The Hungry Animal A-B-C Song Sing to Read series By Wilma Salzman Big Book Animals eat foods starting with the alphabet letter. In slanted print. Big Books are based on traditional songs, and are perfect for collaboration between the music and classroom teacher to promote early literacy. Printed on 11" x 17" card stock; engaging illustrations ready to be colored. The books are comb-bound on the bottom to facilitate handling by the teacher/ leader - after coloring, the pages can be laminated and reassembled on the comb. Also includes a black-line master for making little books for each child. While using their own little books, children learn to track the text independently and build a vocabulary of sight words. For 4-6 year old emergent readers and ESL students.
