I just love autumn, but not pumpkin spice like everyone else. My favorite add-on is peppermint. But apples, I love apples! Did you know there are more than 2,500 types of apples? It’s so crazy to think about. So, I picked out 15 of some of the best Apple Books for kids. Something fun to do is go get several from the store and do a taste test and see what everyone’s favorite is and why.
