Silly Sally

Silly Sally

Silly Sally is going to town but in her own very special way. She's "walking backwards, upside down." This is a giggily, wiggily romp of a book that keeps getting better and better. Who does she meet on her way into town? This is a mix of rhyme and silliness and just plain old fun. Great read aloud for a storytime.

Suggested by Librarian Ruth Ingulsrud as a good text example for teaching tone.  The tone of this book would be "silly and light-hearted" as represented by the "color and the fun."

In contrast the SPIDER AND THE FLY would teach tone:  Somber and spooky mood: "The Spider and the Fly" by Mary Botham Howitt (black and white with old-movie type silver tones)  shared by Librarian Ruth Ingulsrud
