Rhyme, rhythm, and music are essential parts of a quality early childhood program. The authors of the perennial favorite, Where is Thumbkin? have created activities children will love to accompany the 250 rhymes and songs in this invaluable new literacy book.

Each group of songs and rhymes has literacy activities, learning center activities, and theme connections.

The literacy activities enhance reading readiness skills, develop listening and oral language skills, provide opportunities to build comprehension skills, and support print awareness and letter recognition.
The learning center activities provide easy ways to integrate the songs and rhymes into the daily curriculum.
The theme connections enable teachers to use the activities with themes they currently have planned.
