My children loved this book! We would read it every day and still quote from it: "You can not stop our apple fun. Our apples will not drop. Not one!" Okay we are a strange family, but we have fun and this book is fun. Dr. Suess, excuse me, Theo. LeSieg had a genius for making poetry out of simple words, making his books easy to memorize and quote. Studies show children learn by repetition and memorization early in the reading process and I can recommend this book highly as a help for early readers.
