The Noisy Farm by Marni McGee, If you Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff (most in this series I believe have few words), Splat the Cat Sings Flat (any of this series I believe have few words – aimed at early readers, so they’re great for finding the rhythm of words, adding instruments etc. Also, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a fabulous book, based off the children’s song, lots of repeating phrases.

One of my faves is “What Charlie Heard” by Mordecai Gerstein is a lovely and fascinating biography of Charles Ives. This is a must-see. Illustrations include sound words to describe what’s goign on in the picture. No repeating phrases, hence it’s best for kids Grade 3 and up.
