You Read to Me, I'll Read to You
Tonight, Paul asked Grace if she would read to him for a bit. I suggested that she get, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You so that they could read it together. Have you seen these books by Mary Ann Hoberman? The short stories/poems are written so that two people read the stories together. The "parts" are delineated by different color texts. It's a really clever idea that is a lot of fun for both readers. It's exciting for a new reader and it helps to develop flow and expression. Though the text is simplistic for Grace it is still fun for her to read, and they are perfect for Harris!
P.S. The books were wildly popular and Mary Ann Hoberman has written a whole series of books!
