Introducing a unique book every one should have to help him or her learn to love reading. With type set in three columns and three colors for easy readability, each short, rhymed story in this collection is like a little play for two voices. They are about all kinds of things: bears, birthdays, puppies, snowmen, friendships, and more. But no matter what their subject, they all feature traditional reading techniques — rhyme, rhythm, and repetition—and finish with a satisfying refrain:
You read to me! I'll read to you!
Poet Mary Ann Hoberman's work with Literacy Volunteers of America provided the inspiration for this book, which is to promote literacy by reading to, and listening to, each other. Brilliantly illustrated by Michael Emberley, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You is sure to become a classic primer for budding readers.
