We discovered a great new apple book from Usborne, The Secrets of the Apple Tree.
Who lives around the apple tree? Shine a light behind the page and see . . . From worms wriggling among the roots, to birds nesting high in the branches, the hidden wonders of this amazing habitat are revealed.
We LOVE this interactive book from Usborne. My boys are huge fans of flashlight play and books, so this Shine-A-Light book was a big hit! Now, Lil’Bro (18 months) can’t sit through the whole thing and in true toddler fashion likes to flip through the pages quickly, but still enjoys shining the light.
I love how this book takes a different look at an apple tree. Instead of focusing on the apples, it focuses on how the apple tree provides a habitat for many living things. It shows how every part of the tree is important, from its base to the tips of its leaves. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you have a reluctant reading listener. Shining a light to reveal the hidden image is sure to keep them engaged.

I used to be an Usborne consultant too. We love “See Inside Your Body”
We just got the “See Inside Your Body” flap book to go with our science this year! My son couldn’t wait to look through it!
I am not sure if we have read any of their books or not but I love the looks of this one!
I know! Shine-A-Light…such a clever idea for a book!

I love Usborne books! I was real excited to see this new book! I teach preschool and it will go nicely with my apple theme. I love your website, too. Thanks for the great info.
What a fun book! Being a Usborne consultant would be so fun!
Cara, if you’re interested in being a consultant I’d be happy to send you some information! It’s been a real blessing to our family! You can see more info at my Usborne site http://www.greatusbornereading.com
We love How big is a million?
My son got the world atlas for Christmas last year and still looks at it almost daily!

My daughter really got into the Usborne books by reading a book called Danny the Dragon. She loves to see the pictures of other books in front and back pages. We have a bunch now.
I’ve not read any of the books. They look great!
We don’t have a favorite, yet, but my kids love to look for the little duck!
There are so many amazing Usborne books that it is hard to choose a favourite! We really love the fairy tale and activity books though – great ideas, illustrations and very entertaining.
I love Usborne books! We were able to purchase our first ones, mostly science this year at a used book sale!
Thats a very nice book.

We saw this book at the farmer’s market a few weeks ago. It is great!
We love it! I don’t know what they’ll come up with next, but I’m loving all these new interactive books. They’re so much fun.
