Chips and Cheese and Nana’s Knee’s: What is Alliteration by Brian Cleary -ESSENTIAL

Cleary, Brian Chips and Cheese and Nana’s Knee’s: What is Alliteration 32 pages Millbrook Press (Lerner), 2015. $18.00 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G NON-FICTION
This book defines alliteration and then proceeds to the show the reader Alliteration in action with tons of examples, exceptions, and real life ties. Features bright fun characters interacting with each other in settings that students will relate to. Word choices are silly and fun for readers.
This author does a wonderful job with language arts topics. We have many of his book already and this one will be included right away. My favorite thing is that rhythm and rhyme is seamless and well crafted,  unlike many children’s authors who resort to odd word choices to force the scheme to work out. I love the illustrations, they are bright and sloppy and incredibly appealing. Excellent teacher resource.
