Mr. Peabody's Apples written by Madonna, illustrations by Loren Long This is a great book to use when teaching a lesson on how rumors could hurt someone. The story takes place in a small town called Happyville. Mr. Peabody is a history teacher that also coaches a boy's baseball team. One of the boys sees Mr. Peabody taking apples from a fruit stand and thinks he is stealing them. This of course is not true. I especially liked the ending of the story when Mr. Peabody tells the boy who started the rumor to bring a pillow to the field. The pillow was cut and all the feathers that were inside of the pillow blew everywhere. Mr. Peabody told him to pick up all the feathers. This was a great example of showing how rumors spread and how hard it is to undo the damage that has been done. Gary Dominicus

This book teaches children not to spread rumors, not to lie and not to believe shady stories told about someone else. A good book!

Anyone who doesn't like this book, clearly doesn't know children well. As a teacher, I am constantly trying to get students to understand the impacts their words can have. This book is a personal favorite. The way the story comes together in the end is a beautiful masterpiece. It really gets the message across to readers that no matter how hard you try, it is impossible to take words back and completely retore relationships once they have been damaged.

I read this book to my students when I noticed rumors were floating around the classroom. It opened up a great discussion on how words can hurt more than we realize. I kept this book behind my desk and students were asking daily if they could read it during silent-reading time.

I borrow this book from my English teacher. When I read it, I was so surprise. This book was such the greatest book I had seen. It had beautiful drawing and just like the real. It also taught me an important lesson. I like it very much.

I love the illustrations and theme of this story. The moral of the story is valuable and timeless: Gossip is not able to be repaired entirely no matter the effort. My children 'got it' with Madonna's wonderful writing.

What a super story! I am a public speaking and communication instructor and I am always looking for ways to help students understand the power of words. This story nails it...and the artwork is fantastic. I not only own this, but will now proudly buy this for others. Spread the word!

What an easy way for a child to realize the way words can damage/hurt another person. I enjoyed this book as much as my class did.

Loved this book. It has great morals. Everybody who has opened their mouth when they shouldn't have should read this. It surely teaches that everything is not always what it seems.

Mr Peabody's Apples is a book that both children and adults can benefit from. It's full of good morals and valuable lessons. My grandchildren and I spend good quality time reading Madonna's childrens books and we can't wait for Yakov and the Seven Thieves to arrive in June! Thanks Madonna!

My daughter is 5 yrs old and just loves The English Roses, she ask's me to read it to her everynight and is hoping they make a movie of this story. I happen ENJOY myself because it teaches children about morals and to respect each other. We are hoping there will be a part II of the English Roses. Great JOb !!!

I can see why Madonna wrote this story, after being critized and judged throughout her career, however, this story does not appeal to children.(at least it didn't appeal to mine!)The book is not fun. The story and illustrations are bland. I'm so glad I didn't spend money on it, but chose to borrow it from the library instead! (still felt it was a waste though).

It doesn't surprise me that people criticize Madonna for writing childrens books. It's amazing that people are so judgemental when, the work, which is actually what the subject is here, is very good. Why must people always bring up her behavior in videos or on TV?? Well it just so happens that I am expecting with my first child and I happen to love Madonna and all that she does. I'm sure my child will know this as it gets older and sees all of her albums and movies in our home. I also happen to love sex. Does that make me a bad person?? Or an unfit mother?? And if I had the chance to kiss Madonna, I would. Can't wait until the next book. Keep up the good work Madonna.

I have been a Madonna fan for the last 20 years, but I have to admit I was nervous about how her books would turn out. What a wonderful surprise! They are well-written and beautifully illustrated. The morals they teach are not only valuable lessons, but not overly preachy either. I must say that this is a book I hope to enjoy with my own children one day.

My son brought this book home as a homework assignment as he has through out the year with many others. We have had the joy of reading many other books through out the year. But this one left an impression on me that was very surprising, and touching at the same time. The next day he had to return the book to school and I was unable to read it to my nice. I ended up buying the book for my 2 nephews, 1 niece and my best friend daughter as well as one for my son. I was really pleasantly surprised that someone of her stauncher was able to speck just loud enough to where a young child will learn from it. All I can say is Amazing!! This is a must read book! Amazing signer and now amazing story teller!! Keep up the amazing shock system Madonna, your doing a great JOB!!

I read the English Roses and thought of my granddaughters, now I look at this book not only think of my girls, but I can include my grandsons. Great book, illustrations are wonderful and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

Having worked in a children's bookstore, I, along with my co-workers have seen many celebrity books pass by. Most of the celebs don't understand that talent in one area does not translate to all areas. The story in Mr. Peabody's Apples doesn't really hold together with the illustrations (which are quite beautiful). When Mr. Peabody takes an apple, the illustration clearly shows the clerk sees him. Yet later on, the reader is supposed to omit that fact and believe what the boy thinks he saw. The dialog, while better than her first children's book, is still awkward. A nice moral but there are better books for children.

Who Is 'Madonna' trying to kid writing a children's book of lessons?! What do we say when the children ask about her lewd acts on video or with Britney and at the same time proclaim deep spirituality and goodness?

Adults can learn something from these books to Madonna captures life leasons that we should teach our children.

She's been around for more than 20 years and still going strong. She entertain us with her music, movies & sold out tours. She's a great entertainer. She's a singer, actress, writer, producer, model, smart business woman and a mother, and now she's a writer for children. This books are great gifts for the Children, just on time for Christmas. Way to go Madonna.
