Which country in the world do you think grows the most apples? (The answer is China). Through vivid colorful photographs and simple text, beginning readers learn about apples, apple trees and everything that happens to them in Life Cycles: Apple Trees.
Did you know that it takes five to seven years for an apple seed to grow into a tree and produce its first apples? Readers follow a seed as it germinates, becomes a sapling and then a budding tree. They learn how buds form and flowers turn into fruit. A diagram on page 18 outlines the lifecycle of both fruit and tree, and more in-depth details about apples and apple facts are provided at the end of the book, which also includes a simple glossary (with words and pictures) and an index.
Other books in this series include Dandelions, Pumpkins, Strawberries, Sunflowers, and Tomatoes.
