Kirkus Reviews

“Friar’s drawings perfectly fit the topic. Details are rich and the colors are just right for autrum apple-picking days. . . A great new addition to an overstuffed field.”
Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

“The realistic illustrations are soft with autumnal colors and show the process that results in that glass of cider. Although listed as fiction, there is more straightforward information than story. The addition of the children makes this book more personal for young students. A useful purchase for most collections.”
School Library Journal

The Horn Book Magazine

“The autumnal palette gives a warm and welcoming tone to the topic. ‘Cider Lore’ is appended.”
