Looking for a list of books that rhyme? We’ve got 75 favorites in this post!
Most children learn to rhyme through games and books. And it’s not too late to get started!
I’ve been working at teaching my three-year-old to rhyme. It finally clicked after we played this simple game.
And she’s getting better and better at it – thanks to all the rhyming books I’ve been bringing home from the library! In this post I’ll share our favorite rhyming books for kids of all ages.
The ultimate list of books that rhyme
Down by the Bay, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott
The best way to teach rhyming is to start reading rhyming books to your baby or toddler. My almost-tw0-year-old doesn’t rhyme yet (truthfully, he hardly talks!), but he adores his board books – especially ones we can sing, like this one. And the silly song is one I don’t mind singing over and over again. Usually. Ages 0-4.
Drummer Hoff, by Barbara Emberley
This 1968 Caldecott (best picture) winner tells the story of seven soldiers who put together a cannon — and Drummer Hoff, who fires it off. The pattern will remind you of “This is the House that Jack Built,” but it’s much shorter and a lot more appealing to kids. This is another favorite of my one-year-old. Ages 1-4.
Barnyard Dance, by Sandra Boyton
Truth. I cannot get my current toddler (almost two) to listen to Sandra Boynton books yet (with the exception of Snuggle Puppy). They just aren’t his thing. But his five older siblings all had their favorites, especially this one. “Bow to the horse. Bow to the cow. Twirl with the pig if you know how.” This book of square-dancing animals is irresistible. Ages 0-3.
Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown
The simple illustrations and gentle, quiet poetry make this a lovely book for bedtime. If this book does not hold your baby’s interest, keep trying or set it aside for a few months. Like generations before her, she will learn to love it. Ages 0-2.
Ten in the Bed, by Penny Dale
I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve read this rhyming book to my toddler. We love the illustrations and the fun story of a little boy who keeps pushing his stuffed animals out of the bed. Ages 0-2.
Row, Row, Row Your Boat, by Annie Kubler
Be sure to check out this and the many other familiar rhymes illustrated by Annie Kubler. They are simply done with happy babies draw throughout. Just the right length for a tiny listener. Ages 0-2.
Busy Barnyard, by John Schindel
I have found that photographs interest babies more often than illustrations. I love the busy books series for a few reasons: they have fun photographs, they rhyme, and they’re short. Perfect for babies. We also love “Busy Piggies,” “Busy Kitties,” and “Busy Monkeys.” Ages 0-2.
Is Your Mama a Llama? by Deborah Guarino
In this classic story with Steven Kellogg’s unmatched illustrations, Lloyd the llama guesses what animal is each baby’s mama. This book works especially well for having your child complete the rhymes. I’ve found that my kids don’t start enjoying this one until they’re at least two and a half. Ages 2-5.
I Spy Little Books, by Jean Marzollo
I don’t know what it is about this series of rhyming books, but they’ve been a favorite for all my babies. I think it helps that I created a simple tune that I use as I sing the books. These books are actually the first board books that have captured my kids’ attention. You can find many books in this series. Ages 0-2.
Nursery Rhymes, by Kate Toms
Nursery rhymes are an absolute must for your toddlers and preschoolers (and even older children, too!). This beautifully illustrated collection by Kate Toms is a favorite of my one-year-old. He says very little, but the other day I heard him talking to himself as he looked at This Little Piggy. “Wee, wee, wee …” Ages 0-3.
Mouse Mess, by Linnea Asplind Riley
This rhyming tale of a mischievous mouse is a quick and fun read. “Crackle, sweep, he rakes cornflakes — and jumps into the pile he makes!” When they were first learning to talk my older kids loved to fill in the rhyming word at the end of each page. Ages 1-5.
The Lady with the Alligator Purse, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott
We love singing books, so my kids are big fans of the silly song about a baby named Tiny Tim who tries to eat a bathtub. Miss Lucy calls the doctor, the nurse… and the lady with the alligator purse! Ages 2-5.

Shoo Fly! by Iza Trapani
We enjoy many of Iza Trapani’s books in which she takes a familiar song and adds verses with her own unique illustrations. My kids can’t get enough of this one, and I love to sing it! “Shoo fly, don’t bother me, shoo fly, don’t bother me…” Ages 3-6.
