You Read to Me, I‘ll Read to You by Mary Ann Hoberman was written in 2010. I really liked how fun these fables in the form of poetry. I had lots of fun reading these and following the pictures that go with them! My favorite one was the fox and the grape. I‘ve never heard this fable before and I loved it! I like how they go back and forth between the fox and grapes!

You Read to Me, I‘ll Read to You was published in 2010 and is a form of poetry. Written by May Ann Hoberman, the book goes through a number of short fables. I like the two person perspective in which you can have two people read the book. The book references two different animals having a conversation about different things.

This poetry book filled with all these different fables tell intriguing stories that give a story. It also gives quality to the imagination we use. The outline of the stories are all fixed differently on each page and are organized by (almost always) stanzas of four lines across the page. This book would be nice just to sit down and read when your'e bored and want something small to read!

i read a poem about “the peacock and the crane”, along with many others. These poems teach good morals and are intriguing to a reader of all ages. I think the connections it makes to a child can be beneficial and makes it shown in a playful way!

You will have nothing in the end.”

This would be great in a classroom, having the students read the verses back and forth with other students.

This book is super fun for kids. The authors turned Aesop‘s fables into rhymes and poems. I would say that this is more geared towards grades 3-5, but I still thinking younger children would enjoy how it rhymed.

Useful book for children to practice turns reading verses from different points of views in the form of poems that they have probably heard the stories of.

2010, poetry. Book of many poems that tell about well known fables. Versus switch colors to show how one person can read one side of the story while the other reads from the other characters point of view. Pictures match the versus and visually show what is going on.

I loved this! I would read this with a younger class because the lines are very short and i‘m not entirely sure if they would understand the message of each poem so having the moral at the end of the story is a really great way to have them think about the story!

Poetry- Published in 2010
I loved how this book is set up! The poem is split up into 2 sections. Every 2-3 lines, it‘s switches to the next person. Also instead of ending each poem with “You read to me, I‘ll read to you”, they end the poems with a moral. I really loved this so the students can truly understand the meaning.

I LOVE this quote because it truly brings out the purpose of poetry and it‘s importance for connecting to others and the poetry itself!

Published in 2010 and illustrated by Michael Emberley, this poetry book is a little different in the sense that there are two pieces to them poems in which friends can read to one another! It includes a rhyming scheme and has almost a conversational aspect in which is light and fun to practice! Each poem also includes a moral at the end which is super awesome to refer to!

This poetry picture book contains a variety of short fables that are great for partner reading. The author, Mary Ann Hoberman uses alliteration, rhyme, and repetition to allow readers to read along with peers or adults. This book is apart of a series that tells many different types of stories using the same technique (e.g. You Read to Me and I'll Read to You; Very Short Fairy Tales to Read Together).

Floribelg I saw this book in the library and as I skimmed through it I thought it would be great for CR. Just because they have distinguished lines for more than one person to read. Choosing this as a SR is just as great teaching strategy. 2y

DominiqueL @floribelg you are right. There are so many different teaching strategies that are beneficial due to the structure of text. Mary Ann Hoberman was really thinking when she wrote these books 2y
