And my favorite rhyme is:
One misty, moisty morning,

Clothed all in leather,
Clothed all in leather,
With cap under his chin.
How do you do, and how do you do,
And how do you do agai ...more

With illustrated animals as the vehicle for conveying the rhymes and plain white backgrounds on every page, Scarry's presentation of the classic verses is a bit too simple. The pictures, composed of pen and watercolor, are juvenile and unstimulating, and require minimal thought on the part of the reader. The lettering used for the text is no different.

Through the recommendations of Memoria Press in their curriculum package it is amazing what is possible to provide in a pre-school or Junior Kindergarten experience and I’d say the bulk of the best of it is within the literature and poetry section.

Two, however that you use on a regular basis throughout the year of curriculum in the lesson plans. The...more

This book contains most of the familiar Mother Goose rhymes, as well as many unfamiliar (and strange!) ones. It's a little too long to teach as a single lesson; better to break it up or pick and choose specific rhymes. Some of the language is quite outdated, which could be skipped or made into a mini history lesson. This book contains excellent, literal illustrations that children will like. This would make a g ...more
