You Read to Me, I’ll Read to You: Very Short Mother Goose Tales to Read Together
Author/Illustrator: Mary Ann Hoberman/Michael Emberley
Publisher: Megan Tingley Books. An Imprint of Little, Brown and Co.
Publication Date: 2005
Audience: Gr. 1-5
Overview: Rhymes for two voices, this engaging book presents multi-colored stanzas to cue readers to their parts. The rhythm and rhyme beg to be read aloud, as the playful illustrations delight readers
Activity: These books are perfect for choral reading, as the words are already set in different colors to lend multiple voices to the delightful rhymes.
What a creative spark for student writing of their own stories for two voices (it’s not necessary to rhyme, either!). Writers would enjoy having others read their final drafts in multiple voices.
