Ten Apples Up On Top!

 

Amazon Summary:

Three friends balance counting and fun in this silly Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss and illustrated by Roy McKie. When a lion, a dog, and a tiger meet up, they soon discover that they can each do different things while balancing apples on their heads. Whether drinking milk, jumping rope, or roller-skating, they can do a lot with ten apples up on top! But watch out, she has a mop! She’ll knock those apples from up on top. Seuss’s apple-balancing characters will have youngsters reading, counting, and giggling!

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

AJ’s Review:

I like the ending, everyone has apples on their heads. They add more apples to their heads. It’s a good book for counting, kids will like it. My favorite part is when they all go kaboom. Go to your library and get it.   

SO ANGRY….HIS WONDERFUL VIDEO DID NOT PROCESS CORRECTLY ON YOUTUBE. I DELETED IT FROM MY PHONE THINKING IT WAS ALL GOOD…SIGHS….AJ WAS CRYING. 

Mommy’s Review:

Another cute book that uses receptive words and phrases to help kids decode and read. While most of it is too hard for AJ, he has an excellent memory and comprehension skills so he enjoyed reading, making predictions, and talking about the characters.

  1. We have that book around here somewhere…the kids are really into Dr. Seuss right now, so now you make me want to go dig it up! The current Seuss favorite in our house is Oh Say Can You Say. Full of tongue twisters and typical Seuss silliness. It’s a bit much for T to read on her own, but the kids love it whenever I mess one of them up.

  2. I loved this book as a child. I vividly remember it. In fact, I think my mother still owns it… which is a good thing. So many happy memories…

Would love to read your thoughts
