Details: Product Description
Maria and her family visit an apple orchard and pick apples. Then it's time to turn the apples into applesauce! Every year they use the special pot that has been in the family for generations to make applesauce. First they wash the apples. Then Grandma cuts them into quarters. Follow each step in the process as everyone helps to make delicious applesauce!
"The exuberant, soft-edged paintings show a happy family working together, and the generational continuity lends an extra dimension to a simple story. Read this aloud."
"A cozy book worth sharing."
