This book shows the practical side of life, how to work hard, make decisions, and solve problems. It’s great for a read aloud with discussion as well as having larger print and cute old style pictures for independent reading.
My daughter loves this book so much! She was raving to me for days after she finished it. She learned that you need to work for what you get and you can’t expect to get everything for free. I love the lessons it taught her and loved seeing her joy for reading come alive after reading this book.
This is a charming story of family life. The detailed black and white pictures on each page made this a great chapter book to branch out to thicker more “intimidating” books. I loved the simple lessons that we can’t always have our way, saving up for things we need, and families working together.
I don’t know who loved this book more, my kids or me! Such a lovely tale. But be warned, after one read you’ll be ready to move to an apple orchard forever!
My son adored this book, enjoyed reading it on his own and sharing all the details. He loved the larger print, also!
At the end of the lane was an orchard full of crooked little trees. The trees were all covered with little pink blossoms. They were apple trees. In the very middle of the orchard was a house.
The Apple family lived in the city, but with so many new little Apples coming along, their home was becoming quite crowded. It didn’t take long for them to find the perfect house in the country, but it required some ingenuity and cooperation to make it their own. Follow along with the Apple family as–with tenacity and some animal mischievousness–they achieve their dream of owning a home suited for their every need.
