In time for a trip to the orchard, the appropriately-shaped Apples, Apples by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld, illus. by Christopher Santoro, follows a family of bears as they pick fruit and enjoy a feast of apple-based delights. ""Apple cider warm and spicy, / apples sweet to crunch./ And just for today oh, lovely day / apple doughnuts with our lunch."" Santoro's illustrations are as warm and sugary as the cobblers and pies.
