Lisa Children Book Shelf : Bad Apple

Welcome to my Saturday Book shelf . Today at the Melville Library I am sharing a great children book and craft ! Have fun…

Bad Apple: A Tale of Friendship

It takes a firm apple to stand up to bullies.

When Mac, an apple, meets Will, a worm, they become fast friends, teaching each other games and even finishing each other’s sentences. But apples aren’t supposed to like worms, and Mac gets called “rotten” and “bad apple.” At first, Mac doesn’t know what to do—it’s never easy standing up to bullies–but after a lonely day without Will, Mac decides he’d rather be a bad apple with Will than a sad apple without.

“Charming . . . Social norms force Mac and Will apart; surprisingly effective, fruit-related pathos ensues before the two friends decide to buck convention and like whom they like. Who cares what anyone thinks?”—The New York Times  

Today’s Apple craft :


  • Coffee filter
  • Spray bottle filled with water
  • Apple-colored markers 
  • Apple shapes cut out of red and green construction paper. 

So you use your markers on the coffee filters, and when done. Lightly spray the coffee filters and watch the magic happen. As the colors run . Let dry completely 

Cut out the apple shapes and then cut out carefully the centers. When dry place coffee filters in the center and cut to size and glue or tape to hold in.
