Applesauce Day based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This story evokes so many happy memories of picking apples with my family. My children enjoyed reading it and reminiscing about all our apple picking adventures throughout the past several years. This book has quickly become a family favorite.
This book will bring back sweet, sticky, and tiring memories of childhoods spent canning and making applesauce. It also provides the suburban and urban kids a taste of what the countryside has to offer and where applesauce comes from. The gentle text and joyous images make a wonderful read aloud book, while skillfully and subtly exposing kids to science, plant science, cooking, and family traditions. The apple facts and recipe in the back further spur interest in apples and applesauce. For instance, did you know applesauce has been in orbit?
