One! Two! Three! This Book 's for Me!
The purpose of One! Two! Three! This Book 's for Me
is to teach children of ages 2-5 to read and count
by using picto-wordsTM:
images located just below the text that help a child to guess the words.
The book uses brightly colored pictures and
lively lines with rhythm and rhyme, and it
features a word/picture glossary.
One! Two! Three! This Book 's for Me is designed
to appeal to the child
rather than the parent.
It was toddler tested in day-care and preschool centers.
Many children became quite excited when they realized
that they could participate in the reading process.
The text is all capitalized, which is
best for kids who are just beginning to learn letters and words.
With all of the above features,
you can set your child on a path to early learning
with One! Two! Three! This Book 's for Me.
Educational Aspects of the Book:
James A. Cox of Midwest Book Review says
"One! Two! Three! This Book's For Me! is
a simple yet enjoyable
counting picture book presenting
the numbers 1 to 10, illustrated with simple, bold
color pictures. A fine
read-aloud rhyme text helps reinforce the concept of numbers
in young people's minds. One! Two! Three! This
Book's For Me! is especially recommended
for children ages 2 to 5 and an excellent addition for family, day-care
center, preschool, and kindergarten collections."
Selected as a "Best of 2002" Book by January Magazine:
"I'm leery of children's books that purport to teach something. But
in the case of One! Two! Three! This Book's For Me! the author actually succeeds."
- Pamela C. Patterson, January Magazine
