The illustrations are softly done in muted colors of autumn tones. The text is very simple and short, perhaps this would be suitable for beginning readers as well...
You can make applesauce, learn the difference between colors of apples. Have an "apple toss" game or go on a apple hunt, make jack o lanterns. It's a great book to use for fall that doesn't use pumpkins strictly for halloween.
it is utterly charming and became a favorite for us. My daughter learned the book by heart, turning the pages and reciting the text as if she were reading it perfectly, from beginning to end, which was a very cute trick at her age.
There is no lesson, or moral, or theme...except that going out to pick apples and pumpkins with your family, and then coming home together with your harvest to make jack-o-lanterns and apple pie, is just about the most wonderful thing a little girl--or anyone else--can do on a beautiful autumn day.
If you have access, after reading this book, take the kids on a field trip. They would love to experience first hand what it is like to go apple and pumpkin picking.
The best part, this book ends off with some ways on how to use the apple and pumpkins. If you want, let your class come up with something new and as a group, make it together.
