Old Hat New Hat, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In OLD HAT NEW HAT the first few pages carry the reader well into the plot simply by the repetition of three words.

Gradually new words are introduced, the pace is quickened and suddenly even the earliest or slowest reader has 'read a book'.

Bright and early books help even the youngest children get ready to read.

Simple stories and basic concepts are humorously presented in rhythm and rhyme.

Pictures that fully explain the text help even babies make the important connection between word and meaning.

It's never too early to find out that 'Learning to read is fun'.

Review by

Didn't realize the Berenstain Bears went this young. Anyway, here we have a fantastic vocabulary-building tool that shouts out its textures (fuzzy! holey! crooked! etc.!) and gives the adult reader a chance to do some fun prosodic and voicing stuff reading out all the different kinds of hats.
