How Do Apples Grow? (Hello, World!)

by Jill McDonald (Author)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: Hello, World!

Young children love to eat apples. Now here's a Hello, World! board book that teaches toddlers all about how apples grow--from seed to sapling to tree to applesauce!

Hello, World! is a series designed to introduce first nonfiction concepts to babies and toddlers. Told in clear and easy terms ("Apple seeds start to grow when they are planted in soil and given sunlight, water, and fresh air") and featuring bright, cheerful illustrations, Hello, World! is a perfect way to bring science, nature, and culture into the busy world of a toddler, where learning never stops.

Look for all the books in the Hello, World! series:

  • Solar System
  • Weather
  • Birds
  • Dinosaurs
  • My Body
  • Backyard Bugs
  • Ocean Life
  • Moon Landing

"An added fact in a smaller font ('It takes two to three years for a seed to become a sapling') on each spread extends the usefulness of the book beyond the board-book audience. . . . Useful when apple trees bloom and again during apple-picking season."--Kirkus
