With back to school just around the corner, The Hubs and I have upped the ante on our daily reading with the kidlets to help ease them back in the learning groove. This week on The Harried Mom I’ll be featuring Kit Lit – books appropriate for younger readers, aged 3 to 7.
Today’s book is We Go Together! from Sterling Children’s Books, written by Todd Dunn and illustrated by Miki Sakamoto.
What goes together perfectly? A young child and this book about all things that belong with each other. The book uses both rhythm and rhyme to teach children the concepts and meanings of words that are often paired together such as “socks and shoes,” “horse and wagon,” “chicken and eggs” and “leaves and fall.” The verse is complimented with colorful and whimsical illustrations.
My three and a half-year old daughter loves hearing this book – over and over again! She’s even starting to read the book along with me. She’s got the “We go together like…” phrase down and uses the illustrations as her hint as to the pairing.
The book is available at most book retailers’, either in-store or online for $6.95. Also, buying this book serves a greater good. Half of all sales of We Go Together! benefit the kids at the Eternal Hope Children’s Home to help purchase books, clothes and other basic needs for orphaned children.
Now it’s your turn to share. What’s your favorite rhyming story book?
