Storytime: Rub-a-Dub-Sub

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today we read Rub-a-Dub Sub

Another funny story from Linda Ashman! I not only read this story out loud for storytime, by request, I re-read and re-read and re-read it until I lost count! And just like Starry Safari, there is that one part of the story that just makes you laugh a good laugh.

In Rub-a-Dub-Sub, our young character is having an underwater adventure. This story is a wonderful teaching tool for teaching about word families and teaching rhyming words. Words such as: seal, eel; haze, maze; claw and jaw are a few of the words children will encounter in this fun story. Like Babies On The Go,Rub-a-Dub Sub has a nice collection of verbs to help build childrens' vocabularies insha'Allaah.

This book is also a wonderful resource to be used when teaching about ocean life and it can also be read to prepare the little ones for a part of their day that, for some, can be a challenge for both parent and child. A book of many purposes. Again, I won't tell you too much because I don't wish to spoil it for you *smile* but this book will be one that I recommend on A Muslim Child is Born insha'Allaah. It's just too cute a story to pass up...
