"Summary/Classroom Integration: This read-together book features short stories about friends, animals and being together (perhaps reading!). The author notes that she was inspired to create this format during her work with the Literacy Volunteers of America because it requires pairs of readers. I would use this in my class during paired readings (perhaps with upper grade mentor programs), introducing poetry in various formats, or encouraging a home-component.

" I forgot how adorable this was! Last night I found this while trying to find a story to read to my autistic nephew. I had bought it years ago for my daughter and we had had loads of fun with the back and forth. It's a great way to engage your child in reading. The rhymes are fun and silly and keeps attention. I would like to get the others just to have them. Maybe I'll help teach my grandchildren someday. " said.

"This is an interactive story that be used by multiple students as different characters are present in this novel. The organization can be a little confusing to some students, but the different font color that is used to show the different character that is talking. The rhyming and repetition makes the story come to life and laughable. This book should be intended for students in younger grades. The author uses the blank space for the book to help separate scenes and provide just enough detail for the reader to understand. This would be an enjoyable book to read aloud and to have student participation with. " said.

"In "You Read to Me, I'll Read o You: Very Short Stories to Read Together", you're immediately drawn into the book as you quickly figure out that you need two people to read the book consecutively, at the same time. The book goes through multiple mini stories and takes you through many different journeys which also elaborates on the characters two personalities, each standing out on their own. Each story had illustrations that went with each stanza of the story to add on to keep the readers interest. The book is very interactive with both readers throughout.
In my opinion, this is a very good book to read with kids because it keeps them intrigued and excited to read each mini story inside of the short story. A large reason why I was attracted to this book is because I could tell it was apart of a series, therefore I knew I could continue enjoy more books of the same nature.

"I’m a huge advocate for reading to children and any book that encourages this gets an A+ in my opinion. The author clearly agrees with me and goes one step further. She’s written a book that’s designed to be co-read by an adult and a youngster.

The stories in this book are entertaining, humorous and educational. For example, “The Dime” tells the story of one pig who loses his dime and the friend who just so happens to find a dime. They realize it’s the same coin, so they split it up and buy a book to share. So, in just this one story alone the author has managed to address honesty, sharing, problem solving and math. Brilliant! All of the stories in “Very Short Stories to Read Together” are equally as good as “The Dime”.

The illustrations are adorable and aren’t only there for accompaniment. They contribute to each tale and at times tell a story all their own. They’re colorful and whimsical, and are sure to delight even the youngest child.

I would highly recommend getting a copy of this book and adding it to your child’s book collection. Wonderful!

"Following the lead of John Ciardi, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You lends itself to shared reading opportunities between students, parents and children, teacher and students, etc. It is a collection of poems in two or three voices that encourage performance reading without pressure; if you read to me, I'll read to you. Plus, the poems are seriously cute!

The second grade students in my cooperating classroom do something very similar to this as one of their literacy centers everyday. They enjoy it, and they don't even realize that they are increasing their fluency with each reading. I love learning via sneakiness.

" We have finally made it through the entire "you read to me, I'll read to you" series. Neo likes the banter between all the rhymes, though he is still a spectator for the next little while. These short rhyme stories are perfect for an early afternoon before the next weekend adventure. " said.

" Interactive book about reading. " said.
