Teaching your students about apples soon? I have a list of some of my favorite books about apples just for you!
This book, How Do Apples Grow?, is one of my favorite apple books. It’s a board book, but I think elementary students would like it too. I actually checked it out with my three year old because he loves the “Hello World” books and I loved how much information was in such a small book.
Gail Gibbons is normally my go-to when I’m looking for non-fiction picture books. I love how many facts are presented in her books, but also that it’s a picture book. Apples is another great one!
This book, Johnny Appleseed, tells about his life. It is about how he grew up as a young boy who loved the outdoors into a man who spread apple seeds across the country.
Apples For Everyone is part of the picture book series, Picture The Seasons. It gives a great close-up of apples with its beautiful photographs.
This is another picture book presented with factual information. How Do Apples Grow? is a perfect primary text with short simple sentences. Students will love learning about apples with this book.
