Why not read some stories about apples, too? Listed below are some easy books all about this fabulous fruit. You can find them in the Readers section in the Children's Department.

Hooray for Amanda & her alligator! by words and pictures by Mo Willems — Who can resist a book by Mo Willems? Not me! Here we find Amanda and her alligator friend, who is not that great at being patient but is tremendously talented at being hilarious and entertaining. The illustrations here are in Willems' trademark deceptively simple style and will draw you in no matter what your age. Don't miss this one!
