What to Read Link Up: Apple Books for Kids

Books About Apples

Visiting the apple orchard is one of our favorite late summer/early fall activities. It truly starts to feel like the seasons are changing when the apples are ready to pick! Whenever we head out on any field trip, we read books to enrich our experience and learn more about where we’re going. Picture books are an especially fun way to introduce concepts to young kids, and even older kids (and adults) enjoy the beauty and simplicity of a picture book..

When we visited a local orchard for a tour, the guide explained the different stages apple trees go through over the seasons. He also explained the vital need for bees to pollinate the trees–or else, there are no apples! We learned a lot from our guide, but reading some books before going helped my kids ask some good questions.

We are sharing some of our favorite apple books below. If you have any to add to our list, please let us know!

Happy Reading (and apple picking)!

    This is so cute and fun for kids! I love the apple theme that goes with the book. We really need to put this one on our list for our students to read. They would have a lot of fun with it.

    This is a great list of books my kids would love to read. My son keeps asking for Apple pie so this would be perfect to go along with it. Pinning this!

    Those are so fun! We are about to start a small (homeschool) pre-school program this fall, so these books will be perfect for our “A” week!

      That sounds wonderful, Megan. We did a letter of the week theme when my kids were little. Fun!

    I can’t wait to go apple picking. We go every year to a local orchard and get more than we can carry. It could get interesting this year, now that we’re gluten free. Have to change up my famous pie crust. I’m sure I can still make it good with an alternative flour. mmmm

      I’ve seen some gluten free recipes on Pinterest using apples. Some of them sound good. Here’s a gluten free apple crisp that looks delicious: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/68117013090909813/

    So excited for this list! I am doing theme months for our homeschool this year, and was planning on having “apples” as the theme for September. Yay!

      Oh, good! I’m happy it will help. We’ll be doing a different theme with this link up each week, so stay tuned! I hope you’ll gather some helpful ideas. I love the idea of theme months for homeschool. I’ll bet your kids are having a blast!

    I used to camp up in the mountains of NC for Thanksgiving each year and had an apple orchard I’d hit each time – bringing back bags of all sorts of apples was the greatest! Hope you have a great week!
