Summary "The ultimate reader's guide to choosing fun and funny stories to read with and to children, this resource offers a concentrated look at the content and appeal of different books, helping parents make informed decisions about what their children read. More than a recommended reading list, books in this guide help children's language development and encourage good reading habits, improved comprehension, and a broadened vocabulary. Those looking for suggestions outside this book will find a "Hall of Fame" listing of notable children's literature authors for any age level. Featuring a comprehensive selection of stories for preschoolers, emergent readers, and children ready for chapter books, this book is a go-to for parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers"-- Provided by publisher.
"As a children's humorist, Rob Reid, aka Rappin' Rob, has entertained children and their families as a storyteller for more than 30 years. His lively, participative shows feature storytelling, music activities, and wordplay games. He is the author of more than a dozen books on children's library programming, including What's Black and White and Reid All Over: Something Hilarious Happened at the Library (ALA Editions) and two picture books, Comin' Down to Storytime (Upstart) and Wave Goodbye (Lee and Low). In between writing, performing, and duties as Senior Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Rob writes columns on children's literature for LibrarySparks and Book Links magazine (a Booklist publication) and conducts workshops across North America, entertaining audiences with activities that make literature come alive for children. His lineup for this guide runs the gamut from classics like Horton Hatches the Egg and Caps for Sale, still favorites among children even after decades in print, to more recent funny-bone ticklers like The Stinky Cheese Man, No, David (that naughty kid next door), and Don't Let the Pigeon Take the Bus. With sections on poetry, novels, picture books, and chapter books for ages preschool through grade 7, this lineup has something for every kid's comic taste. What better way to bond with you child than to share a good laugh?"-- Provided by publisher.
