Reviews - What do customers think about Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash (Laura Geringer Books)?

Teacher's Grade: A  Jan 10, 2008
The at-risk students in my 2nd grade classroom thoroughly enjoy this rhyming tale, and it is has been an excellent aid in my efforts to improve their fluency. The bouncy beat of the writing, and the infectious illustrations combine to make the book a welcoming experience, even for children who have difficulty reading.
Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash  Dec 2, 2007
This story is a very enjoyable story for children. We read this story when our daughter was around three. She was very engaged in the story at that time when she was not yet reading. She continued to enjoy the story even now at eight. Even though she is now older she will recall the story freguently. The story is very engaging and the pictures are very vivid and the bird appears in every picture. I would have her identify where the bird was in the picture. The words are funny and rhyme which was alot of fun for her. Once she was reading it continued to be a favorite. We purchased another copy of the book for a niece because this story was so enjoyable.
Mrs McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash by Sarah Weeks  Nov 6, 2004
It is a silly happy Monday at the McNosh house, when Mrs. McNosh washes and hangs up the mail and a kite and the phone with the regular laundry. The story rhymnes and moves along briskly. The story goes through all of the possible things a woman could wash and hang up on a clothes line, until at the end she washes herself and her favorite char, and then hangs them up too. It appears to be a pen and in illustrations painted with acrylics, although it could be gauche. The illustrations are simple, but with enough detail to be interesting. The illustrations have a lot of motion and sadeways movement, making for rhoughts of the wind holding up the wash. It would stimulate the imagination and make a child of three to six laugh.
Who is Mrs. Mc Nosh?  Nov 5, 2004
At the end of this past school year I found Mrs. McNosh hangs up her wash in my six-year old son's backpack. I guessed that the teacher ordered extra books or was just cleaning out the room since she will be teaching another grade come this fall.

Whatever the reason we read the book two times and I discovered it the other day under my son's bed ripped in the middle throughout the book. It seems my son is not fond of the book either and did not want to endure another read from me on this one.

It seems Mrs. McNosh likes to hang up whatever she can find and within sight including the turkey she is roasting for dinner. Every Monday by dusk she is finished with this chore and takes off her apron, lets her hair down and hangs herself up on the clothesline while sitting in a chair.

It takes Mrs. McNosh all morning to get her laundry washed and she hangs it up when the sun is out. The dresses, shirts, underwear, nightgown and skirts are all hung up. The following page she hangs up stockings, shoes and then wrings out the newspaper and hangs that up. At this point even the bird is looking at Mrs. McNosh oddly wondering why the paper. This is a rhyming book that would be best read to a group of toddlers or preschoolers. Her clothes are all colorful solid colors and prints
One of the funniest stories ever!  Mar 16, 2004
This book is great for preschoolers (and myself) thru 2nd graders. If you like a funny rhymming story, this is the book!The verses in this book are surprisingly lighthearted and funny; perfect for read-alouds! Mrs. McNosh does her wash and HANGS EVERY VERSE ON THE CLOTHESLINE THROUGHOUT THE STORY! Paired with Ms. Wescott bubbly drawings, you'll laugh while you read and laugh after you've read, then laugh some more before you reread!
