September Book of the Month: Apple Trouble

Apple Trouble 
by Ragnhild Scamell Illustrated by Michael Terry

Little hedgehog was lovely preparing his nest for the upcoming winter when suddenly an apple falls on him and gets stuck on his prickly back.  He looks for help to several friends but finds himself getting even more items stuck on him! Luckily, a goat friend comes to the rescue. This book has adorable illustrations that help tell the silly tale of little hedgehog and his sticky situation.  

Little Apple Tree Craft
Fall is the perfect time for apple picking and apple inspired crafts.  Try this one out from Reading Confetti . It is a standing tree made from a paper roll, green tissue and red paint.  This short list of supplies makes a fantastic little apple tree.  Step by step instructions are found here

Little Hedgehog Leaf Craft
Collect fall leaves with your preschooler and make this little guy.  You can even craft a cute little apple from red and green construction paper to convert this little hedgehog into the one in the story.  Learn how to make this craft at Krokotak.  You will also find a free printable for the body of the hedgehog there.
