"The B on your Thumb is clever, engaging, educational and fun. I wish I had thought of it."
—Craig Smith, author / songwriter of The Wonky Donkey
The B on Your Thumb is a book of 60 hilariously illustrated rhymes and delightful ditties to boost early reading—each poem teaches a specific sound, spelling, or rule. Using rhythm and wordplay, they promote phonics awareness, thinking skills, and literacy. But most of all, this book delights young readers with the fun and silliness of the English language.
This is a book where words like to play,
where letters get cross when they don’t get their way.
There are sounds to make and jokes to uncover.
An owl in your bowl, for you to discover.
Meet the K on your knee, who’s ready for fun,
and don’t be alarmed by the B on your thumb!
An introduction instructs grown-ups how to use the book and extensive activities at the end allow children to build on their learning. Grouped into three categories—sounds, silent letters and secrets, and words that sound the same—the poems include:See with Two EesThe Story of Q and UThe Rain in the TrainRidiculous PhEnough of UffCertainly a CThe Most ImportANTWhich WitchLearning to read has never been so much fun!The B on Your Thumb is a must for every young family’s bookshelf.
