My Non-Reader Loves to Read This!!!
I ordered this book through a scholastic order form sent home from school. The art I could see looked very interesting which is important to get the attention of young children. Also, because it references a real person, I thought it would be a good selection for the children. It's the best book I've bought for my kids in the last year. Not only because of the pictures and history associated, but because of the story. My son has had alot of difficulty learning to read. While he can easily read many of the words, there are just enough difficult ones for him to have to sound out. He loved the repeated 'Rap a tap tap - think of that!' Singing it out every time he got to it. He usually gives up very easy when he tries to read, but I think the rewarding song-verse on every other page made him want to continue. While this was designated as a picture book, rather than a reading book, I'm extremely happy that it is one my child found rewarding to read. He also enjoyed the information about 'Bojangles' at the end and had lots of questions... He proclaimed out loud before going to bed 'This is my favorite book!'Was this review helpful?
