Comments for Hop on Pop
Hop on Pop: 11/26/06
Hop on Pop was one of my brother's favorites as a child and I remember how we would laugh when Mom would get tongue tied reading the book out loud. Now that Sean is old enough, it is one of his favorites. In fact, today at Denny's, he read the book to all of us while we were waiting to give our order.
Hop on Pop is a book heavy on short and rhyming words. Each page starts with a list of rhyming words like: day, play and then a simple sentence (or two) using those rhyming words. The book is simple enough and predictable enough to give beginning readers the confidence to try reading. But it's tricky enough to give over confident parents places to trip up and make mistakes to the amusement of the younger readers.
