Gosh I love this book!Three animals compete in the first half of the book to see who can have the most apples on top of their head. During the second half of the book, they escape an angry mob, happily collide with an apple truck, and end up giving the entire town ten apples on their heads as well. (What fun! Ten apples up on top! We are not going to let them drop!)This is a good book both for early readers, and for young children learning to talk. Very simple, rhyming vocabulary, of the sort with intuitive spellings (so much of English orthography is a mess...!)Please note that I do not recommend the board book version at all. They cut out the entire second half of the book, as well as good parts of the first half. In addition, the board book is poorly constructed. Just wait and get the real version instead.
This is probably the book that i read the most times when i was young. I extremely enjoyed this book when i was young because it was fun to read and it taught me math at the same time. When i become a teacher i will use this book to also teach my students math and to get them excited about reading.
This book was about a lion, tiger, and dog competing to see who can put more apples on top of their head while jumping, dancing, running etc. A few other animals come along and try to get them to drop their apples. This book is great for pretend reading for those who are just learning to read.
Animals compete to see who can balance the most apples on their head. The story is both funny and engaging. Lively illustrations accompany the text. Appropriate for all ages...
