Board Books About Apples and Pumpkins
In this Classic Board Book version of a perennial favorite, a young girl shares in the joy and excitement of the fall season.
“When red and yellow leaves are on the trees,” she goes with her parents to a farm where they pick apples and choose “the best pumpkin of them all.”
This board book edition of a beloved story is both familiar and fresh — just like a fall day.
The flaps reveal the creature that eats an apple in this board book that helps little ones count backwards.
An elephant, a rabbit, and a caterpillar are some of the hungry critters who take apples away.
When there are none left, a surprise awaits.
New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Tad Hills brings our favorite feathered friends out to find a big, beautiful pumpkin in this sturdy, large-sized board book.
Duck & Goose look everywhere for a pumpkin — in the apple tree, in the leaf pile, inside a hollow log….
Where will they find one?
Destined to become a contemporary classic, this book has spare text and sweet illustrations but contains only five words: apple, pear, orange, bear–and there.
Emily Gravett creates clever variations on this theme by rearranging the words — on one spread, a brown bear juggles an orange, apple, and pear; on another spread, there is an orange-colored apple and a pear-shaped bear.
Simple and compelling, children will enjoy reading this book over and over again as they learn many different concepts.
