Oh How I LOVE Mrs. Wishy Washy

Oh, yes I do! We are gearing up for our big farm unit next week and Mrs. Wishy Washy is at the top of our reading list!  I love that the text is simple and fun, and the children LOVE to read it over and over again!

Hameray Publishing recently sent me two of their brand new emergent readers in a NEW Wishy Washy series! SO EXCITED.  (They have not compensated me in any way for my opinions – just the awesome books for me to take a peek at and give my honest opinions!)

Listen to Joy Cowley herself talk about it…

Oh my! I think I’ll have to read Mrs. Wishy Washy with a British accent from now on! LOVE! Isn’t she the cutest!!??

Back to the books…

The illustrations are GORGEOUS and the text is in a great easy to read font!  The books are available in a big book format and as small readers for independent use.  I MUST get my hands on some of the big books – the kids LOVE reading this as a whole group! 

and just LOOK at these adorable finger puppets!! How great are these for retelling?!
