Comments One Green Apple

  • Leslie Lopez

    One green apple is a childrens book about a young girl who ia new to a country and goes to s new school but she is very shy. She feels like the outcast in her new school but after a field trip to a apple picking she makes friends and gets rid of her shyness. I think this book is intended from grades 3rd-5th because it’s a childrens book and it may be easier for 3rd graders to read. It may also catch their attention more because it has a pictures. I think it’s also intended for 5th graders be [...]

    Beautiful illustrations paired with beautiful text--you can't go wrong with this picture book aimed at 1-4 graders. It explores themes of isolation and belonging when Farah, the new girl at school who speaks no English, goes on a field trip with the rest of her class. Highly recommended.

    I love Eve Bunting.My mom's a retired school librarian and she adores the Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival. She's been most every year since she moved back to Mississippi 25 years ago. There are several book awards, one of them being the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. It honors "distinguished service in the field of children's literature" and covers the authors' entire bodies of works. Eve Bunting won in 2007 and mom was hooked. She bought all the Bunting books. This was on [...]

    Farah is new to this school and new to this country when her class goes on a field trip to an apple orchard. She is in the silent stage, listening and internalizing some words but unwilling to speak aloud. A girl in her class, Anna, sits next to her and introduces herself. On the field trip, Farah discovers that while the language is different and many elements of the culture are different, many things are the same. Dogs make the same sounds as they run and crunch on apples. Laughter sounds the [...]

    "One Green Apple" by Eve Bunting tells the story of Middle Eastern student's attempts at understanding American social customs, language, and interpreting school experiences on a field trip. This book seems tailor made for the classroom. The drawings by Ted Lewin have water color soft brush sunny look to each page, but the depictions seem more intended to convey a reality to Farah, our protagonist's, experiences with her school peers. Farah is on a school trip to pick apples, and we see how chil [...]

    As usual, I am a huge fan of Ted Lewin's watercolors. In this case, they are specific enough to show that the story is "real" but gentle enough to match Eve Bunting's vague omission of the name of Farah's home country in the text, giving the story a more universal air. I also that Lewin's illustration of Farah, likely painted in reference to a model in photograph, seems authentic, rather than a collection of stereotypes to convey the idea of a female Arabic child. Despite the lack of ink or penc [...]

    The short story “One Green Apple” written by Eve Bunting is about a foreign girl who struggles in a new country that she has just moved to and doesn't understand English. In the new school when they take a trip she makes two new friends as they go pick apples to make apple cider and she is happy that she made those two new friends. I think this book is best suited for 1st and 2nd graders because at that age they need to learn to help people fit in with everyone else. A parent might choose th [...]

This language barrier and her different appearance leaves her feeling alone, even among children her own age. Her class takes a field trip down to an apple orchard where they make cider. Farah picks a green apple, while all the others have picked red apples. When they all put their apples in the processor to make the cider, Farah realizes that her green apple has blended in with everyone's red apple, giving [...]

    In the story One Green Apple Farah feels what it is to be an outsider. This is demonstrated because people were laughing at her, things are new for Farah , and think of the positives in life. My first reason is that people were laughing at her. She did not care if people were laughing at her. Farah did not understand why they were laughing at her. She ignored the people that were laughing. My second reason is things are new for Farah. She does not speak eglish . She wears a khimar and the other [...]

    "One Green Apple" is about a forgein girl named Farrah that moved to the United States and wants to fit in with some students at a fieldtrip. She didn't know how to speak their language, which is English, but she can understand them. She wanted to fit it so she wouldn't feel so different. Even though she couldn't understand them she knew they were being friendly, and wanted to accept her as a friend. I recommend this book to be a children's book because it has such a interesting story to it, it [...]

    Simple, yet this book is moving, and able to reach deeply into the emotions and help one understand the small, fragile girl who feels tiny inside herself. Just arriving to this country, Farah wants to come outside of herself and connect, but she has several barriers. One; her dupatta causes her to stand out from her peers, and two; her language barriers keep her apart except for her classmate Anna, who reaches into Farah's frightened and tiny self to welcome her. Again, in this book the illustra [...]

  • Marta

    The problem with this book is its veiled ostracism. The story of a girl who finds a different apple than other children, which is received with dismay and surprise, ends with the girl's "blending in" with her immediate surroundings. Assimilation, however, very often leads to cultural effacement of the culture of "the other." The book only proffesses to tackle pertinent racial issues, in reality, however, it perpetuates discrimination. The story underscores the girl's otherness and instead of emb [...]

    In the story “One Green Apple” by Eve bunting is about Ferah student in a new country. I really enjoy this book because it shows that it’s not easy to make new friends when you can’t speak their language and the way they dress. Take me for an example I can relate to her because the fact that I couldn’t speak they language or understand what they say when I bearly came to the United States. So it’s not that easy to make friends at first but then we will. This particular book I would r [...]

    Eve Bunting's name hopped out at me at Half Price Books today, and I plucked this one out of the overstocked shelves never having heard of it at all. I'm so glad that I did! Immigration is a central focus that winds its way throughout our year in my fourth grade language arts class and this one will fit in nicely. Farrah discovers she has a voice in her new country and tries out her "outside-myself word" for the first time on a field trip. She sees that she is no different than her peers, which [...]

    A glimpse into an immigrant girl's first school day in her new American school.

    Moving isn’t easy, especially when it comes to fitting in. Although you might come from a mere different country, people will treat you like an alien, because fitting is easier said than done. I remember when I went to my first day in a new preschool, and I was worried if I wouldn’t be liked. In the end, there were some people that welcomed me, but some left me out, and barely noticed I was there. The narrative “One Green Apple”, by Eve Bunting, is a story about a girl named Farrah, who [...]
