My daughter absolutely loved this book and has asked me many times to read it to her. She is very picky about what books she likes and this is one of her favorites.

Very sweet story of the Apple family with the underlying message of selflessness amongst family members. All family relationships (husband and wife, parents and children, etc) all benefit from not being selfish. You can see the circumstances throughout the story where all the family members give a little to make the other(s) happy.

Review also from my 10 year old daughter: This book was very well written and funny. I especially enjoyed when Mr. Apple gave all of his children apple names. I can’t wait to get more books from the Good and the Beautiful library!

My boys loved listening to the story as the Apple family expanded, each of the children received apple names and followed their adventures as they moved out to the country. You know it’s a good story when they ask if there are any other stories about the Apple family.


I'm so happy to find this again!

I have an old copy of this book. There isn’t even an ISBN number on it (I realized that when I tried to find and buy it a few years ago.) Our book is falling apart, so when I saw it for sale here I was so happy! This is the sweetest little story of a cute family. I loved reading it as a girl and my girls love it now.

Level 3

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.
