Apple Picking Day

By Candice Ransom

Who doesn’t love to go apple picking at the first sign of fall? A sister and brother celebrate autumn with a trip to a local apple orchard in this simple, rhyming early reader. The kids bound with glee through the rows of trees, and race against other children to pick the most and the best apples. The story of their day is bright, fun, and full of light action.

This joyful rhyming fall and apples book can be used to celebrate the season and for building background knowledge for kids who have never been to an apple orchard before. It is also great for sequencing as well as for describing! Discover more of the speech and language teaching concepts for using Apple Picking Day in speech therapy below:
