Good Messages can come in the form of a story. And for the sake of our environment and the future of our children, we need one right now. This is such a book! It integrates a bit of science and reality into a simple story of APPLE and his journey from the orchard. It introduces children to a glimpse of nature and the 3Rs that we long to teach them in our own environmental effort. With colorful illustrations, they will follow the adventure of APPLE from his days in the orchard and find out for themselves why he ended up where he was.

Book Reviews and Testimonials

Wee Ones Magazine

“An interesting story about Apple and what happens to him once he's plucked from a tree. Go on a journey with Apple and discover ways to help Apple live on. Instead of discarding him in the trash, composting is what this author encourages, as well as planting seeds to grow trees that will create more delicious sweet apples! With bright illustrations, this story is both entertaining and educational.”
