Crunchy, Crispy Apples are for you!

October feast is when all the baskets are full of apples red, yellow-green, light green, dark red ones, oozy apples ready to be eaten with caramel and chocolate! Apple pies are so yummy and  kids seem to prefer appla jam, too! Trying to find out books on apples and apple trees I got fascinated by the number of books written but mostly for the unique illustrations.Enjoy my “trip” to the apple fields and do reead as many Apple books you can during the weekend!


” Ten Apples Up On Top” written by Dr. Seuss, is used in class by the majority  of teachers. The themed learning activities are so valuable for young kids because make learning so much extra fun.


If you really Love your dog then you can walk out in the woods, along with the ” Apple Pie A B C”written by Alison Murray. I am sure your faithful doggie will relax and enjoy the reading! It’s an ideal book for 4 and 5 year olds with great words to  anticipate what is going to happen. Super Vintage illustrations to spend time looking at!


Here’s a whimsical and very useful look at the life cycle of the apple tree. “Our Apple Tree” written by Gorel Kristina Naslund , with two helpful tree sprites as guides, readers travel from spring, when the apple tree blossoms, through summer, when the fruit grows, to fall and the harvest. Along the way, you’ll learn about the life of the tree and the animals that visit – from insects that pollinate the flowers to deer that eat the fallen fruit.


“How to Make an Apple Pie” written by Marjorie Priceman,  is a perfect book  for older preschoolers who are getting a sense of the world since this book takes you on a ride around the world! You follow the little girl to Italy, France , Sri Lanka, England, Jamaica and back to Vermont! It must be fun teaching Geography while tasting crunchy apples!


O.K! I know, it’s all about apples! “Apples” by Jacqueline Farmer is a wonderful resource book. It’s packed full of details about how apples are grown, where they came from originally, varieties and much  more! I urge teachers or even  parents who homeschool their kids to have this book in mind!


Yes, you remember well, there is always a “Bad Apple” like the Tale of a Friendship written by Edward Hemingway. When Mac, an apple, meets Will, a worm, they become fast friends, teaching each other games and even finishing each other’s sentences. But apples aren’t supposed to like worms, and Mac gets called “rotten” and “bad apple.”It’s never easy standing up to bullies–but after a lonely day without Will, Mac decides he’d rather be a bad apple with Will than a sad apple without.



I hope you enjoy finding these Apple Books in your local library, read them while tasting a crispy piece of homemade applepie! Till next week’s Rock Post, enjoy and don’t forget the whipped cream! Apple pie, apple pie, I think I am gonna sigh!
