My 5 y.o. son LOVES this book. I read one line, he reads the next line and then we read a line together. First person's lines are written on the left printed in purple, second person's lines are on the right in red, the lines to read together are centered and printed in blue. Each short story is a fun rhyming poem that covers two pages. Also includes wonderful illustrations. Because my son is just learning to read, he is struggling a little with all the contractions (let's, she's, I'll) but they are important to the rhythm of the words. A short excerpt from "Hop and Skip", "(1st reader) My mom says, "Walk/ Instead of run." (2nd reader) My dad does, too./ But that's no fun. (Both) If you just walk/ To where you go,/ Instead of run,/ You go too slow. ." It is accompanied by great illustrations of a rabbit and child dressed as a rabbit tumbling down a hill with their books going helter skelter. Illustrations include boys and girls of different races (cats, dogs and pigs too). Titles include: The Snowman, The Snake, The Telephone and are appropriate for children of all ages. I love how this book encourages reading and seeks to make it fun. If a child enjoys reading, then the whole world is available to him or her. Here's a bit of my favorite story, The End: "(1st) We're at the end/ (2nd) The very end/ (both) The very/ Very/ Very/ End (1st) No more words/ (2nd) Or pictures. Look!/ (1st) No more stories/ (2nd) In this book. / (Both) But there are other/ Books to read./ (2nd) Hundreds/ (1st) Thousands/ (both) All we need, /Any time/ In any weather/ We can sit/ Right down together. ." Fabulous fun!
