The winter season is a great time to encourage reading as an activity and “Journey to Appleville”, (  written by Veronica Appleton and illustrated by Lisa Pangborn, is a trip well worth taking.

This book tells the tale of a group of children, all different in many ways yet united by their dreams of achieving their individual goals, who push fast their fears and encourage each other on a trip to Appleville, where magical help from the Appleville Fairy rewards their courage and persistence. This is an engaging story for adults and children to read together, made all of the more enjoyable by bright , creative and colorful artwork.
