Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bold colors dominate Hutchins's (Titch) gouache paintings, framed in fire-engine red and featuring characters depicted as hinged wooden people and animals. The rhyming, sing-song text counts down from 10 as a succession of farm animals consume apples from a tree, beginning with a horse: "Ten red apples hanging on the tree./ Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee!/ Horse came and ate one,/ chomp, chomp, chomp./ Neigh, neigh, fiddle-dee-fee./ 'Horse!' cried the farmer./ 'Save some for me!' " For each verse, an animal takes its fruit, then moves to the right side of the spread, creating a cumulative visual effect. After the ninth animal helps itself to the tree's bounty, a sole apple remains for the farmer, but none for his wife, who hopes to bake a pie. In the closing spreads, the farmer spies another tree bearing 10 apples, setting youngsters up to start all over again. Hutchins's repetitive narrative, with its long vowel sounds coupled with crayon-bright toy characters, will invite audience participation and boost beginning readers' self-confidence. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-A concept book that blends rhyming, counting, repetition, and animal sounds into a charming, folksy story. Hutchins's trademark wooden figures-including the farming couple from Changes, Changes (Macmillan, 1971)-populate this delightful tale in which a farmer watches his animals eat bright red apples from the tree. "'Horse!' cried the farmer. 'Save some for me!'" When there is just one apple left, he picks it ("Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee!"). Then along comes his wife, who finds "No red apples to bake in a pie. Fie, fie, fiddle-dee-fee!" The farmer saves the day when he finds another tree and they fill the basket with "More red apples hanging on a tree." The bouncy singsong text begs to be read aloud. The rhyme is easy and smooth, with a catchy refrain. An added surprise is the appearance of Rosie the hen from Rosie's Walk (Macmillan, 1968). The gouache paintings are bright and clear, and the palette includes many colors beyond the primary tones of red, blue, and yellow. There is a cheery border at the top and bottom of each page. The endpapers show the happy couple counting apples from 1 to 10 and back again. A delicious selection from a master of simplicity.

Ten red apples hanging on a tree

Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee!

Horse came and ate one,

chomp, chomp, chomp.

Neigh, neigh, fiddle-dee-fee

"Horse!" cried the farmer.

"Save some for me!"

Languagewise, this is a lively, rhyming book and as you can see, those were the only basic words used throughout the story except of course, each page would have a different number and animal that came to eat the apple. Definitely great for your baby and toddlers especially if you read it in a sing song fashion. Not only the young child will learn about the numbers, but also the animal names and the sounds of the animals. And since some of the words are repeated page by page until there's no apple left, this book is great for shared reading between you and your child. As your child goes into kindergarten, it is time to whip up the book again and learn subtraction!

I use this book in my pre-kindergarten. The children love to hear the animal sounds and they are anxiously awaiting their part at the end of each page "Save some for me". The love being able to interact with the book. The story is very repetitive so it's easy to keep the children's attention.

Great counting book for younger children ages 3-6. Apples are counted one by one and illustrations are good in that they are step by step and easy to understand for a young child.

My preschoolers love this book and I do as well. Cute, cute pictures! The children love the rhyming and being able to interact with the story. Great for fall, apple themes and counting! A great book to use over and over again.

It is such a great and fun book to read that even though my daughter is 10 now, she still remember it, love it and want to own a new one. Also great memory of the time we spent together reading the book.

This classic by Pat Hutchins is a great book for interactive story telling. I have created a flannel board version of it and the children in my class love to retell it over and over again!
