You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Tall Tales to Read Together by Mary Ann Hoberman, Michael Emberley

This book uses traditional reading teaching techniques (alliteration, rhyme, and repetition) to invite young children to read along with peers or an adult. With clear, color-coded typography, and sly, lively illustrations, this collection is sure to entertain while encouraging reading skills and interaction with others. Readers will relish these new twists on familiar folklore characters, including Johnny Appleseed, Annie Oakley, Paul Bunyan, John Henry, and many more!
