You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Togetherby Mary Ann Hoberman, Michael Emberley (Illustrator)
With clear, color-coded typography and clever illustrations, this fourth You Read to Me,
In an irresistible fourth You Read to Me collaboration, Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley have added spooky tales to their bestselling and award-winning series--and it's a scary lot of fun. You've never met witches, zombies, ghosts, or ghouls like these before!
With clear, color-coded typography and clever illustrations, this fourth You Read to Me, I'll Read to You book "in two voices" uses traditional reading teaching techniques - alliteration, rhyme, and repetition - to invite young children to read along with peers or with an adult.
This fourth installment in the innovative series invites young readers once again to share its whimsical vignettes (written in dialogue) with a peer or an adult. Perfect for Halloween, the stories all revolve around monsters, goblins, zombies, and ghouls. The selections are short, each running across a spread, and "voices" are color-coded and carefully positioned on the page so readers know when it's their turn. Despite its title, the book is hardly engineered to keep any child awake at night. Emberley's illustrations depict friendly fiends with lopsided smiles and silly features, and the fear/gross-out factors in the text are almost nonexistent. A solid choice for most libraries.
