Click, Clack, Splish, Splash: 01/09/08
Click, Clack, Splish, Splash is the third Doreen Cronin book Sean and I have read. As with the previous ones, this one is full of humor that parents and children can appreciate.
Click, Clack, Splish, Splash is aimed at younger readers than either Click Clack Moo or Diary of a Worm. This book is an introduction to counting but it is also another funny story of the animals getting the best of the farmer. This time, they are liberating the gold fish.
Harriet and Sean both like this story. Sean likes it for the animals being sneaky. Harriet like the illustrations by Betsy Lewin and the rhythm and the rhymes.
This looks interesting. Yet another book you've caught my attention with. I teach English to young Japanese children. I wonder how well this would work. Usually a book with many repetitive sounds is best (because they obviously can't understand a full story)."
The book should work fine. It's not very long, has lots of repetition and the illustrations by themselves work as a funny picture book.
I love her books! "
I loved Click Clack Moo!
Also, I saw your contest for Four Wives. Did you get an ARC of the book? You might want to have a look at my review which I posted this week...I really liked the book!"
I am on FSB's mailing list too. Mine two copies are from them as well. I almost commented on your review last night to say I was reading and reviewing it too. I'm about 3/4 finished and loving it so far. I'll have my review posted in a few days."
I use click clack moo to teach the concept of labor day to my fourth graders...they actually understand it thanks to that book!"
