Brand New Mrs. Wishy-Washy Titles and a Giveaway!!

Who doesn't LOVE Mrs. Wishy-Washy?? Joy Cowley, best know for the Mrs. Wishy-Washy books has just released 45 new titles. There are 5 new Mrs. Wishy-Washy books (YAH!!) as well as many others which revisit some of her classic characters in all new adventures.

I recently had the opportunity to review several of the new books. As always, your students will adore Mrs. Wishy-Washy's adventures with her animals! They will also find the other stories and characters funny and easy to relate to. All of the books have colorful pictures which offer strong visual support for the reader. One feature I especially liked in all three books was the before reading, during reading, after reading, and text features chart displayed on the inside back cover. Joy Cowley's books have always been some of my favorite for shared and guided reading. Learn more about the other books in the series and a fun set of Mrs. Wishy-Washy finger puppets here.

If you love Mrs. Wishy-Washy and Joy Cowley, go here to enter to win her new Orange set collection. Leave a comment below if you enter because I would love to hear from you. The giveaway ends at midnight on June 25th. Good luck to all of you and happy reading!!

I entered the contest. My students love Joy Cowley, especially Mrs. Wishy-Washy! We don't get money to buy books for our classrooms, so winning these books would be amazing!

Mrs. Wishy Washy captivates all children in my integrated Kindergarten classroom. The pattern sentences and reoccurring high frequency words, along with the rhythm of each book is a mainstay for teaching reading.
Mrs. Wishy Washy's books / big books have come home with me for the Summer. :-)
Thank you for helping all children truly love reading/ books. This alone is awesome!!!
