Fun reading June 27 2014
By pin oak tree - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love the You read to Me, I'll Read to You series by Ms. Hoberman. As a former reading specialist, these books are a wonderful opportunity for young readers to interact with you and with the words. The rhyming and the humor of the short-1 to 2 page- stories are perfect and the students loved them. (Unfortunately I lent out my original hardcopies and they never got returned so now I have to re-purchase to read with my grandchildren.) I'd say suitable for the 6-8 year old emerging reader..

We read these at story time and act them out for the K-1 crowd. They love the mini-theater.
We are careful to choose the ones they are familiar with, as the humor is lost if the familiarity is not there.
You Read to Me....Short Mother Goose Tales Feb. 16 2014

This is fun, because the children already know the Nursery Rhymes....and we can share with each other. As a tutor, I love these books because I don't have to read it all and it helps me see how their reading is improving.

I purchased every one of these books for my granddaughter over the last year and half and she absolutely loves them. Every time we go to visit them that's the first thing she wants to do is read from these books. Totally recommend this series.

We have the entire collection of 'You Read to Me I'll Read to You'. Our 7 year old daughter never complains about reading when we read this book together. The rhymes are catchy and fun. It is very enjoyable for the both of us.
