LANGUAGE:English

"Summary:Two voices are needed to read this book. It includes 13 short, rhyme poetry, stories that are very cute and each very different. Since it takes two readers, it is very interactive and engaging.
Curriculum Connection:Alliteration, Rhyme Poetry, Repetition, and Short Sentences
Reaction:The rhymes were very cute -my favorite one was "The Puppy." I would suggest that the rhymes are read at different times (not all at once). In my opinion, it wasn't the best book I've read with poetry or rhyme and I could do without it in my personal library. However, the illustrations were great!
Audience:Primary/Elementary (Adult too, to read with child)
Visual Appeal:The front cover is appealing -one reason why I chose this book. There are different characters in every story. Bright eye-catching colors are used to hold the readers's attention. It is also won a Notable Award from the American Library Association -the other reason why I chose this book.

" Very cute book! I loved sharing the reading parts. Some are rhyming others are tongue twisters to say. Loved it as did my daughter! " said.

"Summary/Review: The book contains short little stories presented in a poetry format. The most interesting feature would be how the poems are meant for two voices. Reading it by yourself is nowhere near as fun than it would be reading with a friend. Switching off voices and reading the pats keep the poem flowing and makes it much more amusing. Uses in classroom: 1. Introduction to poetry 2.Students can pair up with another student and develop their own poems meant for two voices. 3. For more of a challenge, students can pair up into groups of three and develop poems for three voices.

" Interactive book about reading. " said.

" 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.AR: LG, BL 1.9, AR Quiz #79894 " 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.

"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.
" said.

" 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.
