There's something about September that automatically makes me crave all the apple things. This past weekend, we visited an apple orchard in my hometown since the weather was finally in the 70s and so pleasant. We live in the deep south, so there's not an abundance of apple orchards....and for a reason. There wasn't much to choose from, but we did leave with some apples and my oldest had an absolute blast!
These are the books about apples we used and still love! They would be great for your apple unit in the classroom/homeschool, or just for fun for your kids at home.
Apples, Apples, Apples, by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace - a fun story about a family going apple picking. The illustrations are different but awesome.
Apples by Gail Gibbons - seriously, Gail Gibbons is a nonfiction genius. She packs in so much information that's not too overwhelming for kids. I always learn something from her books...and I'm the adult, ha.
And now for the surprise! EM loved singing this song when we did our apple unit, she even sang it at the apple orchard. So whether your picking apples, baking with apples, or reading about apples, this song will be perfect for your preschooler.
