Rhythm and Rhyme

I have been absent from blogging for several months as I have been working on my latest story written in verse.

Today however I came across sad news that one of the true geniuses of meter and rhyme has passed away.

Jean Marzollo,  Author of more than 150 books.  Among these books a series which originally published in 1992 by Scholastic entitled “I Spy.”

This series of books present more than a game of search and find with rhyming text, it is a visual adventure.  Accompanying her perfectly metered text are elaborate scenes with photography by Walter Wick.

These books teach children word/object association, vocabulary and rhyme.

If you haven’t enjoyed this series, it is well-worth spending some enjoyable reading time with your little ones.
