Great for toddlers.
This book is great for teaching the seasons. We used it as an introduction type activity for teaching the four seasons to a class of kindergartners.
'The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree' has been around a long time. Every school I've ever visited has several copies of the book and teachers say they use it in all their apple and spring and fall units. It's a simple, but lovable book that is one of the favorites.
