1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 5 2000
Format: Library Binding
Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.
To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. Chicken Soup with Rice was one of her picks.
Now I should provide some more background. My wife's Mother makes a lengendary chicken soup, which will cure whatever ails you, cheer you up when you're sad, and help you get your homework done faster. We have always received large containers of this wonderful soup for every possible use. It becomes not only something we eat a lot of, but something that we talk about frequently. There is also discussion about how hard the Matzoh balls should be.
Although this book is ostensibly about the months of the year, it also has a theme about what you do with chicken soup with rice in each month. So the poems were just a starting point for us in discussing what else to do with Grandma's chicken soup.
At the same time, I know that my daughter's love of this book also helped her learn the months (and what seasons they are in). Maurice Sendak's illustrations are wonderful and witty, and she enjoyed them very much. I think you and your child will, too.
There's a short 10 line poem for each month with chicken soup with rice in it. In January you eat it while slipping and sliding on the ice.

This is a short and sweet little book that can be read in just a few minutes, but every minute will be filled with fun! In cleverly silly rhymes Maurice Sendak takes us through the twelve months and thoroughly entertains us with his characteristic illustrations featuring the little dark-haired boy we've come to know in some of his other stories. The non-sensical inclusion of "chicken soup with rice" in all of the rhymes makes the months all the more memorable and easy for kids to recite, a great little device. The paperback edition is very affordable but I suspect you'll love this one so much that you'll want the hardcover in your library.

This is a great little book to read aloud- it has a nice rhythm as well as good repetition that little ones like, in the lines about "chicken soup with rice". The child gets to go through the months of the year and go to wonderful places like Bombay and down the Nile, all the while, eating, well, you know what they get to eat. Some kids will have Maurice Sendak's version of ice skating or how to treat roses in their heads for a long time and they won't even know where it came from. Surprise! It came from this little witty book. :-)

This was a favorite book of mine when I was a little girl and I would read it all the time and my Mom would read it to me as a bedtime book, I have had two copies of this book the first one had been either lost or given away but I found another copy at a garage sale and it was in very good condition and I just had to buy it, I don't know where it is but it's around somewhere probably up in the attic and I will have to look for it so I can read it to my niece. I recommend this book!

The first time I read this I was in kindergarten (1984). They had a record that you would play along with it.I would rush to finish my work just so I could go hear it. Eventually, I learned all the words and the song that was on the album.While everyone was still doing their work, I was singing my lungs out in the back of the room.I've been trying to find it ever since. I'm so glad that I found it!!! Now I can give it away as gifts to all the kids I know will enjoy it!!!!

My daughter loves all the "Really Rosie" books. She was introduced to the Really Rosie CD performed by Carole King (also available on Amazon!) on her 1st Birthday and now, a year later, she knows all the songs. As far as the books go, we own: One Was Johnny, Alligators All Around, & Chicken Soup w/Rice. These books are well written with clever art work by Maurice Sendak. Plus, they are really cheap!! Highly recommended :)

This is a book of poetry about the months of the year. It goes through each month and has a cute little poem to go along with it. I love this book because it is a really fun way to learn the months and the poems are very creative. The author's purpose for writing this book was to give children a fun way to learn the months. The children can also learn things about poetry and rhythm through reading this book.

I can remember seeing the show when it aired on television years ago, when I was a child. My sister later bought me the LP (which I have to this day, I'm thirty something).I used this series of books & songs when I did my student teaching for preschoolers & turned the whole school on to it. I am now purchasing it on CD, along with the books for my children 5 & 2. The tradition lives on!
