Applesauce Weather

applesauce-weatherWritten by Helen Frost, Illustrated by Amy June Bates

Faith and her brother, Peter, live in the country and every year when the first apple falls, they know they’ll get a visit from Aunt Lucy and Uncle Arthur. But this is the first year without Aunt Lucy. Will Uncle Arthur come without her? Will their family tradition of storytelling, apple picking, and applesauce making come to an end?

This is a beautiful story (told in verse) of love and loss, family and traditions.

  1. It’s good to see a book on this subject at only 100 pages. Younger children need books dealing with grief and loss.
