If You Love to Rhyme

If you love to rhyme, check out these great authors:

  • Giles Andreae
  • Mary Ann Hoberman
  • Charlotte Pomerantz
  • Judy Sierra
  • Lisa Wheeler
  • J. Patrick Lewis
  • Alice Schertle
  • Linda Smith
The following types of books tend to gravitate toward a rhyming structure. If your rhyming text doesn't fit one of these, it's still okay, just make sure you have a solid reason for it besides "because kids like rhyme."
  • alphabet books
  • bedtime books
  • comparative books
  • cumulative stories
  • motion/movement themes
  • numbers/counting
  • seasons/months
  • musical themes or elements
  • wordplay, such as puns, onomatopoeia, alliteration, etc.
Have fun rhyming today! Wanna share a quick couplet with us?

Keep on keepin' on...

    Glad to see you are Catherine M. Johnson now and not kangaroobee (although that was fun). Hope you have a great visit with your folks.
