National Geographic Kids: Apples and Pumpkins Pack
Celebrate your favorite fall foods with these colourful photographic books.
Apples for Everyone
Apples! The very word conjures up images of fall: ripe red apples falling off the tree as the leaves begin their glorious extravaganza of color change, baskets of gathered fruits at the foot of laddered orchards, and the rich aroma of an apple pie cooling. As school starts again, an apple for the teacher is a time-honoured tradition. Apples are coated in candy or caramel to celebrate the end-of-year holidays. They are crushed into cider to keep us warm around a fire as summer slips away and the first hint of frost chills the darkening nights. In this beautifully produced book, apples are more than just fruit, they are iconic of everything fall.
Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie
Pumpkins! Who can resist the sight of big, round, orange pumpkins ripening in a field? Children piling off school buses to pick one out. Carving out funny faces, smiles, or scary frowns to illuminate Halloween doorsteps. Making room for that last piece of pumpkin pie after a delicious Thanksgiving feast. In this book, pumpkins aren't just a fruit, they're a symbol, a scent, a flavor of the entire season.
