Shout! Shout it Out!
( Denise Fleming, Henry Holt $16.99 Score: )

Kids do love to shout and in this "knowing and naming" book, Fleming invites them to do exactly that. She starts with colorful numerals that kids are invited to shout the nnames of as you point. She moves on from there to the letters of the alphabet, colors, and finally animals. Kids that know these things will find it fun, no doubt to shout them out. Those who are still unsure will gain from the repetition and no doubt enjoy shouting what they do know. Though adults may want earplugs, kids love any excuse to shout and this one is just right for storytime sharing in class, library or home.

Play It!
Now Hear This!

Tell the players that you are going to clap out a number. They must wait till you put your hands down before they can shout it out. The first person to guess your number gets to clap next. With older players you can do simple math facts by clapping out 2 pause 2..players must shout out 2 + 2 is 4.

Things That Go Together
Play a fast round of things that go together. A leader begins the game by thinking of two things that go together, such as salt and pepper. The leader says "Salt" the first person to say "Pepper" becomes the leader. You can play a variation of this with opposites. The leader says one word and someone must shout out the opposite, as in yes/no or high/low.

           A few years ago we published several books with suggested books and follow-up games that extend the book experience. One collection Read It Play It is for playing with babies and toddlers. The other is for preschool and early school years children. We also did a collection in Spanish, featuring books that were in Spanish or were bilingual.
