I found the image HERE through a Google search.

Yes, I had to sweep up rice at least once a day, but she had so much fun burying and finding the letters and putting them in their places.

Along with reading 10 Apples Up on Top, Grace also got to put 10 apple up on top of Gracie.

This was an example of letter recognition and reinforcement – the apples have the letters A and a on them. Grace also enjoyed counting them and sorting the red from the green apples.
