Rediscovered a favorite from childhood. ( )

(Read Aloud) In this book a boy and a girl are introduced to a series of different and interesting characters. Many of the creatures they’re introduced to aren’t real and they’re made up fo fit into the rhyme scheme. I like the rhyming of the book, but it was very repetitive (although I’m not the intended audience for this book). I believe this is a good read aloud book because there are pictures to keep children engaged and the storyline is simple while the word choice is fun. This is a fun book to read aloud because of the tongue twister quality this book has, and it may encourage children to want to read it out loud for themselves.

From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.
First words
One fish
two fish
red fish
blue fish.
Why are they
sad and glad and bad?
I do not know.
Go ask your dad.
From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.
Oh me! Oh my!
Oh me! Oh my!
What a lot
of funny things go by.
Not one of them
is like another
Don’t ask us why.
Go ask your mother.
By the light of the moon,
by the light of a star,
they walked all night
from near to far.

I would never walk.
I would take a car.
