Apples to Eat
By Brenda B. Covert

1     Amy can draw. She draws a brown pole. She tops it with a lumpy, green ball. She adds red dots to it.
2     Dan sees it and grins. "I like apples," he tells her.
3     "I like them, too," says Amy.
4     Dan takes a red crayon. He draws a big red ball. Amy gives him a brown crayon. He draws a short line at the top.
5     "That looks good enough to eat!" Amy tells him.
6     Lots of boys and girls like to eat apples. They are sweet and crunchy. You can pick them off a tree to eat. You can press them to make juice or cider. Cut them up, and you can add them to a salad. Slice them, and they are good with dip. Have you ever had a candied apple? You eat it on a stick. It has a sweet shell.
7     If you cook the apples, you can make more food! You can make applesauce from cooked apples. Apple butter is a yummy spread for bread. You can put apples in cakes and pies. Some of us like baked apples. They are soft and very sweet.
8     Apples taste good. They help you grow. They are good for your teeth. Ask for an apple when you need a snack!
