This is a really cute and fun book to read and the illustrations are adorable. All of the metaphors make this book more fun to reading. I like that the author used similar language that was used during that time period. I didn't rate this book as high just because I don't think students would get much out of it besides it just being a fun book to read. ( )

This book was a cute historical fiction story about a family that trekked all the way from Iowa to Oregon, bringing a cart full of apple trees and other fruits that their father could not bear to part with. It is a long and difficult journey and requires the entire family's help to save the plants along the way. Delicious, the main character, is a strong and determined young girl who works hard to help her dad take care of their plants as they venture through tough conditions. The story is told in a silly and playful tone to share the narrative of this family's journey. This would be a good read for young kids to learn a little about pioneer life, while still keeping the story fun and light. ( )

Apples to Oregon is about a young girl named Delicious. Her family crosses the country from Iowa to bring Apple trees to Oregon. She talks about their journey to Oregon and all the hurdles they come across. In the end, Delicious and her family make it to Oregon and make a fortune selling apples in Oregon.
This book has a good storyline and is entertaining to read. ( )

This story is about a family moving to Oregon with all the fruit trees. It tells of all the rivers they had to cross, the dessert, the hale storms. But the apples made it through it all. This is a great social studies book because it talks about the Oregon trail, which was a major part of our nations history. Great read, I highly recommend. ( )

Delicious' father is a pioneer who grows apples, peaches, pears, plums, cherries, and grapes. Delicious' father and her family set out on a journey across the plains to travel from Ohio, to Oregon for a better life selling their precious fruits. During their journey they encounter a few bumps in the road. Delicious was the oldest so she oversaw helping Mamma with the other children and helping her dad when he needed help. Their first bump in the road was when they needed to get their trees across the Platte River. They had a close one when their raft almost sank with all their precious fruit trees on it. They managed to get across the river and then a sandstorm came and was throwing all their belongings around in the air and across the plains. Finally, the storm passed, and they were able to continue their journey. Not long after they reach their next encounter with mother nature, they could not find water for their precious fruits and they were going to wither away without water. Delicious knew she had to do something about it, so she set off to find water. Along her search she found their missing pots and pans and belongings that the sandstorm blew away. In those pots and pans were water! Her daddy was so relieved that his plants were going to make it. Now to set off again on their journey, they floated the trees on boats down the Columbia river near Portland. At least they were finally on Oregon soil, time to finally plant these trees at last! They finally were where they were meant to be, and when everyone else ran off to California to find gold, they were content right where they were. They had their fortune with their fruits, and they all lived happily ever after with their fruits. I can relate to Delicious in a few different ways. Growing up I was the oldest also, so that meant I was always the on to help my parents, especially my mom because she is hearing impaired. When my dad was off working, I was my mom's ears and had to communicate for her. Just like Delicious I too had an important role in my family. Growing up I was also stuck to my daddy's side just like Delicious. I always wanted to help him do things and learn new things from him. In many ways I can relate to Delicious, but I think that she was brave helping her family move across the plains from Ohio to Oregon and facing those many different obstacles that they had to face. She faced them, and helped her family overcome every single one. ( )
