In rhyming verses, one animal after another neighs, moos, oinks, quacks and makes other appropriate sounds as each eats an apple from the farmer's tree.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ten Red Apples?

Kids love it  Mar 4, 2008
I found this book so annoying when we first got it but my kids loved it. My 10 month old would find it anywhere and bring it to me to read over, and over, and over again. Now that they are older they still love it! I need to get another copy because ours is so tattered from all the wear.
Cute apple story  Feb 22, 2008
This is a very cute repedative book. That is perfect for a bed time story or a lesson on apples or farm animals in a preschool classroom. My students loved this book, the more I read it the more they we able to read it along with me, until they had the whole story memorized.
My Son's Current Favorite  Sep 22, 2006
This is currently our son's (turns 3 next month) favorite book. Minutes before bedtime he says, "Red apple book time". I love the book, but that is probably mostly due to my son's enthusiasm for it. I also get the sense that he understands what is happening in the book (and story) to a level he hasn't understood books and stories in the past. But enough about my son, the book is wonderfully sing-songy, bright and fun. Great illustration and a lyrical text.
Fiddle De Dee  Jun 13, 2006
This is a classic counting book with the same "characters" from Pat Hutchins other famous picture book, Changes Changes. The repitition and the silly rhyme help youngsters learn to count and make the read-aloud extra fun.
Ten Red Apples  Jan 26, 2006
Ten red apples hanging on a tree
Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee!
Horse came and ate one,
chomp, chomp, chomp.
Neigh, neigh, fiddle-dee-fee
"Horse!" cried the farmer.
"Save some for me!"

Languagewise, this is a lively, rhyming book and as you can see, those were the only basic words used throughout the story except of course, each page would have a different number and animal that came to eat the apple. Definitely great for your baby and toddlers especially if you read it in a sing song fashion. Not only the young child will learn about the numbers, but also the animal names and the sounds of the animals. And since some of the words are repeated page by page until there's no apple left, this book is great for shared reading between you and your child. As your child goes into kindergarten, it is time to whip up the book again and learn subtraction!
