Little Sweets loved the book. It is an easy read with few words on the pages, which is great for young children. The book also reinforces counting, great for preschoolers. After we read the book we painted apples on our own apple tree. I cut the top off of a water bottle and we used the water bottle cap to make circles that represented apples on our tree. I suppose you could just unscrew the cap and use it, but that would be a lot messier. Little Sweets doesn't always enjoy getting messy so I thought this would work well. Little Sweets loved this activity and she continued to paint with the top of the bottle even after she was finished with the tree. Here are some pictures of our art activity.
