Little Boy loves books about numbers. I know I've mentioned that before. But it's true, and it has a big influence on the types of books we bring home from the library.
I actually checked out Ten Apples Up on Top, though, because I've been trying to expose Little Boy to more Dr. Seuss. Some Dr. Seuss goes over Little Boy's head a little bit, but this one was just right for his level.
The story is silly--it's about three animal friends who compete with each other to see who can balance the most apples on top of their head. The apples all end up on the ground by the end, of course. It's an easy story for little ones to follow, and kids can also easily understand the humor in the story.