I Saw an Ant on the Railroad Track, by Joshua Prince
This book was a favorite of my Five and Seven back when they were three and four years old. They wanted to hear it every time they caught a glimpse of it. Rhythmic rhyme tells the story of an ant walking on the railroad track… while a freight train comes right his way. What will switchman Jack do? This book is so fun to read and listen to! Ages 3-6.
Trashy Town, by Andrea Zimmerman
This was a big favorite at our house when my older boys were little. Mr. Gilly drives around Trashy Town collecting garbage. After each pick-up we read, “Dump it in, smash it down, drive around the trashy town!” The simple illustrations, predictable text, and of course the subject (trash!) will likely make this a winner at your house, too. Ages 2-5.
Itsy Bitsy Spider, by Iza Trapani
I’ve already mentioned that we love Iza Trapani’s books. The additional verses to our favorite rhymes are so much fun! We had a copy of this book in our back seat the other day when I was picking up some girls for a play date with my ten-year-old daughter. I love that all three of them had fun singing the book together as we drove back to our house. Ages 1-6.
Bear Snores On, by Karma Wilson
This and the other books in the series are made even better by Jane Chapman’s endearing illustrations. In the first book, many animals and birds get out of the cold and into Bear’s warm cave. As they brew tea and pop corn, Bear snores on. When he wakes up to find his friends having fun without him, Bear is distraught: “You’ve snuck in my lair, and you’ve all had fun. But me? I was sleeping… and I have had none!” Ages 2-6.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault
Here’s a favorite that deserves a place on every list of rhyming books! The lowercase letters are climbing the coconut tree, but it can’t hold them all. Chicka chicka boom boom! Uppercase letters rush to comfort their injured children. Ages 2-5.
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, by Pam Adams
Are you familiar with the silly old song? This is one of our favorite books because of the wonderful illustration with the die-cut holes – revealing all the animals the old lady swallows. My toddler liked this one too, although I had to be careful that he didn’t rip the pages. Ages 1-5.
Baby Danced the Polka, by Karen Beaumont
What a clever lift-the-flap book! We loved this simple book about a baby who just isn’t ready for his nap … so every time he’s put to bed, he gets up from the crib to dance a polka, do the boogie-woogie, dance the cha-cha, all with different stuffed animals. My favorite thing about the book is how easy it is for kids to guess the rhyming word. After they guess, lift the flap to see if they’re right. A winner! Ages 2-4.
Clap Your Hands, by Lorinda Bryan Cauley
Not only is this a wonderful rhyming book, but it’s also a book that will inspire your preschooler to get up and move. I love how the rhymes are easy for young listeners to fill in. “Reach for the sky, wiggle your toes. / Stick out your tongue and touch your _____.” Recommended! Ages 2-4.
The Very Cranky Bear, by Nick Bland
This book has become very popular, but I’ll be honest. I just didn’t care for the story. It’s about a cranky bear who encounters four animals who try to cheer him up. It felt weird to me that the sheep had to shave half her body to make a pillow for the bear and finally cheer him up. That said, the book has cute illustrations, excellent rhyme, and my three-year-old loved it. Also, it’s a best-seller. So I’m probably missing something. Ages 3-5.
Edward the Emu, by Sheena Knowles
“Edward the emu was sick of the zoo. There was nowhere to go, there was nothing to do.” So each night, Edward finds a new animal cage and pretends to be that animal. After sharing a cage with a seal, lion, and snake. Edward returns to his own cage – only to discover a new emu has taken residence there. “‘Hello, I’m Edwina! It’s nice meeting you. You’re the best thing I’ve seen since I came to the zoo!’” Children will also enjoy the sequel, Edwina the Emu. Ages 3-6.
Duck in the Truck, by Jez Alborough
This is a fun rhyming book about a duck whose truck is stuck in the muck… and the animals who help him get out. My second son (now seven years old) loved it as a toddler; in fact, he requested it every time we drove by the library. Finally he received it as a gift for his third birthday. Ages 2-5.
There’s a Wocket in My Pocket, by Dr. Seuss
This book lends itself to a lot of fun rhyming practice. The narrator rhymes nonsense words with real words by naming all the strange creatures in the house — the nupboard in the cupboard, the ghairs beneath the stairs, and the bofa on the sofa. The play on words is excellent for building phonemic awareness, too! Ages 3-6.
