Into the Tub


Into the Tub (Children's Book)

Young children will have fun getting into – and out of – the tub with Sadie. A precocious mouse with a mind of her own, the defiant Sadie is gently coaxed into a bath and later into bed by her patient mommy.

There’s more to story time than just reading aloud!

Into the Tub easily teaches PreK and Kindergarten parents to use the following three essential reading strategies with their children:
• Picture Talk - Expands vocabulary and enhances prediction skills
• Chime Time - Develops phonological awareness
• Tell It Again - Strengthens comprehension skills by retelling the story

These strategies, plus the additional activities included in the back of the book, assist parents in teaching reading readiness skills when reading with children as young as two. Rather than just giving a book to students, teachers can use Into the Tub to help them model and practice the Story Time Strategies with parents during:
• Kindergarten Orientation
• Literacy Workshops
• Parent Conferences
• Parent Involvement Activities

Great for Title I schools, Headstart and districts with parent involvement initiatives!
