It's spring and the flower buds are opening on a beautiful apple tree. Baby robins are hatching. On some days the rain comes down hard but the robins are safe in their nests high up on the branches of the tree. This is a beautifully illustrated book for the very young using collage, and big, bright images so if you're reading to a group, everyone can see the bird, the tree and the flowers. It finishes with information on how bees play a part in making the apples grow and there's a recipe for pie. The apples grow and grow and then autumn arrives and it's time to make an apple pie. We've grown the best part of the pie on our trees.
