Apple Countdown by Joan Holub

Holub, Joan Apple Countdown illustrated by Jan Smith 32 pgs. Albert Whitman & Company, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $16.99. In this apple countdown tale, the students in Mr. Yee's class go help Farmer Applebee pick apples. Throughout this rhyming adventure, students are counting down from 20 to 1, sometimes using grouping and simple addition. It would be great to use this book to introduce those concepts to young students! The illustrations are bright and vibrant and apple facts are included on the front and back covers. EL-ADVISABLE. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
