Oh my gracious! This book was ADORABLE ! The story was not only cute (and BEAUTIFULLY illustrated), but it gently imparted good values like not always getting what you want but recognizing that other people have wants and needs too and that loving families work together and play together. My 8 year old daughter read this aloud to us and it was so enjoyable! Now the girls want me to make them dresses like the ones in the illustrations! <3

My 8 year old read it and liked the apple names and silly things the kids did. He said he was glad he read it. Thanks!


What a great example of parents and children working together and playing together.

This story is funny and endearing at the same time. I loved that throughout the book the Apple family did everything together (work around the house, projects, playtime). I also appreciated the message throughout the book that sometimes we don’t get what we want because we let another person get what they want. This was shared by the whole family. I highly recommend this book!

My daughter and I loved this book! After she was finished reading it for the first time, she asked if she could reread it anytime she wanted! She is 7 1/2 years old.

My son (7) read this book to me. He very much enjoyed the “apple” theme throughout the book and highly recommends the book to other children.

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 michievousness–they achieve their dream of owning a home suited for their every need.
