Review

<DIV>"Appealing...Besides introducing letters and sounds, the book tells a simple story in rhyming couplets, tracing the adventures of a farmer and her daughter who take apples to a country fair." --Newsweek

"Ablaze with autumnal colors, all the pictures, whether framed or sprawling over the pages, feature characters having a fine time. Readers will, too." --Booklist

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By T. Patrick Mullen Ph.D. on September 24, 2000
Format: Paperback
"Applebet an ABC" not only presents the letters of the alphabet in an interesting story it also connects with letter sounds. The story line keeps interest with an apple and farm theme, but goes beyond the alphabet to include "hard" and "soft" C & G, and CH and SH and TH. This book is a must for teachers and parents aiming to help children make the connection between the alphanet and phonics.

"A is for apple as everyone knows. Can you follow this apple wherever it goes?"

Applebet is about two people going to a fair with a cart full of apples. Each page has an apple hidden in it for you to find (which is a lot of fun for kids), but it is really about the letter sounds. This book doesn't just go through the alphabet, at also uses "ch" "soft G" and others, which is very helpful for young children.

This was one of my favorite books as a child and when I started teaching I went hunting for my own copy. Unfortunately they're getting hard to find, especially in good condition and for the right money, which is a shame as it is such a beautifully written and illustrated book.
