You Read to Me, Iíll Read to You/Very Short
Stories to Read Together
Megan Tingley Books, Little, Brown & Co., 2001
Illustrated by Michael Emberley.
This unique book "in two voices" uses traditional techniques -
rhyme, rhythm, and repetition - to make reading a joyful experience
for new readers.
Consisting of short stories set up on the page like miniature plays,
each voice has its own color. Whether used in the classroom for
paired or choral readings or at home, with a parent and child curled
up on a couch together, these light-hearted giggle-inducing stories
will soon turn even reluctant readers into enthusiasts. Michael
Emberley's witty illustrations work perfectly with the text.
Look inside the book!

"A delightful choreography of rhythm, rhyme, and repetition
that begs to be read aloud in tandem
The gist of the book is
that reading aloud and listening to others read aloud is an integral
part of early literacy."
School Library Journal starred review
"A little gem for little readers! It should be in every house
and classroom of beginning readers."
Jim Trelease, Reading Tree Productions
"Playful rhymes celebrate the sheer joy of reading in this
exuberant read- aloud collection
Hoberman draws upon such universally
kid-pleasing themes as frolicking in the snow and frisky puppies,
liberally infusing them with copious amounts of silliness."
"The energy never flags, neither in Hoberman's trademark bouncy
rhythms nor in Emberley's exuberant illustrations
