Elephant and Piggie - the Perfect Stories to Share
Here is a video I downloaded today. These two best buddies have been practicing for some time - getting the voices just right. They've inspired other readers to buddy up and take turns reading different Elephant and Piggie books. I love these books for many reasons - but this has to be one of the best.
All Elephant and Piggie stories lend themselves nicely to this type of shared reading, but there are others as well. You Read to Me and I'll Read to You books by Mary Ann Hoberman, Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman, and Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel all work equally well. Try them and see! Most children love this type of cozy taking-turns reading experiences.
