Co-Reading with Your Child at Its Best with "You Read to Me, I'll Read to You/Very Short Stories to Read Together" by Mary Ann Hoberman

I’m a huge advocate for reading to children and any book that encourages this gets an A+ in my opinion. The author clearly agrees with me and goes one step further. She’s written a book that’s designed to be co-read by an adult and a youngster.

The stories in this book are entertaining, humorous and educational. For example, “The Dime” tells the story of one pig who loses his dime and the friend who just so happens to find a dime. They realize it’s the same coin, so they split it up and buy a book to share. So, in just this one story alone the author has managed to address honesty, sharing, problem solving and math. Brilliant! All of the stories in “You Read to Me, I'll Read to You/Very Short Stories to Read Together” are equally as good as “The Dime”.

The illustrations are adorable and aren’t only there for accompaniment. They contribute to each tale and at times tell a story all their own. They’re colorful and whimsical, and are sure to delight even the youngest child.
