Read to Me! by Chris Helene Bridge

Schema: hearing a book read aloud

This is one of those special books that a parent or caregiver will never tire of re-reading aloud to little ones. Rhyming text will have your listeners memorizing the book and saying it with you quickly.

Children love to share in reading a predictive text with a repetitive phrase. The phrase “read to me,” will give young readers a part of the story that they can say with you each time. The idea that reading can take place anywhere we are is shown as the author shows reading taking place at home in a chair, on the floor, in between chores such as cooking and laundry, outdoors, in the car, on a boat, traveling, at the park, in the bath tub, and in bed. Each page is brightly illustrated in collage art.

Tips for parents about the importance of reading to a child are included.

This book would be a great gift for new parents.

    I would be glad to post my review on Amazon. Looking forward to your next one. I read this to all of my prek and kinders in my elementary school and they loved it.
