Share Article

Applesauce charmingly relates the story of how apples grow in orchards and introduces young readers to Jonathan & friends. As Jonathan anticipates falling from his parents’ branch, he prepares for his future by deciding what he wants to be...apple pie, apple cider, or his first choice…Applesauce!

Applesauce, Howard's first children’s book, was inspired by visits to a family apple orchard and the time she spends making applesauce for her grandchildren.

Applesauce is released by author Diana Howard.

When Jonathan was born, his mother declared him to be the handsomest apple on the tree. His father bragged about how strong and healthy his little blossom was. As spring becomes summer and summer becomes fall, Jonathan learns how to be a big apple and fall from his parents’ branch.

Colorful watercolor illustrations by Michael Morrow bring this delightful story of a favorite fruit to life. Children will easily relate to Jonathan’s thoughts and feelings. Parents and teachers will appreciate the life’s lessons that Applesauce offers.
