    This is the second time the Children's Books group has read How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and I still can't get my library to fill my reuest So I read this companion Cute Probably effective Daydreamers for the win I just wish there were a list of even varieties of apples somewhere in it My local supermarket has Pink Ladies Braeburn and Cameo but I've never heard of Macoun And I really wish that something was said about the different uses that are best for each variety and the different tastes and textures some would not be used for cider others are extra tart etc

    The Apple Orchard Riddle is the second book in the children's picture book series Mr Tiffin's Classroom written by Margaret McNamara and illustrated by G Brian Karas which follows Tara – the daydreamer as she solves a riddle that Mr Tiffin her teacher gave his class during a field trip to the Apple OrchardMcNamara's text is rather simplistic and straightforward The conversational narrative lets the characters' personalities emerge especially know it all Elinor intuitive Mr Tiffin and daydreamer Tara who does things in her own time and in her own way and who eventually comes up with the answer to the riddle Back matter includes extra information about apples and orchards Karas' wispy and loose mixed media cartoons effectively portray the orchard’s operations and capture the camaraderie among the students and their teacherThe premise of the book is rather straightforward Mr Tiffin and his louacious students take a field trip to an apple orchard Before Farmer Hills gives a tour Mr Tiffin challenges the kids to solve a riddle Show me a little red house with no windows and no door but with a star inside The students absorb the farmer's explanation of the orchard's operations as they visit the apple storage barn cider press and apple peeling machine while considering whether these places might hold the key to the riddleAll in all The Apple Orchard Riddle is a wonderful book about the many different ways of thinking is valuable – even the daydreamers

    One lovely autumn day Mr Tiffin takes his students to an apple orchard He kicks off the visit by posing a riddle and as the students learn about picking apples and making cider they try to guess the answer to Mr Tiffin's uestion No one tries harder than Tara a slow uiet dreamy child the others often look down on She may not be uick witted but her special way of thinking could be just what the class needs to find the riddle's solutionAlthough books about apple orchards seem to be popular these days The Apple Orchard Riddle takes things a step further by including a puzzle for both the characters and readers to figure out The answer is not only satisfying but informative As a fairly main character Tara is likable and sympathetic and it was nice to see that her way of thinking can sometimes be advantageous The book also has an interesting afterword with extra information about apples The length may make it difficult to share with a class or use for bedtime reading but it is well suited for those who want a longer in depth story or are learning about orchards

    I love when books can teach a lesson Not just character building but occasionally you come across a book that includes a little thought and maybe a little science too Mr Tiffin is taking his class on a field trip to an apple orchard He has tasked his class with solving a riddle “Show me a little red house with no windows and no door but with a star inside” As the young class learns about apples varieties and picking and then later on to pressing and cider making Tara is deep in thought The classroom daydreamer that seems to try the patience of the overachievers Tara has taken Mr Tiffin’s riddle to heart and with each new experience she is turning over Mr Tiffin’s words until she has solved the riddleThis is a great book for teachers to add to their shelves Each fall as they head back to school and ponder how to incorporate science and art they can read this book and then have the students make apple prints to show off the stars

    It's off to an apple orchard for the youngsters in Mr Tiffin's class Not only do the children have the chance to learn about apples but they pick several and get to eat them They also must solve a riddle posed by Mr Tiffin To the surprise of her classmates it is dreamy observant Tara who figures out the answer Those of us who live in Washington State known for its delicious fruit will be delighted with the story and the gouache acrylic and pencil illustrations of apples including my personal favorite the Fuji on the end papers of the book There are even additional apples facts included in the back matter

    Teachers who cover the topic of apples will definitely want to get their hands on a copy of this book It delivers lots of information about apple varieties apple picking and the making of apple cider in the form of a satisfying story about a class field trip and the daydreaming student who to everyone's surprise solves the riddle posed to them at the beginning of their trip Show me a little red house with no windows and no door but with a star inside This one has lots of great applications for classroom use

    The Apple Orchard Riddle by Margaret McNamaraA review copy of this book was viewed from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewAs the students tour the orchard they learn a lot about apple production They are challenged with a riddle by their teacher that they try to figure out as they tour the orchard The children work through the riddle but none of them could figure it out They spend time learning how to pick apples make cider and all the different types of applesTara is different from all the other students in her class and seems to be in her own world She is usually the last one to get anywhere and doesn’t seem to mind being alone She’s smart and inuisitive and is the only one that figures Mr Tiffin’s riddle This book is fun and educational at the same time The children are shown the process of running an orchard step by step Along the way they are given facts about apples or asked uestions that make them think I love that Tara is different and that’s ok It may take her a little longer to work through things but in the end she will figure them out I think this is great because not all kids learn the same way and the book recognizes that and it’s ok The book is beautifully illustrated with nice flow Lilly enjoyed this book and still talks about the riddle We give The Apple Orchard Riddle 3½ stars

    Clever book that asks a riddle that the students on this fictional field trip must answer There are clues to the answer on each page which are great to review if students are unable to answer or even if they can to show supporting evidence in the text This is a fiction story but it is filled with factual information about apple production There is also an underlying text about a special student that is slower than the other children and how they react to her at the beginning and at the end She is the one who is able to answer the riddleYounger students will enjoy trying to figure out the riddle as well as enjoy seeing the different students and how they react to the riddle and the field trip experienceThe drawings are realistic and done in very subdued tones that reflect the feeling of the narrative very effectively One gets the message of being uiet and listening to the natural world as we do something such as a field trip

    Mr Tiffin's class goes to an Apple Orchard to take a tour of the facilities as well as what else they do at the orchard While they are there Mr Tiffin gives the class a riddle to think about while they are taking the tourWhile I would not recommend this book for younger kids I would recommend this book for older children ages 5 and up because there is a lot text and a lot to understand about the apple orchard and younger kids might not be able to comprehend the story as well I liked the information that was provided throughout the story and the illustrations were nice too
