The early counting book Ten Apples Up On Top! is a fun way for children to learn the numbers 1 to 10. Children can count along as a lion, tiger, and dog balance apples on their heads and try not to let them drop. Using only 75 different words to create the rhymes, Dr. Seuss has provided parents with an important teaching tool that combines both math and literature in this read-along classic. Rhyming is a perfect way for children to begin seeing word patterns, which is what makes Ten Apples Up On Top! a must-have for every child’s bookshelf.
Tie-in Activity: As you read this book, let your child stack blocks on the floor or a table to see if he or she can keep up with the characters. Very young children might only stack two or three—while older children might go past ten.
