December – Apple And The Copycat
December’s Book of the Month. Apple is very confused by the other naughty apple! The Foodies Books bring you stories from the veggie patch for each month of the year, and all the characters, scenery and weather are in season that month.
It was a crisp and chilly December day in the garden. Apple sneaked out of the fruit storage shed to get a bit of exercise…
In this story, Parsnip happens upon a pocket mirror, but doesn’t know what it is. She sees another Apple inside who is talking and waving its hands at her but she can’t hear it, and as she gets grumpier, so does the other apple.
The story lends itself to discussions of mirrors and reflections. Our free downloadable activities explore the theme of reflections in more depth, with activities about finding reflective surfaces, seeing the difference between reflection and symmetry, and making a reflective self portrait.
