Synopses & Reviews
Here's a book with something new - you read to me! I'll read to you! We'll read each page to one another - you'll read one side, I the other. A unique book 'in two voices' that uses traditional reading teaching techniques (alliteration, rhyme, repetition, short sentences) to invite young children to read along with an adult. Each of the twelve short stories fit on one spread and features childlike themes - family, friendship, pets and seasons.With clear, color-coded typography and amusing illustrations, this collection is sure to entertain.
The fourth entry in the irresistible You Read to Me collection now offers scary fun with the addition of spooky tales just right for Halloween or any other spook-tacular day. Full color.
