Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young selected by Jack Prelutsky

Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very YoungThe over 200 poems featured in Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young were written by a number of different authors and were selected for inclusion in the book by Jack Prelutsky.  The illustrations in the book are the work of Marc Brown.

Anna and I took many days to go through the book and had great fun with it.  We borrowed a copy from our local library but this is one of those books that I'd love to have in our own library.

In the grownups section of Jack Prelutsky's website he provides a link to a PDF of Tips For Reading with the Very Young.  In it he talks about his book Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young and says "The poems are on themes that very young children can relate to, such as nature, bedtime, animals, weather, food, the world of make-believe, and of course, children’s own thoughts and feelings. Many of the poems mimic the experiences children have as they discover the world around them."

If you're wanting to make a special effort to share some poems with your child during Poetry Month, Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young is a book you should check out.
