School Library Journal - 07/01/2017 PreS-Gr 1—A diverse group of young friends (Yulee, Nick, Sally, Pedro, and Martin) go on an outing in search of ingredients with which to make an apple crisp to bring to the Harvest Festival at their community center. They travel to the apple orchard, where they meet Yulee's aunt Sara, who is a farmer. Aunt Sara teaches the children about all of the food on her farm, including grains, vegetables, chickens and eggs, cows and dairy, and, finally, apples. Afterward, the children stop at a grocery store to collect the rest of the items they need for their apple crisp (oats, brown sugar, nutmeg, etc.). The kids then follow the recipe directions and bake the dessert, compost the apple peels, and go to the Harvest Festival. Each section describes a different kind of food and where it is found; bold text at the bottom of the page provides more detailed health information and questions for readers. Back matter contains an easy-to-make apple crisp recipe and a glossary, and there is a table of contents in the beginning. VERDICT Primary grade teachers and parents will appreciate this positive story of the origin of food. Recommended purchase for elementary libraries.—Kate Olson, Bangor School District, WI - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
