Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.This series is perfect for basic introductions to science topics. Told simply, but with enough detail to present the topic thoroughly. The text is written in a narrative voice that is friendly while being informative. The pictures illustrate diagrams with lines pointing to certain parts being discussed and throughout the story the same orchard and family are featured. A perfect combination of text and illustrations make this an enjoyable and understandable read for all. This husband & wife team always produce excellent non-fiction children's books together. You can't go wrong when you mix The Maestros with the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science" series.

This is a book describing the life cycle of an apple. the books starts off from the apple being a bud on a tree to when it becomes a fully ripe fruit that you eat. This would be a good book to read when teaching about plants, and the parts of a flower, also the way fruits grow.

This book explains how apples are made, the reproduction of apples, and when they are made. The book starts off with bare apple trees in the winter, but stating that the tree is still working to produce new buds for apples to be made for the summer. I would use this book for a science lesson on fruit trees tying it in with other fruit tree books. I would bring in samples of the different sorts of fruit that we read about for everyone to taste and see. The book is great when talking about parts of flowers and how fruit grows from it.

The reader is told how apples grow from flowers, the seasons in which apples grow and that an apple is a fruit.This is a great book to introduce the seasons and how an apple grows. The teacher can intergrate planting a flower and watching it grow into the class activities to go along with the cycle of the apple.

Did you know all apples come from flowers? The cycle of forming an apple is so extensive. This book goes into detail as to how apple seeds are fertilized then to when the apples fall off the tree. This book would be good to incorporate into the science lesson, especially a lesson on photosynthesis because the book even explains how the sugars created from this process determines how sweet the apples are.
