My 8 year old read through this chapter book in one sitting today because she adored it so much she literally couldn’t put it down. She’s spent all day eagerly recalling the details, drawing pictures of the story and preparing a book report for us. Nothing more wonderful than seeing your children fall in love with a good book.

I read this book to my second grader and she loved the sweet story of the Apple family and their adventures. The art was beautiful, the story was sweet and funny, and my daughter wanted me to keep reading at the end of every chapter because it’s a really enjoyable book. When we finished the book, she asked if there were any sequels. 🙂 This is a great family read-aloud or easy enough for a young reader to read on their own.


Love this book!

I used this as a “read aloud” book with my 5 year old. We both loved it!

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.
