    I loved the illustration of this book. All of the letters are connected somehow to apples but they are out of touch of each other. There isn't any story to follow although the same characters perform in the book. Instead of a story the author used facts to teach the letters in a effective way. I learned new things while reading this book for example what grafting means.

    Looking forward to autumn? Apples A to Z will be an enjoyable addition to the fall season for your family. It’s a delightfully cute variation of an alphabet picture book with lovable friends Fox, Bear, Pig, and Rabbit sharing experiences and everything apple. Every letter of the alphabet takes us through apple-related things and events, from “A is for apples” to “H is for harvest” to “Z is for zero” and every letter in between. With a few concise sentences, McNamara provides an informative range of explanations about apples, apple products, apple trees, and harvesting. At the conclusion of the apple alphabet are apple activities, fun facts, apple jokes, and a brief biography about Johnny Appleseed.What brings this book character and moves it beyond a simple alphabet book are the illustrations; the artwork gives this alphabet book a personality. The drawings move the reading toward a story of friendship, with characters and events portrayed in a ‘day in the life’ style for each letter of the alphabet. Parker’s artwork gives the lovable and expressive animals human characteristics in cartoonist style. Drawings are in deceptively simple colored pencil line shading with a cross-hatch technique. The foreground is made of distinctive lines, while the background shading is blended to draw the eye toward the action. Not all the words used in the text are simple, but they are accurate to the topic, and will need to be read aloud to younger children. Once the child hears the word, sees the illustration, and is read the explanation for the word, he will a better understanding and expanded vocabulary. Reading this picture book together could become a tradition and will be a wonderful addition to the autumn season and to family time. (Review also shared through the Indianapolis Southsider Voice)

    This ABC book is all about fall. Four furry friends travel through the book as they learn twenty-six different things about fall. Each page is related the alphabet letter and gives fun and interesting facts about the topic. In the back of the book there are supplement pages. There is a page about different apple activities readers can do with an adult. The supplemental pages also include apple jokes, apple trivia and information on Johnny Appleseed. It is an informational text providing facts about different things we see during fall. This book could be used to introduce students to a fall theme in the classroom. It could also be used in science to teach student more about apple trees and/or the process deciduous trees go through each fall. This book contains many different writing traits. One of the writing traits that was very evident to me was voice. The words chosen by the author were clever and creative, especially since each page had to relate to a certain letter of the alphabet. Presentation is another writing trait I noticed with this book. The illustrations on each pages were colorful and bright. The font choice and color also added to the overall presentation of the book. I would highly recommend this book for classroom teachers during the beginning of the year to teach students more about fall. The guided reading level for this book is M.

    When I received Apples A to Z, I immediately thought “Another A to Z book; my son is in second grade, and this is too easy for him!” Well, I was wrong. This is not just another A to Z book. It is full of facts about apples, from blossom to yield. I was educated reading this book too. Twenty-six varieties of apples are named, one for each letter of the alphabet! I had no idea there were so many apple varieties.As a parent, I loved that words like deciduous and grafting are introduced to younger readers, as they are words that do not normally come up in everyday conversation. You can take your child outside and show him/her the difference between deciduous and coniferous trees, and explain some of the other words in further detail too. This is not just a quick-read story; every page is a launching pad for further exploration and discussion.My child liked this book because he went to an apple orchard on a field trip, and this refreshed/reinforced what he experienced.This book doesn’t just end at Z, either; also included are apple activities, information about Johnny Appleseed, idioms, and jokes.I would recommend this book to anyone looking to expand on the typical A to Z variety of books, as this one is very well written and educational, and the illustrations are warm and detailed.

