Tiny little fly…Michael Rosen.

A cheeky little fly is causing mischief in this week’s book of the week! Another rhyming book which as you all know I love. Rhyming in stories encourages participation and builds vocabulary, however what makes this story unique is its huge, engaging illustrations which also compliment the rhyme. Children can follow the fly on his journey and they can ‘read’ the animal part he has landed on using the picture as well as the rhyme to help them predict it. The story also uses the same sequence of words throughout it encouraging children to join in once they’ve read it a few times.

It’s a fun story with a few teaching points along the way 🙂

 

…Great big Hippo winks one eye, says to himself, “I’m going to catch that fly!”…
