Red apples are a popular symbol in early education, and Red Apple Reading is especially fond of them! Instead of sharing an apple with you today, we thought we would do one better and share 10 great apple themed children’s books. Just like the fruit, we think you will find these selections particularly enjoyable.
Mother’s Day is May 13th. There are very few callings in life as special as motherhood. When I consider my own stint in motherhood, I often think of the Gretchen Rubin quote, “The days are long, but the years are short.” Parenting is a privilege but it is not for the faint of heart. During those times when the day is long and the energy is waning, it’s important to remember that our children won’t be little forever. So let’s take some time to slow down, snuggle up with our kiddos and enjoy a good book. This week, in honor of all the moms out there, Red Apple Reading has compiled a list of children’s books that celebrate motherhood!
If you are looking for a fresh new way to reinforce math skills with your little one, consider picking up a book that works math into its story. While your child may balk at sitting down at the table to work math problems, he may enjoy hearing a story that engages him and encourages him to think critically. In fact, he may have so much fun that he forgets he is even engaging this part of his brain! Red Apple Reading thinks you and your kiddo are going to love these books that teach math skills!

Red Apple Reading has ten books to recommend for your family to enjoy together this St. Patrick’s Day.
