Apples! The very word conjures up images of fall: ripe red apples falling off the tree as the leaves begin their glorious color change. As school starts again, an apple for the teacher is a time-honored tradition. Apples are coated in candy or caramel to celebrate the end-of-year holidays. In this beautifully produced book, apples are more than just fruit, they are iconic of everything fall.
This delightful look at the fruit of fall is sure to inspire a rich appreciation of all things autumnal.
