In The Nice Mice in the Rice by Brian P. Cleary, the author uses silly sentences and rhyming words to teach young children long vowel sounds. Lots of fun illustrations and repetition of words help ease children along. The sentences become more challenging as the book progresses, including what the author calls “discovery” words – extra words for the young reader to locate. Part of the “Sounds Like Reading” series.
After repeatedly being encouraged by customers to read the book, I finally surrendered myself to it. From the title of the book, I thought I was reading about the different type of cheeses. As I was reading it, I was mildly surprise that it was about something else completely. The message of the book resounded with me and I could not put it down. It was my companion for the next 48 hours. It went with me during my break, lunch, and dinner. After reading it, I came to a better understanding about myself and my work environment. Even though the book was not about the cheese, I “smell the cheese” everyday!
