    What better story premise than three animals trying to best one another with apple stacking, only to have the town try to plot their defeat? This Beginner Book does just that, with three friends trying to stack one more apple atop their heads to best the others. When they both reach ten, others are out to get them and have one goal in mind: knock off them there apples. It's a race around town as these three seek to keep their ten apples from toppling, but someone will soon knock over the apple c What better story premise than three animals trying to best one another with apple stacking, only to have the town try to plot their defeat?

It's a race around town as these three seek to keep their ten apples from toppling, but someone will soon knock over the apple cart, literally. Neo enjoyed reading this story to me, practicing his reading and counting, all as the plot thickened. A great book for the independent reader who wants to show off their skills.

    I have read every Dr. Seuss book out there and have loved all of them, but this one gets extra kudos, because not only did it help my daughter learn how to count, it also encouraged her love of books! This was one of her absolute favorites as she was learning how to read all by herself and she read it repeatedly. The illustrations by Roy McKie are adorably simple, great book!

So, I did what I normally do when I have some time to kill and that is read a Dr Seuss book, and this was the one that was at hand. So, we have three animals, a lion, a tiger, and a dog, who are having a competition to see how many apples that they can balance on their heads. Well, as you can probably guess, they manage to get to ten, but they don’t seem to push it any further than that. Well, I guess it might have something to do with annoying the people around them, because all of a sudden we have a bear with a mop chasing them out of the house, and some birds who are attempting to get a free meal. Well, this is your typical, and rather enjoyable, Dr Suess book. Yeah, it is nonsense, but he was the master of the nonsense rhyme, but not only that, but once again he shows his ability to create a beautiful poem, and one that can be appreciated by children. The rhyming is done in a way that doesn’t make it sound corny, and the meter is nothing short of perfect. In fact, I wonder whether he should be included in the list of all-time great English poets. Actually, that makes me wonder whether I would actually get away with reading Dr Suess for poetry class in High School. I remember doing poetry back then, but for some reason, we always seem to go for the major poets like Shelly and Blake, among others. However, Dr Suess barely gets a mention, and honestly, he really should be up there among them. In fact, if you grab one of those compilations of poetry books you barely see him get a mention. Honestly, this is another reason why I would love to go back in time and redo year 12, if only to write essays on Dr Suess poems, and of course do art as well, just so that I could push the limits by presenting a signed urinal as my final project.

I probably missed it because he originally published it under his Theo LeSieg pseudonym. My son first discovered the edited board book version and the graduated to the full version in first grade. He in turn read it to his sister so now both children love it. Ten Apples Up on Top is the story of three rollerskating friends, a lion, a dog and a tiger and their competition to see who can balance to most apples up on top. As they add more apples their rollerskating adventures become sillier and more extreme, highlighting the absurdity of balancing apples on one's head. What I love abut Ten Apples Up on Top is that it's fun to read aloud but easy enough for early readers to handle by themselves. That means we can either join together on the couch for family story time or Sean or Harriet can read the book to themselves. Sometimes they even read it to me.

    The kids thought animals balancing apples on their heads was funny. I read this as a kid too. A silly story for bedtime. An oldie and a goody. Quaint pictures.

    You can see why Dr Seuss did this under a different name, awful stuff. Rubbish illustrations, poor rhyming and it makes the counting a bit confusing, with its repeating and sudden counting down. Not impressed at all so it gets 2*, I read this to my daughter, might get her to read it instead, see if the book has a better effect then.

    Book summary: This is the book I used for poetry. It is not an award winnign book but so fun to read. Its about animals showing the number of apples they can balance on their head up to ten. This book rhymes and has fun colorful pictures. Just such a joy to read. Grade level: PreK-1 Appropriate classroom use: I would like to use this book for two lessons. One for rhyming because it can be hard for kids to learn to rhyme, and another for counting. This book counts up to ten and down from ten. It w Book summary: This is the book I used for poetry.

Small group use: The students could point out which two words or so rhyme in each page. Then they could focus on counting and I as a teacher would ask them what number comes next? Something along those lines. Whole class use: I would read this book aloud and even try to have the kids say parts of the book aloud too. I enjoyed reading this book to this current class im in. Related books: Any Dr. Suess books! Multimedia connection: When I looked this book up there was a short video on it that would be nice to share. The video is a person reading the book aloud.

