The Red Apple

The red appleOn a cold winter’s day, Mouse, Rabbit, Fox, and Bear all want to eat a lone red apple hanging from a tree. Working together, they are able to reach the fine ripe apple, but then Fox sneezes and they all tumble into the snow only to discover that the fruit has fallen to the ground. So, they carefully split the big juicy apple into four pieces and eat it for dinner. This tale about problem-solving and cooperation, with its gorgeous, realistic watercolor paintings, will remind readers of Eric Rohmann’s Caldecott Medal-winning My Friend Rabbit (2000).  mjw
