Children are often told to settle down and be quiet. Here is a great picture book that encourages kids to shout and rejoice in their own knowledge. With bright colors and unique paper art, Denise Fleming creates page after page of happy, multicultural children exhibiting their knowledge of the alphabet, numbers, colors etc. Toddlers and preschoolers, whether or not they have mastered all these facts, will be able to join in the fun. This book is sure to bring smiles to adults and children alike. Be prepared for repeat readings!
This is a great book to encourage the early literacy skill of print awareness. Print awareness is a child’s realization that words are everywhere and that each word has meaning. Learning how a book is held and how to follow words on a page are all part of this early literacy skill.