Noni the Pony, by Alison Lester
I include this book because it has some nice rhymes and beautiful pictures. That said, the story didn’t grab us. In fact, I’ve read it several times and still can’t remember what it’s about. Worth reading a couple of times, but probably not one you’re going to get attached to. Ages 3-4.
The Terrible Plop, by Ursula Dubosarsky
This book will remind you of Chicken Little – when the rabbits hear an apple fall in a stream and run away, terrified of “the terrible plop.” Soon all the forest animals are in a frenzy, until the rabbit comes face to face with unbelieving bear. I thought the story just okay, and the ending predictable. But my Three loves it and requests it often. She gets the final word. 🙂 Ages 3-5.
Don’t Forget the Bacon! by Pam Hutchins
This is a fun book which might remind you of that old Sesame Street sketch. As a little boy heads for the store, his mother calls, “Six farm eggs, a cake for tea, a pound of pears, and don’t forget the bacon.” Before long her son is reciting, “six fat legs, a cape for me, a flight of stairs, and don’t forget the bacon.” This is a fun story for kids of all ages, but if you want to use it to teach rhyming, use it with older listeners. Ages 3-6.
Rhymoceros, by Janik Coat
This book was a big hit at our house, and even my toddler (who loves only a very specific set of board books) wanted to listen too. We adore the lovely, textured graphics, and the rhymes such as grumpy/bumpy, stinky/inky, and tired/wired. One to own, along with another favorite by the same author, Hippoposites. Ages 1-5.
Baa Baa Black Sheep, by Iza Trapani
Here’s another of Trapani’s creative takes on common nursery rhymes. This one doesn’t flow as well as some of the others, but we still enjoyed it. In these additional verses to Baa Baa Black Sheep, the other animals are offended when the sheep doesn’t give them any of the things they ask for (milk, hay, bones, seed, etc.). As it turns out, she’s busy knitting something special for each of them. Ages 2-5.
The Gruffalo, by Julia Donaldson and Ariel Scheffler
A clever mouse outwits a hungry fox, owl, and snake by warning them of a ferocious beast whose favorite foods are roasted fox, owl ice cream, and scrambled snake. When it turns out that the Gruffalo really does exist, the mouse has one more creature to outsmart. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this one. Buy it for Christmas! Ages 3-7.
Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson
This book was an immediate hit with my kids, and even the older kids joined us on the couch. We love the funny story about a witch who keeps dropping things from her broom, and the helpful animals who return them. When a terrible dragon is ready to eat the witch, her animal friends come to her rescue. We especially love the delightful ending. Ages 3-7.
I Ain’t Gonna Paint no More! by Karen Beaumont
What I love about this book: the amazing illustrations, the way it allows students to guess the rhyming words before you turn the page, and the silly story of a child who isn’t supposed to paint anymore, but paints his whole body. What I don’t love: rhyming with heck and butt (the second one is implied) in a book for preschoolers. Ages 3-6.
Snowmen at Night, by Caralyn Buehner
So what do snowmen do at night? According to this book, they leave our yards and join their friends for snowball fights, sledding, and even snow baseball. This is a fun story, but the paintings really steal the show. This is my favorite, but you’ll find many more books by the same author (Snowmen at Christmas, Snowmen at Work, and Snowmen at Play). Ages 3-6.
Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney
This story will ring true for parents who are called back to their child’s bedroom too many times after lights out. In the end, Llama learns that sometimes his mother is busy, and he must be patient. The rhymes, fun pictures, and reassuring message combine to make this a favorite. “Mama llama’s always near, even if she’s not right here.” Ages 2-5.
Sheep in a Jeep, by Nancy Shaw
It’s hard not to fall in love with this hilarious rhyming book about five bumbling sheep and their road trip. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out! Ages 2-5.
Hand, Hand, Fingers Thumb, by Al Perkins
This is a fun rhythmic book about monkeys drumming on drums… with the catchy refrain “Dum ditty dum ditty dum dum dum.” Fun to read, listen to, and read along! Ages 0-4.
Dog on a Frog? by Kes & Claire Gray
This book is absolutely hilarious. It’s about a frog who is not happy about a dog sitting on him. As it turns out, dogs are supposed to sit on frogs. Just like cats sit on mats and frogs sit on logs. But the frog has had enough and changes the rules. Now dogs should sit on logs, cats should sit on gnats, slugs should sit on plugs … and on and on it goes. My favorite page is the one where cheetahs sit on fajitas. Definitely one to check out! Also read its companion, Frog on a Log? Ages 3-7.
