Apples is a wonderful picture book that shares tons of information about apples. The illustrations help young readers picture walk through the book. There is a lot of text on each page and many young readers will need to have this book read to them. It is so worth reading with them even if it is only a page or two at a time.
The book shares how bees help pollinate apple blossoms, young trees are encourage to grow, the history of the apple and so much more. My son loves to know why things are they way they are. This book shared with him a bounty of information on apples. He really liked the history of apples the best. It discuss ancient Greece and Rome. JDaniel is really into that time period right now.
As I mentioned the illustrations are wonderful. Phyllis Limbacher Tildes pictures really illustrate what the text is sharing. I think you will really enjoy exploring this book.
What did we do to explore this book?
I used the same template I created of the math activities last week to create syllable cards with apple themed words on them. JDaniel and I sounded out the words on the cards and clapped the number of syllables each word has.
Then he put a paper clip over the number of syllables each word has. We had fun clapping and clipping. This maybe a style of task card that I make for him again and again for reading activities and other content area skills.
