Jump! by Scott M. Fisher was a great find this past weekend from our local bookstore, Cover to Cover.  I love when I go to a conference and great books are right there for my viewing.  I'm always looking for books my emerging readers can use as a shared reading and easily participate in.  This book encourages oral language participation and participation through movement.    My students will love to read JUMP! with energy and physically jump as each animal does in reaction to something that would scare them.  For example, it starts like this...

I'm a bug. 
I'm a bug.
I'm a snug little bug,
and I'm sleeping on a jug.
Unitl I see a frog,
and I...
(turn the page)

You just have to pick pick up this book to see the other animals that jump in response to seeing a bigger animal.  I can't wait to share this book later today with my students.  I know they will be identifying rhymes with enthusiasm and enjoyment.

  1. This book seems really interesting. When I read the title of the post, I immediately thought about kids jumping every time the word "Jump" comes.
