apples mini bookDLTK's Educational Ideas - Print and Assemble Books
Apples Mini Book

contributed by Leanne Guenther

The mini-books are quite simple with images that should appeal to young children and simple, repetitive words that children in Preschool and Kindergarten children should be able to read themselves.  There is a more challenging version for early grade school children.

Feel free to make as many copies as you need (just don't sell them as they're meant to be free for all to use.).

Use our Story Sequencing Worksheets to complement the mini books (the same worksheets work for both books).
