The Mouse and The Apple

The Mouse and the Apple is written by Stephen Butler. It tells the story of a mouse who found a beautiful apple hanging on a tree. While he is waiting for it to fall off, a hen, goose, goat, and cow come to join him.

The apple that is hanging from the tree is not attached and can be pulled off in the end for the mouse. A shiny sequin makes it extra special. The patterns for the animals came from Downeast Thunder Farm.

Way Up High

Way up high in the apple tree,
A little red apple smiled down at me.
I reached up as high as I could.
But the apple was too high! Oh no! No good!
Should I give up? No!
Let’s get help! Here comes…

Horse…
Cow…
Pig…
Sheep…
Chicken…

Way up high in the apple tree,
A little red apple smiled down at me.
I reached up as high as I could.
And picked that apple.
Mmm mmm it was good!

Munch, Munch, Munch

Five little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A CATERPILLAR…….MUNCH, MUNCH

Four little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A BIRD………MUNCH, MUNCH

Three little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A PIG……….MUNCH,MUNCH

Two little apples hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A HORSE…….MUNCH,MUNCH

One little apple hung on a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking
So guess who came to eat?
A SCARECROW……MUNCH,MUNCH

Now the tree is bare
There are no more apples there
But when next fall comes around
Guess who’ll be there?
THE CATERPILLAR
THE BIRD
THE PIG
THE HORSE
and the SCARECROW
YUM! YUM!
