KIRKUS REVIEW

Glowing new illustrations featuring a multiracial cast of children adorn this classic “Let’s Read and Find Out Science” primer, first published in 1960. Using plain language and short sentences, Bulla follows an apple tree from seed to maturity, introducing readers to leaves, flowers, branches, roots, and fruits—all of which are depicted in thickly brushed but recognizable detail in Schuett’s (Night Lights, 2000, etc.) outdoorsy scenes. It’s a staid but still useful introduction, and budding botanists will “Find Out” more from the two experiments and a short reading list at the end. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-7)
