"Each autumn, Annie picks her apples, and sorts and organizes them. Some she turns into applesauce, apple muffins, apple cake, and cider. The best she saves to sell at the market. Happily, she sells everything and returns home to rest, read, and, of course, eat an apple. Charming and cheery, her story makes a great read-aloud. The illustrations seem to step right out of a coloring book with simple shapes, objects, and bright, crayon-box colors."
- School Library Journal
"A visually robust salute to a favorite fruit. Wellington has outdone herself with the bursting, ripe brightness of her illustrations. Many of the pages contain a little something to challenge young minds. There is sorting and counting, object-naming, sign identification, even a little money counting. Sweet and crisp."
- Kirkus Reviews
