The Early Learner - October 1, 2003
Always fascinated with children's books, author and illustrator Iza Trapani explores the pure simplicity of words and matches them with pictures of her own making. In Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
and I'm a Little Teapot
, detailed illustrations and charming characters tell stories that teach as well as delight.
Sue Morris, a teacher at the YMCA preschool in Canandaigua, New York, said, "The books will be very useful when we do our unit on stars, and another on imagination. But the many verses of the songs and lovely illustrations make them useful anytime during story time."
Keeping children busy and productive is the number-one goal in every preschool classroom. Twinkle, Twinkle and I'm a Little Teapot don't disapppoint. "The children react positively to things that they know," said Sue. "They also like to show off, so they sing along."
Like these two books, others offered by Charlesbridge add imaginative new verses to familiar classics that will have children singing, laughing and dreaming of great adventures.
Sue scored the books "the best" on eight different criteria, ranging from "educational value" to "likelihood we would use this product."
"I wouldn't change a thing about either book," concluded Sue. "The illustrations are so well done and the new verses are fun."
