Applesauce Season - Eden Ross Lipson and Mordicai Gerstein

You don’t have to live on a farm to eagerly await APPLESAUCE SEASON (Roaring Brook Press, $17.99). Around the time school starts, Grandma will say, "It’s time for applesauce." The weekly trip to the farmer’s market yields many varieties of apples to add to the pot. "There have to be at least three kinds in each pot of sauce for real flavor,” Grandma says. Together, the family makes all kinds of accompanying dishes for applesauce, as well as pies, cakes and plenty of apples to eat "out of hand." Mordicai Gerstein’s lively illustrations welcome you right into this family’s kitchen and Eden Ross Lipson’s seasonal story leaves you feeling very satisfied, although certainly craving applesauce! (But don’t worry, the recipe is included in the back.) Ages 5-8. –Jory Hearst
