Review by Meg Kapustay.
I love this book! I recommend this book for 1st graders & up.

This book is about a kid that has a best friend, an apple tree. The little boy and the apple tree play with each other all the time. The little boy swings on her branches, gathers up her leaves and make crowns out of her leaves, climbed her trunk, eats her apples, played hide-and-go-seek. At the end of the day, the little boy would take a nap in her shade. As the boy got older, everything changed and the tree would give anything for the boy to be happy.

Read this book and figure out what happens to the boy when he grows up.
