I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for quality books for my kids. I love stories that not only

enchant my children with charming characters, but stories that have the ability to teach valuable lessons. Diane Shapley Box’s books Apples for Fred, and Tator’s Big Race do just that. She combines beautiful illustrations with heart-warming tales of teamwork, perseverance, friendship, problem-solving, and the importance of believing in yourself. In her books, you’ll meet delightful characters such as Fred, Tator, Perdie, and Cabbit.

Apple Pie Publishing, LLC,  is committed to producing high-quality American made books and products. All products are produced in the USA and use lead-free ink and paper. Apple Pie Publishing, LLC is active in the community, donating not only time, but thousands of dollars for medical research and general fundraising. Apple Pie Publishing, LLC donates a portion of all profits to local and national charities. The company produces the charming Apple Bunch Book Series.

Diane Shapley-Box graduated from the Art Institute of Dallas. She has worked as a concept designer and as a professional artist. Her work has been featured in books, magazines, and newspapers. She is an award winning artist, and her books have received rave reviews from parents, teachers, and children.  A true philanthropist, Diane  and her publishing company, Apple Pie Publishing, LLC, not only donate 10% of all proceeds from the sale of Apples for Fred to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, but sponsor a book drive for the USO. Head on over to her website Apple Pie Publishing and find out how you can contribute to this phenomenal cause.
