Sue MacDonald Had a Book at Amazon.
From a critically acclaimed
biographer and an award winning cartoonist comes a debut
picture book that takes a traditional sing-along tune and
puts a brand new twist on it. SUE MACDONALD HAD A BOOK uses
the rhythmic structure of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" to
provide the story's framework. It's a "vowel" sing-along!
With playful characters and adventurous scenarios, this book
is an excellent choice for learning about vowels.
What would you do if a bunch of letters jumped right off the
page while you were reading a book? Run after them, of
course! Join Sue MacDonald as she travels from a railroad
station to a sewer to a mountain peak and more, all in an
attempt to capture her renegade vowels. Reading a book has
never been so interactive!
Jim Tobin's clever textóbased on a favorite children's songó
is perfectly coupled with Dave Coverly's winning
illustrations. Get ready for a madcap adventure starring
five very important letters!

this is particularly well-suited for use in the classroom or
for a parent/child sing-along." - Kirkus Reviews
