Apple Books

Apple CountdownApple Countdown by Joan Holub - A counting book that follows a preschool class as they take a field trip to an apple farm.  I liked that it talked about the different seasons of an apple tree as well.

Applesauce SeasonApplesauce Season by Eden Ross Lipson - follows a family through the process of making applesauce, starting with picking their apples at the market, to cooking it and then using it on all different types of food.  I was hoping to make applesauce with the kids this week, but it didn't quite happen!

The Apple Pie That Papa BakedThe Apple Pie That Papa Baked by Lauren Thompson - A story about a pie that a father bakes for his daughter. It is told in a "The House that Jack Built" pattern, and the kids really loved the repetition and building of the text.

Ten Red Apples Ten Red Apples by Pat Hutchins - A cute farm themed counting book.  Love the illustrations!
