We read it before bath time and then play wishy-washy in the tub which keeps her giggling.

I chose the discount, knowing that I was still overpaying but happy to have a copy of this hard to get book in my hands.

You children/students will love this book and will in time learn to read it themselves, just as my kindergartners did.

Be prepared to read it over and over again. The pre-schoolers laugh and giggle. They love to say "Wishy-Washy" and can't wait til the next page that opens up. A short enough book, even your littlest reader knows the next page.

I first came across this book while student teaching and fell in love instantly. I have used it for many theme units - letter (W), farm unit, and rhyming words unit. I have even made flannel board pieces to go along with the story and put in my literacy centers. My supervising teachers loved the flannel pieces so much they had me make them some also. You children/students will love this book and will in time learn to read it themselves, just as my kindergartners did. GET THIS BOOK :).

Format: Paperback
Ms Wishy-Washy is a colorful picture book for new readers. The cow, pig, and duck see the mud, and they wade, roll, and waddle in it. Ms Wishy-Washy then scrubs each animal clean. Then guess what the animals do next?
The book presents one word change per page and gives the new reader enough repetitions so that the reader learns the repeated words. The illustrations are marvelous. Children love this book, but so do adults.

This is the only book my 8 month old daughter will pay attention to when we read to her. She actually laughs out loud to it! It helps to read it in a bad British accent! We read it before bath time and then play wishy-washy in the tub which keeps her giggling. Love it!

I LOVE Mrs. Wishy-Washy. I used many of Joy Cowley's books when I taught Kindergarten. I had almost evey Big Book of Mrs. Wishy-Washy and they were some of the children's favorites. I am now at home with my 3 year old twins and 15 month old daughter and was so excited to see this book in our bookstore one day. I thought they were only available through Rigby reading programs. Anyhow, I bought it as soon as I saw it and my twins love it! It is a wonderful predictable book and is great for teaching some pre-reading skills as well as just enjoying the story. Also, it is the perfect length for wiggly toddlers/preschoolers. Short and sweet.

This book is so wonderful for little ones and very easy to read "just one more time" - although for some reason when I read this to my class, I used a british accent for the Mrs. Strange, but the kids loved, loved it!
