My 4-year old niece loves this book. Not only does it teach her how to read, it also teaches valuable lessons such as appreciating differences between people, words that are not appropriate to use, and the importance of reading. The stories encourage creativity and discussion. The illustrations are very entertaining. We like the layout of the book, one reads one side, the other reads the other side, and both read what is in the middle. We can also switch sides when she has learned one side. I can see her sharing this with her friends. A very good tool for learning to read and in how to work as a team. I highly recommend this book. It is a joy to read and share.

Fun rhyming poems for you and someone to read, or read using different voices. The poems are really sweet and endearing. About many different types of animals, new friends, and different things. The water-color illustrations are really cute and make the short stories/poems really fun to read with kids.

This is a great book to use in a young literacy classroom. Choral reading is an effective way to build students' confidence with reading, and this is a fun book to use in order to initiate that kind of instruction. I gave it five stars because I loved it. It was fun and interesting, and I just think it's, overall, a nifty idea for a book. It's interactive.

The delightful picture book of stories for two voices draws children into reading as a fun, social activity. It felt like I enjoyed the experience just as much as the kids when I demonstrated with another teacher in front of a class in the library last week. The rhyming stories are charming and sometimes silly. The accompanying illustrations provide matching whimsey. This is a book for kids and adult, both.

I loved this book of poems! I thought that the instructions in the begining were extremely cute and great for both readers. One person read the left side, one person read the right side, and both persons read when the words wer in the middle. It was so creative and a book where many people could interact with one another. The pictures and colors aded even more!

Students adore reading these fun poems. Partner reading supports fluency practice.

This book was actually a book from my son's library collection. It is a wonderful book to read with a child. It helps motivate them to read independently. I would recommend this book to anyone who is learning to read.

Great book for shared reading with students. Poems are written in contrasting colors broken up line by line. Have your student read the pink lines while you read the purple and together read the blue :) Great for teacher-student interaction.
