Rhyming verse sets the pace for this collection of 14 poems that let us share a child's world after dark: from noises at night to the stars in the sky.
Illustrations help bring this collection of children's poems to life. They are meant to be read out loud, and offer great opportunities to partner-read with emerging readers.
Our daughter loved the poems, and the further we got into the book, the more she wanted to read herself.
This was fun to read and a great way to introduce poetry to kids. Some of the poems took me back to my own childhood! Our daughter is still an emerging reader, and the poems are filled with a lot of her "word wall" and sight words.
This is an illustrated collection of poems written for kids learning to read.
Kids like rhymes (they have been listening to them since their days as toddlers), and rhyming sequences help with learning to read. Read them out loud together, with each of you taking turns. The poems are loaded with sight words that Kindergarteners and first graders need to learn, but it's more fun reading them here than with flashcards. You can expand the fun by creating your own rhyming poems.
