Over 35 original poems have been written especially for beginning readers. The simplicity of the poems and the repetitiveness of the sounds are designed to help young students develop important reading skills: phonemic awareness, decoding skills, and fluency.
The book suggests great activities for using the poems in the classroom, including ideas for connecting poetry to all areas of the curriculum.
