Ten Apples Up On Top! written by theo. LeSieg and illustrated by Roy McKie is a great book to include in theme weeks about apples, fall, and the farm.
This is a great book for counting practice as well as rhyming vocabulary words. Young preschool students can hear the story read on video and count the apples on each page. They can hear the rhyming words all along in the book.
