Aiden enjoyed this more than I thought he would. I think it was the bright colors that kept his attention.
I feel like this picture book expanded my mind a little, with all the ways a boy can love and use an apple tree. I adored reading this to my son! He liked it too.

SUMMARY: The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons is about the four seasons, based around a boy, Arnold, and his apple tree. Each page has some kind of information other than the season, from an apple pie recipe to pictures of the apple blossoms.

NY, Harcourt, 1984This book about seasons is another great one by Gail Gibbons. The seasons are clearly explained through the explorations of the boy Arnold. I would have fun using this for kindergarten and first grade as a literacy addition in teaching about the changing seasons. The bold illustrations show Arnold having fun with the tree as it changes throughout the year. It has great visuals showing what happens as nature changes; I would have students point out what they notice as I read. It...

I just picked this up via an online sale. I'm always looking for great kids picture books that relate to a science topic. This is a lovely story about Arnold and his apple tree. And what he does each season with his apple tree. Watching bees in the blossoms , making a tree hut and eating the unripe apples, picking the ripe apples and making pie and cider, decorating apples for Halloween, setting up food for the birds in winter and coming back in the spring to start it all again. Lovely pictures

I loved this book. Its a great book to read when teaching the seasons. I love how it had little side information, like facts on how to make apple cider and apple pie. This book is very imformational and very realistic. I loved the illustrations and would like to have this book in my own classroom.
I like to bring this out at the beginning of the school year, when they talk about apples in class. But the boys pull it out periodically. It's fun to talk about which season we're in when we read it.
This is a colorful book depicting each of the four seasons through an apple tree. It gives children a glimpse of what each season looks like as well as activities and holidays that occur during each season. Great for younger elementary students and learning about the seasons and/or weather!
I had never read a book by Gail Gibbons, but I really enjoyed this and I do plan on getting some of these books for my class room. They are simple text, but have everything a good book should have for nonfiction literature.
This was a very sweet book! I loved reading it to my kindergartners, because it taught them the seasons of the year. It also taught them the stages an apple tree goes through. I enjoy that this book could be read to students any time of the year!
I liked the seasons of the tree and explaining the cycles of the tree. I really liked how Arnold made his own tree house... but, and I know this is a bit ridiculous; I just didn't like the shape of the apple tree. It bugged me. That's it!
This story was a about a boy named Arnold and his apple tree. The book goes through all the seasons and what particularly happens during these seasons to the tree. This would be a good tool for students to learn about season change and what occurs in each one.
descriptions about how to make a pie and juice apples were helpful and fun
This book can be used to teach seasons or trees. However, I was not a fan of the illustrations or the wording, I found it rather boring but it does it's job.
I like to bring this out at the beginning of the school year, when they talk about apples in class.
This is pretty retro, but Marzieh loves it.
This is a good science literature book to teach children about the four seasons. It shows differences in the trees and it is a very good book to read.
This book can be used in K-1 grade classrooms on lessons about seasons and weather changes. This book can be used for the Engage section of a 5 E's lesson plan
Informational, seasons, used in the beginning of the year or with a plant unit
This book was pretty good.I read this to my class when we talked about apples. It was a nice book that talked about trees and seasons. Nothing super special, but it worked for me!
