You Read to Me, I'll Read to You:
Very Short Mother Goose Tales to Read
Megan Tingley Books, Little, Brown & Co. • 2005 • 32 pages • ISBN: 978-0-3162-0715-7
illustrated by Michael Emberley
This book, the third in the award-winning YOU READ TO ME series, features very short Mother Goose tales with a twist. Young readers will discover what happens when Humpty Dumpty begs a doctor to fix his broken shell, why Little Miss Muffet befriends the spider beside her, and how Jack Sprat and his wife work out their differences.
Again, as in the first two books, the stories consist of rhyming dialogues with each character’s lines shown in a different color. Rhyme, rhythm, and repetition, along with Michael Emberley’s wonderfully droll illustrations, once again work their magic in drawing new readers into these fun-filled stories.
