better than busting a rhyme to Seuss

snappy, fun storytime rhymes for bedtime, play time or any time at all!

Dive Right In (but watch out for sharks!)

I'm not sure what the commotion is, but these short poems are the perfect length for preschoolers who love word play, are expanding their vocabulary, are fascinated with various animals, but lack the attention span for "more sophisticated" poetry. The poems feature different meters so it does mix things up a bit more than, say, "Green Eggs and Ham", and the illustrations are colorful and fun and only add to the enjoyment. This is a fun, fun book. As a twist, the first time you read it, read the poem and have your child guess the animal (you'll have to replace the name of the animal in some of the poems with "I" or "we" to do this.)

Great book

My children love it, except it uses the word dumb at one point and mine know they aren't supposed to use that word.

"I want to read the ocean!"

I've been hearing this every night for weeks. I read this to my daughter and she loves it. We even look for the three starfish in each set of pages. She knows many fish, but some were new to her. This is one book I don't mind reading over and over.

Commotion in the Ocean

This is an excellent and delightful book! What a pleasure to read about ocean creatures instead of the usual farm animals. By age 3, my nephew could identify and chat about all the ocean going creatures in this book. It is one of his favorites. The pictures are beautiful and very colorful. I can't say enough great things about this book!

Perfect for an ocean theme!

This book is an adorable addition to anyone's book collection. A different ocean animal is featured on each page. Along with the picture is a short poem about the animal. Children love the pictures and the rhyming text. Also check out Rumble in the Jungle by Giles Andreae. It has the same type of text and illustrations but involves jungle animals.Note to teachers: I use this with my ocean unit. Your students will ask you to read this over and over again. Trust me!
