" GREAT to read with a young reader. Easy, short phrases for young readers and also love the sections where we both read together. Love how she used some classic tales and her little spin/version of them. " said.

" I enjoyed reading this because it gave a twist on Mother Goose Tales that we all know. It gives perspectives from the characters. The are colorful, fun illustrations. Also, it requires two people to read. I loved it. " said.

" Each year I have a HUGE poetry unit that includes a poetry scavenger hunt. I use at least 50 poetry books, and try to get them in all types and styles. This book and others in her series are in constant use all month long. " said.

" This book is not as good as the first "You'll read to me, I'll read to you. It is a bit more difficult for an early reader and definitely not as funny. It is still enjoyable as she reworks some of the classic mother goose rhymes for a new twist. " said.

" Bringing me back to my childhood days of Mother Goose Tales, I enjoyed these rhythmic poems. Some poems in this book include my favorite tales of Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Miss Muffet, and Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater. These dialogue poems are color coded by voice, adding a clear representation of multiple voices being heard. " said.

" This book has the traditional nursery rhymes from Mother Goose, but they all of a twist on them and are worded differently. The wording was changed so that there could be two voices. There are separate parts for each voice, that are color coded, and each poem has a stanza or two that both voices read together. It could be a fun book to read with the class - teacher reads one part class reads the other part. " said.

" Our preschooler doesn't yet read, but thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue. Being quite the literalist, it took several rhymes before she understood that the "new" ending was Okay, too. This was fun to read. We can't wait until our preschooler can read along … or that we've read it so much s/he knows her part! Read our full review at the Reading Tub. " said.

"Theme: building reading confidence and love of reading

Another Hobberman book that my students' enjoyed so I wanted to spend some time reading as well. Great twist on the traditional nursery written for two voices. I also liked that this book was a little more challenging for higher level readers (as a second grade teacher I have students who read a variety of levels so it is great to have different leveled books for an author study).

Use in the classroom: Have students search for other versions of their favorite nursery rhymes and see if they can rewrite it for two voices.
