The September-October StoryWalk® book at the Delta County Fairgrounds in Hotchkiss is Apples by Gail Gibbons.
Discover the well-loved tradition of growing and picking apples – a fruit that has been in existence for about two million years. Explore the history of the apple but also the way that families and farmers grow and care for apple trees today, from planting to selling, to turning them into delicious treats and using them for classic games like bobbing for apples on Halloween.
Detailed pictures introduce readers to the botany of apples too. Experience colorful depictions of apple blossom pollination, the growth process of apples, and several panels of the different kinds of apples around the world. Learn how to plant and care for your own apple tree with step by step instructions. Then use the apple pie recipe also included to celebrate a job well done!
Find out how the story goes at the fairgrounds park in Hotchkiss. Then visit the libraries during open hours for books and activities to take home with you!
