Journey to Appleville

Appleton pens an incredible book that highlights the importance of multi-cultural acceptance and friendship. Six friends from a local neighborhood set out to find Appleville, a place where they are made aware of their ability to conquer their dreams! I loved reading this book to my classroom because my students represent many different cultures and backgrounds. The children in the book are all different but all come together as friends to accomplish the goal of making it to Appleville. The Appleville Fairy reassures them of their goals and that they can accomplish their goals. The underlying message of success and achievement, regardless of culture/background, is perfect! Children are encouraged to keep reaching for those dreams! Regardless of fears, the kids are encouraged to keep dreaming their dreams.

This is a must read for all children – the illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and the story is absolutely encouraging!
