Apples — Preschool Storytime

This week we shared stories about apples–troubles with apples, the shape and simple perfection of apples, and mystery apples.

 

Stories

Letting Go by Janet Morgan Stoeke:  Pip, Midge, and Dot are enjoying the shade under an apple tree when fruit starts falling around them, causing the hens to suspect a fox is in the tree trying to hit them.

 

Apples and Robins by Lucie Felix:  Using die-cut pages the story explores the shapes and colors of an apple tree through the passing of the seasons.

 

Ned’s New Home by Kevin Tseng: A worm tries out a variety of new homes when the apple he has been living in starts to rot, but none–from a lemon to a watermelon–is satisfactory.