Frog on a Log? by Kes Gray
This book is actually the prequel to Dog on a Frog, and it’s very similar. Cat tells Frog that all animals have a place they must sit – because it’s the right thing to do. At the end of the book, Frog learns the unfortunate truth that frogs sit on dogs. Also hilarious! Ages 3-7.
The Magic Hat, by Mem Fox
I always appreciate rhyming books which build up to the rhyme, so that your learner can guess it before turning the page. This page does just that as your child tries to guess which animal the magic hat lands on. I think it’s a cute story, but my Three didn’t care for it. I still think you should give it a try with your learners. Ages 3-5.
How Do Dinosaurs series, by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague
This is such a dear set of books; there are many in the series, and not one has disappointed me. You’ll love the beautifully illustrated dinosaurs who teach a lesson about child behavior in an appealing way. The rhymes are perfect. So well done! Ages 2-5.
I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, by Alison Jackson
I’m a fan of any retelling of I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. I guess I’m biased, because this was an old song I loved to hear my mom sing to me when I was a kid. This book is an absolutely hilarious, completely absurd Thanksgiving version of the old song. The old lady swallows a pie, some cider, a roll, a squash, an entire turkey… we’ve read this countless times and never tire of it. Ages 3-7.
Moose on the Loose, by Kathy-Jo Wargin
Bold illustrations and simple rhymes make this book a winner. “What would you do with a moose on the loose? Would you chase him or race him or stand up to face him?” Ages 3-5.
There’s a Bear on My Chair, by Ross Collins
This is a funny book about a mouse who’s very frustrated by a polar bear who won’t get off his chair. Interestingly, all the rhymes in the book rhyme with bear – so this book won’t teach a lot of variety when it comes to rhyming. But it’s extremely creative and funny. Ages 3-6.
One Duck Stuck, by Phyllis Root
My middle boys couldn’t get enough of this rhythmic rhyming book when they were two and four years old. “Down by the marsh, by the sleepy, slimy marsh, one duck gets stuck in the muck. Who can help? As each group of animals comes by to help (from two fish all the way up to ten dragonflies), there’s “no luck. The duck stays stuck in the muck.” But when all the animals work together… “Spluck!” Ages 2-5.
The Frogs and Toads All Sang, by Arnold Lobel
This is a lovely set of short rhyming stories that were discovered by Arnold Lobel’s daughter after his death. At first glance, I thought it would bore my Three, but she loved the silly little rhymes. Ages 3-6.
Giraffes Can’t Dance, by Giles Andreae
Every year the animals come together for the spectacular Jungle Dance. But poor Gerald the Giraffe… his legs are too skinny and his neck too long. All the animals let him know that he can’t dance. Finally, when Gerald starts dancing to his own music, the animals are entranced. We just enjoyed the story, but you could get deeper with the story’s lesson… “sometimes when you’re different, you just need a different song.” Ages 3-6.
Who Stole the Cookies? by Judith Moffatt
Many versions of this story exist, but this early reader is my kids’ favorite. They like the collage illustrations and simple rhymes. This is one from our personal library, and I’ve read it more times than I can count! Ages 2-5.
Goodnight, Good night, Construction Site, by Sherri Duskey Rinker
Have you ever driven by a construction site in the evening when all the big machines are quiet and still? This book brings those big machines to life in a tender way. Ages 3-5.
I Like Bugs, by Margaret Wise Brown
We own this simple rhyming book, and it’s been a favorite at our house for quite a few years. Quick to read, with fun illustrations. Recommended! Ages 2-5.
Hairy Maclary’s Bone, by Lynley Dodd
It seems that Lynley Dodd’s books are a well-kept secret here in the U.S. In this book, Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy gets a bone; five hungry dogs (Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Schnitzel Von Krumm with the very low tum…) try to follow him home, but he loses them one by one. Dodd’s books have great illustrations, funny storylines, and clever rhymes featuring new words which will broaden your child’s vocabulary (maybe yours too!). They are quick reads and appealing to toddlers up through early grade school. Have I convinced you yet? Check your library. ? Ages 3-7.
Over in the Meadow, by Lilian Obligado
If you don’t know this familiar rhyme, you should absolutely check it out! There are many books that present this fun song, but the illustrations in this one are our favorites. Not sure how the song goes? Google it on Youtube. The book isn’t any fun if you don’t sing it! Ages 2-5.
