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.

Ten Fluffy Chickens

One day I will probably sew the eggs into two five egg clutches for now they are loose. Each egg has a blank side and a side with a chick.

Five eggs and five eggs start with eggs face down
And that makes the
Sitting on top is mother hen.
Cackle, cackle, cackle clap hands as you say cackle
What do I see?
Ten fluffy chickens flip over the eggs
As yellow as can be.

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!
