A Different Apple Book

I recently received a copy of Nikki McClure’s book, APPLE, which is being re-released by Abrahms Appleseed press this year. McClure is a cut-paper artist and she first self-published this book back in 1997, making 200 copies by hand and selling them around Washington State, where she lives. She went on to publish books like Collect Raindrops and Mama, Is It Summer Yet?




The book is beautiful, telling the story of an apple’s life cycle using just pictures and minimal words.



Reading it to my own four-year-old son, I loved how the book’s simplicity forced both of us to pause over each page and talk, rather than doing our (my) usual plowing through.

It’s a beautiful book for a beautiful fruit!

  1. Whenever you ve made it most of the way through a book, you ll see a Finished button to mark it complete, and it s added to the Finished collection; alternatively, you can hit the ellipsis next to any title to open a menu that includes the option Mark as Finished. This menu is the same way you add a book to your Want to Read queue; as I mentioned earlier, your Want to Read titles are displayed in the Reading Now section of the app, or you can access them from your Library.
