On a beautiful day in autumn, a mother and daughter go apple picking and learn all about making delicious apple cider.
Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and Fuji apples—you name it, the Cider Mill Farm has it! After picking, they move toward the mill, where scarecrows and pumpkins lead the way. Clean the apples (and don't forget to check for worms!), then watch as every apple does its part. Twist and press and squish and mash those apples to make apple mush!—then see the cider splish and splash.
And there's a cider festival—cobbler, fritters, pie—oh, my! But the mother and daughter's favorites are the scrumptious and warm apple doughnuts, which are easily washed down with fresh hot or cold apple cider!
In Chernesky's clever read-along, the details of apple season are revealed through fun rhymes and unique illustrations by Julia Patton. Little ones and their parents will love the simple flow of the story, seen through a child's eyes—starting with picking the apples to the end product of making cider. From Apple Trees to Cider, Please! is a lovely story about preserving and celebrating the fall harvest.
