Bound to be useful for projects, this attractive picture book for older readers contains a lot of loosely related facts and is generously illustrated. Micucci covers apple tree growth from seed to harvest and the uses and varieties of the popular fruit. Each topic (seeds, grafting, etc.) is given a two-page spread. Small, clear paintings are paired with each easy-to-understand short paragraph or even illustrate just one sentence. A rich harvest for students doing reports, or for browsers. --Sharon Levin, University of Vermont, Burlington
