Ten Red Apples

written and illustrated by Pat Hutchins

In rhyming verses, one animal after another sounds off as each eats an apple from the farmer’s tree.

Pat Hutchins’ brightly colored, stylistic farm animals romp through this sequential subtraction story. “Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee!” Listeners soon become actively involved in the rhythm and repetition. A bright red numeral beside a row of that number of apples at the top of each page strengthens the math connection.
