In simple words and pictures, a young girl describes the life cycle of the apple-from tiny seed to tree; from beautiful blossom to juicy apple-and expresses her gratitude for this small but wonderful miracle of nature.

PreSchool-This slight picture book about the wonders and development of an apple has not made a good transition from German to English. The writing is stilted and misleading: the pip "wakes up" and is an apple tree in "a few years." The subtitle refers to a moral bit tacked onto the end of the text almost as an afterthought. It's too bad, because the illustrations are fresh and effective. They appear to be done in acrylic with torn-paper collage. Different kinds and colors of apples are beautifully and realistically rendered, as are the crows that come to nibble at them. Close-up cross-sections of the fruit are dramatic and informative. Animals, birds, and insects are shown as it appears and changes. There are so many other good picture books about apples, including Gail Gibbons's The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree (Harcourt, 1984), that this one is unnecessary.
