NEW BOOK! - Looking for Color Rhymes

   Through my many years of experience as a reading teacher, I know the importance of rhyming as a reading readiness skill. Young children enjoy and benefit from listening to pleasing rhyming patterns. Those who struggle with early phonics lessons usually have difficulty discerning and creating pairs of rhyming words. I wrote Looking for Color Rhymes to help emergent readers practice this very essential skill.

   Looking for Color Rhymes was a unique venture. I enlisted ten enthusiastic children to be part of my project. I dubbed them “The Color Rhyme Kids” and they were each given a color and an assignment. Their task was to find four items to rhyme with their color name.  The vibrant photos illustrate each of their discoveries. The rhyming objects are all prominently placed in the pictures to make it easier for the young listeners to fill in the correct rhyme. I hope you all enjoy Looking for Color Rhymes!
