This is a wonderful interactive puzzle book that helps children to think. The puzzle is nestled into the cover, and you can set it up. Designed by well-known teacher and folk artist William Accorsi, the creator of 10 Button Book. Accorsi has also exhibited at the American Crafts Museum in New York City. This is an enjoyable storybook. The pieces are like old wooden toys you must put together in order to finish the story. The story itself is about friendship, goals, hard work, and shapes. Thinking is what happens when your child encounters the story of a dog named Joe and his best friend, Al the Alligator, who both love apples. When the apple orchard is for sale they try to figure out how to earn money to buy it. They think up some unusual ways to solve the problem. The final puzzle is up to the reader: how to reach the tall trees and begin picking the apples? This is a problem that children will want to solve over and over again. Everyone will enjoy this delightful book.
