Rhyme Ready

Today is Day 3 of Rhyming Picture Book Month, and I’m already dreaming in rhyme. Registration is open through April 16, if you want to, also.

‘Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs,’ written by Linda Ashman and beautifully illustrated by Lauren Stringer, was my book of the day yesterday for RhyPiBoMo. It’s a slower-paced concept book about the many types of homes where animals and people live. The language is rhythmic and full of rich imagery.

Rhyming picture books aren’t all rollicking, high-energy blockbusters. The pace and rhythm can vary a lot, as well as the subject matter. Since I love books about the natural world, ‘Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs’ was a fun discovery yesterday.
