Children's Book Tuesday - The Big Red Apple

Time for another Children's Book Tuesday!

We are beginning several weeks of fall books and activities, starting with apples, so we brought home this book from the library:
This is an old favorite of ours that we have checked out at least 2-3 times a year for several years. First for Dale, and now for Alan.

In addition to the story being very simple, easy to follow, and easy for beginning readers to read, the book is filled with bright, pretty pictures!
But even better than them being bright and pretty, they were all made from fabric and then printed into the book. They look so dimensional you'd think you could touch them. And even knowing you will only feel a smooth page, you still can't resist running your hand over those stitched rain drops, or the tiny felt apples!

Or even this happy little guy:
Stop by The Joyful Chaos for more great children's books, and be sure and wish Suzanne well while you are there... their new baby arrives later this week!

Oh, so cute!! We have a book like this, with the "pretend" stitching, and I love it. And, yes, I do run my hand over it, just because I can't help myself. :-)
