Hameray Publishing is releasing over 90 new titles in the The Joy Cowley Collection and The Joy Cowley Early Birds Collection. To get the word out, I have been asked to review one of her Mrs. Wishy Washy titles. (All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated for this post.) Keep reading and you will not only have a chance to win over $400 in leveled readers, finger puppets and 3 audio CD's, but you can enter to win a Mrs. Wishy Washy big book using the Rafflecopter at the end of this post.
Reading this book with my students was a fun way to break away from our basal reader. They had learned with Mrs. Wishy Washy in the past and they knew there would be some animals in the story, which they loved. The illustrations were crisp, clear, and very detailed. We were learning about adjectives, so I had different groups of students work with different illustrations in the story to describe them. I projected the pages to my Promethean board and they did this during centers. They came up with some great describing sentences using the illustrations.