    Book Title: Apples A to Z by Margaret McNamaraShort Description of book: This book is written with cute, cartoon illustrations. This book focuses on apples and words that describe them from A to Z. It is a great read aloud to show what an ABC book looks like to little ones. There are many great vocabulary words that could be introduced to young readers.Focus: I would use Apples A to Z to introduce ABC books to my first graders. Teach: Read aloud the book Apples A to Z by Margaret McNamara. Tell the children that we will be working on creating our own ABC books over the next couple of weeks. Decide on a topic (could be pumpkins, or another theme depending on the time of year). We will create a class book together. Get the students ideas for words that begin with each letter of the alphabet regarding your topic. Spend a few days documenting their ideas on chart paper. When this is finished, each child could be assigned a page to complete in this class book (some children would need to complete 2 letters).Expected Outcomes: CCSS W1.2: Students will write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure.

    If giving apples to your teacher is a tradition to such an extent that apples have become symbols for teachers, imagine a whole book full of wonderful illustrations and amazing information. But the book will not just be great for teachers; it is fun for the whole family. The book has amazing information. That even as a parent I found it fascinating to read. The illustrations are amazing. The story is fun to read and can easily be read over and over again. At the end of the book is an awesome collection of activities and crafts. And on the V for Varieties this is a list of some apple species Apples a-z but at least one for every letter of the alphabet. This is a great book and comes with my highest recommendation. Read the review on my blog Book Reviews and More.

    The author took the idea of an alphabet book to a new level, using a single subject for the entire book. This was a fun read, following Fox and his friends as they make their way through the alphabet. I was thinking ahead, wondering how the author would describe the letters of Q, X, and Z. Every letter was a learning experience and the alphabet was reinforced again when all 26 letters were represented under V for Variety. Looking for one or two different apples at the grocery store would be a fun activity for early readers. The very bright illustrations are sure to make the reader smile. This would be a great book to enjoy at snack time with a plate full of apple slices.

    This is an awesome book all about apples.I like the illustrations; they're done digitally but the texture looks GREAT!Each letter is well represented and none of them feel like a stretch.You get to learn a lot about apples.I loved the use of X (you'll have to read it to see what it was!)and also V: for Varieties, where there's a variety for each letter of the alphabet.There's great info in the back too about making things with apples and even some Johnny Appleseed info.A really fun book!

    I actually read this book to daughter's kindergarten class this year. They absolutely loved it. The book has vivid pictures and tells something about apples for each letter of the alphabet. It also has a page that list an apple variety for each letter of the alphabet. The kids love the book and its pictures! This would be great to read to kindergarten or pre-k during the fall days, especially when talking about Johnny Appleseed.

    This is a really cute book. I like how it showed everything about apples. From the planting to the different things you can make with apples, it's a really good informational book. I like how they used animals as the characters. I think kids would really enjoy that. Also, at the end of the nook are some recipes, jokes, and activities that go along with apples. Liked that part of it too.

    Really loved this book!! There are great terms about apples that I learned from this alphabet book that I had never heard before. There are recipes for Apple stuff also in the back so that can be helpful too. It was a fun book and even with no story, I liked it a lot.

    I really enjoyed this book. It provided many interesting facts that I think children would really enjoy. It also provided really great illustration. I think this book would be great to read to lower Elementary levels such as Kindergartners.

    A good alphabet book (d is for deciduous not delicious, duh!) and a nice set of apple facts. Good to relate to apple season and going to the orchard and picking apples. Ahhh, I miss making apple cider.

    This book is full of information about apples. Each page has a letter and a word about apples (q for quarter, p for pie). I loved the illustrations and I learned facts about apples. I found a page that had an apple for every letter of the alphabet!

    An ABC book focused on apples. The pictures are cute and the facts are short, sweet, and focused. A good choice for kindergarten and first grade students.

    This book teaches kids ABCs with an apple theme.I would have my kids make a poem using words from the book.

    Solid alphabet book that looks at all aspects of apples, personified animals make it a little less "realistic" so even though it is nonfiction it reads somewhat like fiction.

    Could be used for different age groups. ABC portion is more basic while there is a paragraph description below for older ages.
