Applesauce Season by Eden Lipson. Applesauce season begins when school starts. This is a perfect read-aloud book with great cadence. A little boy tells the story, and he talks about different varieties of apples and how each makes a unique kind of applesauce. In the city, where this little boy lives, there are no apple trees, but the family goes to the farmers’ market to get the apples to make applesauce. The little boy tells how they choose the apples, chop them up, and then cook, grind and finally taste the applesauce. With the descriptive language you can almost smell the apples cooking. At the end of the story there is a recipe for making applesauce. What a wonderful way to help your child be ready to learn to read by making applesauce and talking through the steps involved!
