I bought this book for one of my nieces. I really liked the colorful illustrations and the fact that she was a girl and a farmer. I also liked that the book takes you through all the steps of growing the apples harvesting the apples using the apples to bake and cook with and taking the apples and baked goods to the market to sell. I'm a teacher so I liked the educational aspect of that. The book also includes recipes. It turns out my niece loved the book so I bought two more copies to give to my other two nieces for Christmas and another copy for my son when he's a little bit older. He's only 16 months so its a little old for him now. In terms of age ranges I would say probably 3 to 6 would be an appropriate age range for this book.
