"Animals like to eat,
So do you.
How do the animals eat? This simple rhythmic story is a delight to
read. Chipmunks, beavers, cows, frogs, pigs, and more, all have their own
way of eating.
"How does a cow eat?
This story goes through 10 animals, and then does a
recap of the animals and the way they eat. Which makes this story excellent
for young children and young readers. You can really evolve your preschooler
in the story. During the recap have them tell how each animal eats.
Preschoolers love to repeat what you say. With the right voice reflections
on the animal noises, you can get a great rhythmic beat going. Your
preschooler will certainly be chuckling by the end.
does a terrific job of illustrating this story. The animals are large and
loveable. The illustrations cover both sides of the open book, making it a
great story for group reading. The illustrations are done in colored pencil
and colored in using computer software, making the illustrations bright and
bold. The text in this book also adds to the fun. Sever different fonts and
colors are used for each eating action of the animals.
I recommend this story for preschoolers of all
ages. It is a story you preschooler will have you reading again and again.
