Each Monday at dawn, Mrs. Nelly McNosh brings out a barrel and does a big wash.

Mrs. McNosh's wash is certainly big-and definitely wacky. You'll be surprised to see what is hanging on her clothesline by the end of the day!

Sarah Weeks's hilarious tale, complemented by Nadine Bernard Westcott's lighthearted illustrations, is perfect for reading aloud.

User Review  - Kirstin Kemppainen - Goodreads

Mrs. McNosh hangs up some pretty silly things on her clothes line. This book is very predictable and all of the pictures go along with the text so student's will be able to read larger words than normally with picture support. Read full review

User Review  - Rachel Dalton - Goodreads

This is simply a fun (and funny) book that brings lots of laughter in a preschool or primary classroom. It is also a rhyming book. I might use this story to prompt a rhyming activity where students think of their own items to hang up on the clothes line. Read full review
