Thank you for visiting our project.  We welcome your comments.  Please send them to

All of you who participated in this wonderful project have discovered the real secret of the Internet -- the potential it holds for people to work together to make our world a better place. Your work will contribute to the learning that takes place in many other classrooms around the world.  It looks like win, win, win to me! That Susan Silverman is sure something!

As a real apple "nut", I have three trees I cherish each year from pruning them in March to harvesting them in the fall  (Braeburns, Empires, Red Delicious),  I really enjoyed your celebration of this wonderful part of our cultural heritage.  Clearly you are all highly skilled pomologists! (Now there's a new word for your vocabulary!) 
Best wishes for continued success in your important work!

Apples, Apples everywhere and not a one to eat!
I think I'm going to have to run out to our local apple orchard and pick a few!  I really enjoyed seeing all the great resources Susan Silverman has created for young children.  The project looks amazing and I can't wait to come back and see all the student work!

What a wonderful site! The poems are such fun to read. And I love those little green worms - simply adorable!
Keep up the good work, Mom!
