Here I am, sitting in a motel in the Riverland in South Australia with some time to kill before the local distillery opens. 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 ...more
The storyline is also delightful. First the animal friends are competing to see how many apples they can carry on their heads. Then the bears chase them to get the apples. Finally, the apples are all shared and the animals ...more
Fun rhymes though!

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 ...more
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. 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 ...more
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 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. This book teaches children how to challenge themselves also, when those animals are trying to put the apples on their head without giving up trying. I like also the rhythmic and the sequence of this story too such as “Apples apples up o ...more
I think the counting is "too advanced" for my daughter at this stage. Not because they count to ten, but because it's quick paced and a lot of apples (up to 10 on each character) on a p ...more
LeSieg, Theo (Dr. Suess). Tenn Applies Up On Top! New York: Random House Books, 1961.
In this spirited and engaging counting book, a lion, a dog, and a tiger compete to see how many apples they can balance on top of their heads. 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 ...more

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. Time to get some more if this experience.
