Merle Peek does an excellent job at getting kindergarteners to be actively involved in this book. I am currently majoring in Elementary Education and I did a bulletin board on this book and everyone loved it! My professor said this was a classic color book. The book is about Katy, it's her birthday and all her friends wear different color clothing to her party. From yellow sweater to green sneakers to pink hat, this book has all the basic colors. This was a song that was written into a book, so it's very rhythmic and is easy to follow. The song is on the back of the book, so all children can enjoy! I loved it and would recommend it to all beginning readers!! Try and read it, what do you got to lose?? I give this book five stars!!
I remember reading this book back in kindergarten and the first grade. It was the first book I ever learned to read. I loved this book so much that I read it until I had it memorized. It's too bad the original cover is not printed in this edition. I'm going to pass this one down to my cousin, Adam, whose only 4. Hopefully, we can continue the tradition so this will be his first book he ever learns to read.
The younger loves the beautiful pictures and singing along. The older loves looking for all the little details in the pictures. They both love substituting the names of the characters for their own friends' names! Both learned their colors through this book without realizing what they were actually doing. This is one book I don't mind reading over and over.
Mary Wore Her Red Dress is a delightful story using color. Youngsters in the beginning grades will love the story and the song as they learn the colors. Lovely detailed illustrations add to the text. A must have for all primary grades and home story times.
I always use this book during my Pre-K color unit. I had misplaced mine and had to have a replacement. The kids always love this classic tale. We found several versions on youtube and sang along to those after we read.
I bought this book for my nephew and the entire family has enjoyed his singing the pages, he had it memorized in no time and he is only 2 years old!!! I would recommend this book to anyone with young children, not just for their enjoyment but for the entire family.
This is a very simple book of a song (and props to the author for bothering to include the music in the back! I hate it when they don't, and then I can't figure out how to sing the song. My edition didn't come with the CD) which those of us who listen to Wee Sing might recognize. This is a very simple "zipper" song - you can "zip" new words in and out as needed. $NAME wore his/her $COLOR $CLOTHING all day long! As such, it's bound to be popular among small children.I have two small complaints about the book. First, I personally don't find it that interesting as an adult. I'm putting this right away into my giveaway pile and it'll go to my niece's kindergarten class on her birthday. (I like to give books to the class on their birthdays, I think it's better for everybody than cupcakes and candy.) Just because *I* do not like it doesn't mean much - I *know* small children like it. I haven't rated it down because of this, I just found it a little boring for me. If you're the sort of parent whose kids want books read over and over and over again, go read this book before you buy it. Make sure it won't bore YOU.Second, I don't like that the book is written in ALL CAPS. Aside from the fact that this is harder to read, when I read to my young niece (who is 4), I put my finger under the lines as an example. I can picture many teachers using this book in the classroom, pointing out words as an example. Children young enough for books like this really need to see them written in a normal way, not in capital letters. So I took a star off for that. It's not a HUGE problem, but it's one that could've been easily remedied by typing normally.
I began my quest for searching for this book after a chat with my daughter's teacher. During school (part of their reading curriculum) this book was introduced to the students. My daughter is 1 1/2 years old & has an affinity for reading. She knows the book front and back; takes it everywhere she goes; and NEVER tires of "All Day Long". I cannot thank the teacher and author, Merle Peek for fueling that fire for reading in such a young age. I am grateful for because I could not find this book anywhere. Mary Wore Her Red Dress and Henry Wore His Green Sneakers would be a great gift for any child that is beginning to learn how to read.