    Counting Book LeSieg, Theo (pseud). [Dr. Seuss]. Ten Apples Up On Top! (1961). This silly Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss invites children to count along as a lion, a dog, and a tiger compete to see who can balance the most apples on their head.

This silly Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss invites children to count along as a lion, a dog, and a tiger compete to see who can balance the most apples on their head. The competition escalates to a frenetic pace as the three characters decide to hop, skate, and drink while balancing apples in an effort to outdo each other. But with an angry bear on their tails, and a bunch of hungry birds after them will they be able to keep it up? In classic Dr. Seuss fashion, the silly rhymes and simple line illustrations with limited use of color engage and invite children to count and read along. The simple text includes many sight words and makes this a great book for beginning readers to practice decoding text. The images support the text so that when the lion states, "I can do three!" we see him balancing three red apples on his head that readers can point to and count for themselves. Lots of fun and very engaging, both in rhyming text and action packed illustrations, this book is sure to delight. Target audience: ages 2-5.

    I had never read this as a child and was pleased to find it. We first used it as an early reader, but it works great as a read-aloud for little guys too. The words are fairly easy and mainly phonetic or sight words. It's fun and has a good rhythm as well. This book would also work well for math - counting as apples are added and taken away, as additional people join, etc. I had never read this as a child and was pleased to find it.

    Ten Apples Up on Top can be a great book to incorporate into a counting lesson. It's an easier read because of the rhyme scheme, and the illustrations are colorful and attention grabbing. Students will be drawn to the story without realizing they are counting. I will have this book in my future classroom. Ten Apples Up on Top can be a great book to incorporate into a counting lesson.

    Second grade teachers used an animated video of this book to make the math lesson more fun. They used yellow and red apples to create different sums of ten. (Distance learning 2020)

    I still have various phrases stuck in my head after reading this last night. This book is silly and is fun to read out loud. I’m not sure why some of the characters care so much about what the others are doing that they would chase them. Not a favorite but still a fun read.

    This Dr. Seuss book is part of a series that’s designed to help kids to learn to read, but that also means that it’s pretty basic and doesn’t have much for an adult to take away from it. So yeah.

    Dr. Seuss never fails. This as a great counting book, but done in a silly and fun way. It introduces rhyming words and repetitive phrases. As usual, it offers amusing illustrations.

    Ten apples up on top 5-6 I like this book very much as it is very simple with very nice colors. This book is teaching the children the numbers 1 to 10 in a very simple and interesting way which is very good for children who just started to learn the math concepts.

Learning experience: 1-I can bring apples to the classroom and let the children pick any number they like to write it down on a piece of paper and then let them pick the apples based on what they wrote on their paper for example if one child wrote 4 apples on his paper he or she can pick 4 apples and so on 2-Print a boy or a girl shape and the apples of your choice. Write the alphabetical on the apples. Cut them out and laminate the pieces. Let the children put the boy or the girl on the floor and then have them put the apples on the head in alphabetical order

It's just too much going on. And... not interesting enough for me. So... sort of a lose/lose situation here. Even my daughter likes this one the least. She prefers The Foot Book or The Tooth Book.

When the competition gets fierce, they each show what they can do while balancing the apples: jumping rope, roller skating, and even balancing on an electrical line! After counting along, young readers will find out who will be able to stack "ten apples up on top" of their heads: will it be the lion, the dog, or the tiger? The illustrations convey the book's frantic energy by drawing its three characters in constant motion. Children will enjoy the book's simple, yet clever rhyming scheme. While many other counting books simply present objects for children to count, this book humorously delivers more: a plot, unexpected gags, and a surprise ending. Target Audience: 2-5

    I started with Oh, The Places You'll Go! then moved to reading other books from Dr.Seuss. Interestingly my neighbour's kid has also started reading one of his books. It was highly entertaining experience reading this book with him. When you I read the book, I had no expressions. When my neighbour's kid was reading the book, the variety of expressions he gave was simply superb to watch. Now I have a friend along with whom I can read story books.

    Though this is a very quick read, I enjoy this book. It brings in the aspect of counting but doesn’t present it like most counting books do. Most counting books would have a number be on each page and maybe show pictures of corresponding number of items that go with that number but not make it into a story.
