Kit Lit – We Go Together!

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.

WeGoTogether_SterlingPublishing_THM1What 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.

WeGoTogether-2We Go Together! is a fun and funny book to read-aloud with younger readers.  It’s also a great one for new readers who are just mastering language and vocabulary all on their own.

WeGoTogether_SterlingPublishing_THM2My 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?

      We have a rule that after 7 pm (they go to bed between 7-8 pm) that there are no electronics or TV – but as many books as we can cram once they get their jammies on and brush their teeth!

    • TheHarriedMom says

      It’s a fun book for younger readers who still have to be read to and for beginner readers, it can really help their reading confidence.

    • TheHarriedMom says

      This is a great book – teaches them not only vocab, but also the relationship of items – popular pairings – which sometimes can be a difficult concept to teach!

    • TheHarriedMom says

      Yeah, we read to them all the time, but we’re making a concentrated effort to read a lot of books to/with them. We’re even going to the library a few times a week to refresh our books.

    • TheHarriedMom says

      This book would be perfect for her. She can even guess the pairings from the pix – to make it sort of like a game.

    • TheHarriedMom says

      It certainly is. My mother used to make my sister and I read for 1/2 every night before we went to bed from the time we were 7…reading is fundamental to life!

    • TheHarriedMom says

      It would be a great gift for any new reader or even to a new mom who is just starting to build a baby/kid library. They’re very durable board books.

    • TheHarriedMom says

      That’s great Kita – I think this would be a great addition to any young reader’s personal library!

    • TheHarriedMom says

      It’s a fun and easy read book – and one that I actually don’t mind reading over and over again!

    • TheHarriedMom says

      I hope that this author and illustrator team up for more books, I know I’ll definitely check them out.

    • TheHarriedMom says

      Thanks Victoria – it is a great book for younger readers – and one that parents will enjoy reading too!
