You know how flies can be aggravating? Well in this story called, Tiny Little Fly, this tiny little fly is no exception. In this story he manages to bother a tiger, a hippo, and an elephant, who are much larger and stronger than he is, and still survives. This fun read aloud is great for preschool to first grade children. Rosen uses different verbs to describe how the larger animals would like to destroy the fly but to no avail. This is also a great book to identify rhyming words and repetitive language. At the end of the book the open-up-the-flap pages make a satisfying conclusion.
