    I have read every Dr. Seuss book out there and have loved all of them, but this one gets extra kudos, because not only did it help my daughter learn how to count, it also encouraged her love of books! This was one of her absolute favorites as she was learning how to read all by herself and she read it repeatedly. The illustrations by Roy McKie are adorably simple, great book!

    Came across this in a box of old books from childhood and flipped through it. All I can do is cringe at every page. APPLES CANNOT SUSTAIN BALANCE LIKE THIS, OH MY GOODNESS WHY HAVEN'T THEY FALLEN YET???? *cringe-sobs in the corner*Deeply unsettling.Fun rhymes though!

    The kids thought animals balancing apples on their heads was funny. I read this as a kid too. A silly story for bedtime. An oldie and a goody. Quaint pictures.

    Although I was a huge Dr. Seuss fan as a child, I missed Ten Apples Up on Top until my son started reading it. I probably missed it because he originally published it under his Theo LeSieg pseudonym. My son first discovered the edited board book version and the graduated to the full version in first grade. He in turn read it to his sister so now both children love it.Ten Apples Up on Top is the story of three rollerskating friends, a lion, a dog and a tiger and their competition to see who can b [...]

    You can see why Dr Seuss did this under a different name, awful stuff. Rubbish illustrations, poor rhyming and it makes the counting a bit confusing, with its repeating and sudden counting down. Not impressed at all so it gets 2*, I read this to my daughter, might get her to read it instead, see if the book has a better effect then.

    Book summary: This is the book I used for poetry. It is not an award winnign book but so fun to read. Its about animals showing the number of apples they can balance on their head up to ten. This book rhymes and has fun colorful pictures. Just such a joy to read. Grade level: PreK-1Appropriate classroom use: I would like to use this book for two lessons. One for rhyming because it can be hard for kids to learn to rhyme, and another for counting. This book counts up to ten and down from ten. It w [...]

    Counting BookLeSieg, Theo (pseud). [Dr. Seuss]. Ten Apples Up On Top! (1961).This silly Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss invites children to count along as a lion, a dog, and a tiger compete to see who can balance the most apples on their head. The competition escalates to a frenetic pace as the three characters decide to hop, skate, and drink while balancing apples in an effort to outdo each other. But with an angry bear on their tails, and a bunch of hungry birds after them will they be able to keep [...]

    I had never read this as a child and was pleased to find it.We first used it as an early reader, but it works great as a read-aloud for little guys too. The words are fairly easy and mainly phonetic or sight words. It's fun and has a good rhythm as well.This book would also work well for math - counting as apples are added and taken away, as additional people join, etc.

    still have this book from when I was a kid!

    Hihihi, ceritanya lucu >___<Ketika singa, harimau, dan anjing (?) berkompetisi dengan apel ❤(ӦvӦ。)

    Ten apples up on top 5-6I like this book very much as it is very simple with very nice colors. This book is teaching the children the numbers 1 to 10 in a very simple and interesting way which is very good for children who just started to learn the math concepts. This book teaches children how to challenge themselves also, when those animals are trying to put the apples on their head without giving up trying. I like also the rhythmic and the sequence of this story too such as “Apples apples up [...]

    If you like rhyming, counting, lions, tigers, and what I can only assume is a dog interacting with each other, then this book is for you! Well maybe, maybe not. I love all of those things, but I honestly make my husband read this to our infant at night because I'd rather read the otherDr. Seuss books to her. I think the counting is "too advanced" for my daughter at this stage. Not because they count to ten, but because it's quick paced and a lot of apples (up to 10 on each character) on a page. [...]

    Counting book LeSieg, Theo (Dr. Suess). Tenn Applies Up On Top! New York: Random House Books, 1961. In this spirited and engaging counting book, a lion, a dog, and a tiger compete to see how many apples they can balance on top of their heads. When the competition gets fierce, they each show what they can do while balancing the apples: jumping rope, roller skating, and even balancing on an electrical line! After counting along, young readers will find out who will be able to stack "ten apples up [...]

    As always I love the crazy illustrations. A great read for youngsters learning to count in proper sequence. The animals are very competitive in trying to out due the next animal while balancing more and more apples on their head. Things get crazy for a minute near the end of book but in the end everyone sees how much fun apples on top can be.

    All of my children have been obsessed with this book so I'm not surprised my almost 2 year old keeps asking to read the "apple book". We love it so very much we have a board book and a regular hardback.

    One of the dumbest things I've ever readever

    This book helps teach children how to count to ten. This book uses fruit they can identify with and it keeps their attention during the counting.

    My daughter got this book for Christmas. We've read it a couple of times since then. It's the one book where she can identify most of the words.

    Dr. Seuss is marvelously talented at creating fun books with easy rhymes to read. He's also amazing at defying the laws of physics whenever it suits him!ApplesSeuss

    Sara Hemenway
    Another one of my son's favorite books!

    A nice counting book that uses rhyme and repetition

    Classic Seuss uses apples, animals, and silly situations to keep track of those pesky numbers. Toddlers will giggle while learning counting. Used for Dr. Seuss Party at BPL-March, 2011

    We've been re-reading Dr Seuss recently and it had me feeling nostalgic for growing up with them in my own childhood. I was feeling kind of curious about how many picture books he wrote under the name Dr Seuss (46 or 60 depending on what source I turn to in Google) and some of the books resulted as being given a list of words or that 'Green Eggs and Ham' was the result of a bet to write a book using no more than 50 different words. I also thought the Wiki entry about his use of anapestic tetrame [...]

    I started with Oh, The Places You'll Go! then moved to reading other books from Dr.Seuss. Interestingly my neighbour's kid has also started reading one of his books. It was highly entertaining experience reading this book with him.When you I read the book, I had no expressions. When my neighbour's kid was reading the book, the variety of expressions he gave was simply superb to watch.Now I have a friend along with whom I can read story books. Time to get some more if this experience.

    This book uses counting and humor to get the story across. It also counts the apples on the top of a lion, dog and a tiger head instead of being on a tree. I liked how they made it a competition between the animals but when the tiger came in the dog and lion worked together. By the end they all worked together. This is a good book to not only use counting but to teach children how to work together as well.

    A lion, a tiger, and a dog go roller skating and have the brilliant idea of balancing apples on their heads while they skate! Naturally, hilarity ensues as they try to balance more and more apples. This book cracked me (and my husband) up! I think it's the utter disregard for physics that makes it more fun. Young readers will delight in the simple verse, basic counting skills, and I can only assume will bruise many an apple in their own balancing attempts :-)

    This is another Dr. Suess book I had not read before, but I absolutely loved it! As I child I was very into math and numbers so any book with numbers in it I loved and this book is now high up on my list of favorites! It's great for teaching the numbers 1-10 and you can even make a fun activity from the book. You could have the children glue and stack paper apples on a piece of paper and then make a hat out of it so they can wear it on top of their head like in the book!

    Ten Apples Up On Top is a great book to read when you are teaching your children about counting. I would read this story to 3-5 year old's. I read this book once or twice when I was little but when I start teaching I will definitely read it multiple times to help children understand the concept of counting.

    Ten Apples up on top by Dr.Seuss and the book is about apples. And the animals was said oh I have five and six, seven and the too animals was seven. The ainmals have fun and a mop was siad get out, get out and they ant down in the hall. They was run and they was run the town and all people have apples in the end.
