Ten Apples Up on Top!.pdf
Since 1961, Ten Apples up on Top has been helping preschoolers learn to count and read simultaneously. Simple illustrations and even simpler rhymes make this apple-balancing competition between a dog, a tiger, and a lion a fun, easy place to practice sight words and phonics. Siblings can even take turns reading phrases like "Seven apples up on top. I am so good they will not drop." The inevitable tumbling crash is a great climax for busy toddlers to enjoy, and parents will appreciate the cooperative lesson the last page offers.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodore Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2,
1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a
career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the
Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.
Dr. Seusss first children's book, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street hit
the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random
House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined
engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach
basic reading skills.
Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his
way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In
the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the
author and illustrator of 44 childrens books, some of which have been made into
audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all
ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling
author of children's books in the world.
A lion, a dog, and a tiger are having a contest--can they get ten apples
piled up on top of their heads? You better believe it! This first counting book
works as a teaching tool as well as a funny story.
