Row Row Row Your Boat by Iza Trapani1. This book has not won any awards.
2. I think this book is appropriate for kindergarten and first grade.
3. In this book a family of bears are rowing down a stream. Along the way they have some issues with their boat cooperating. Through song and awesome drawings of bears full of expression, this book comes to life.
4. My favorite part of this book was the look on the bears faces when they lose control of the boat for a little bit. I think the words to the book offer a few vocabulary words which is always important in my books. I think this is a fun way to combine literature and song.
5. I would use this book as a read aloud. First, I would read the book to the students. After the reading, I would put the music on and sing the book to the students. The next day I would have the words posted on chart paper and have the students read and sing with me. Another activity I would have the students do is come up to the chart paper and circle rhyming words.
