Our Picks! for November:

Take a look at Youth Services' brand-new Our Picks! list for November 2008-- it features more seasonal books our staff enjoyed (and we know you will, too!)

And, here are some bonus picture books about our favorite fall fruit, the apple:

  • The Apple Pie Tree (E HALL): Describes an apple tree as it grows leaves and flowers and then produces its fruit, while in its branches robins make a nest, lay eggs, and raise a family.
  • Apple Picking Time (E SLAWS): A young girl and her family spend a fall day picking apples with others from their small town.
  • The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree (E GIBBO): As the seasons pass, Arnold enjoys a variety of activities as a result of his apple tree.
  • All for Pie, Pie for All (E MARTI): Grandma Cat bakes an apple pie that is heartily enjoyed by her family, as well as the Mouse and Ant families that live nearby.
  • Apples, Apples, Apples (E WALLA): Members of the rabbit family visit an apple orchard, where they have fun picking apples and discovering their many uses.
  • How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World (E PRICE): Since the market is closed, the reader is led around the world to gather the ingredients for making an apple pie.