Jesse Bear, Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? by Nancy White Carlstrom
This is a gentle, comforting book about a little bear who takes us through a fun day of playing. I thought it would be boring, but I was pleasantly surprised. Sweet, but definitely for younger listeners. Ages 2-4.
Row Row Row your Boat, by Iza Trapani
Here’s another favorite from Iza Trapani. The pictures steal the show as a family of bears gets caught in a rainstorm. A favorite! Ages 3-5.
The Sneetches, by Dr. Seuss
Some of the longer Dr. Seuss books test my patience, but I never get tired of this one! The Sneetches are yellow creatures that are divided into two groups: those with stars on the bellies and those without. Those with stars believe they are far superior to the plain-bellied Sneetches. But when a sly visitor comes to town and tricks them into spending loads of money to prove they’re the best, all the Sneetches learn a valuable lesson. Ages 4-7.
Hickory Dickory Dock, by Keith Baker
We’re big fans of nursery rhymes at our house, so we really love this book which expands on the traditional rhyme. As the clock strikes a new number, another animal wanders by the clock. “Hickory, dickory, dock. Someone nibbled the clock. The clock struck nine — a porcupine! Hickory, dickory, dock.” Ages 2-5.
Cars! Cars! Cars! by Grace Maccarone
This is a great rhyming book with charming pictures. It’s a quick read and a book your preschooler will love so much he’ll soon be reciting it to you. It also works well for teaching opposites. Ages 2-5.
I’m a Little Teapot, by Iza Trapani
(Yes, another Trapani favorite!) The teapot shares its dreams with us by reciting adventures of all kinds– fighting a bull in Mexico, meeting an alien in space, singing in an opera, going on a fox hunt… okay, so it’s a bit of a stretch. But we love to sing it! Ages 3-5.
The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss wrote this book nearly sixty years ago, but its popularity has only increased over the years. There’s just something irresistible about the crazy cat who livens up the day of two children on a “cold, cold, wet day.” Ages 2-6.
Madeline, by Ludwig Bemelmans
This is a classic book about 12 little girls who live in a boarding school in Paris under the care of their teacher, Miss Clavel. Children are fascinated by the ending, in which Madeline needs to go to the hospital to have her appendi removed. It’s easy to see why this book has delighted children for generations. Ages 3-7.
Who Sank the Boat? by Pamela Allen
We own and love this book about a group of silly animals who try to squeeze into a small boat. The illustrations are the best part – but the simple story and funny ending are also wonderful. Ages 2-6.
My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes, by Eve Sutton
This is a favorite book from my childhood, so I was thrilled to discover it at the library to share with my preschooler! The cat from France likes to sing and dance, the cat from Norway get stuck in the doorway … and so it goes around the world, always ending with “but my cat likes to hide in boxes!” A favorite. Ages 2-5.
Here We Go ‘Round the Mulberry Bush, by Iza Trapani
This is my last recommendation for Trapani’s books, I promise! She has quite a few more, but their rhymes are forced and not as engaging as the ones I’ve mentioned in this post. I love this book because it tells the story of animals invading a garden – with the gardener doing everything she can to keep thm out, only to be thwarted by another animal! This rings true for our house, as my husband now has three types of fence on our garden (to keep out the rabbits, raccoons, and deer). Ages 3-6.
Rhyming Dust Bunnies, by Jan Thomas
This is a quick, funny book about some dust bunnies who rhyme wherever they go – and are completely confused by Bob’s non-rhyming warning to beware of the vacuum cleaner! Ages 3-6.
The Pout-Pout Fish, by Deborah Diesen
This has to be one of my favorites on the list because the book is just so fun to read. All the other ocean creatures want to know why the Pout Pout fish is so glum. But he just can’t help it! “I”m a pout pout fish with a pout pout face, and I spread my dreary wearies all over the place. Glub… glub… glub.” This continues until the silver fish shows up and turns his frown upside down. It turns out that the Pout-Pout fish is actually a Kiss-Kiss fish! Ages 3-7.
The Seven Silly Eaters, by Mary Ann Hoberman
Mary Ann Hoberman is the author of many rhyming children’s books including the You read to Me, I’ll Read to You series. In this book Mrs. Peters has seven children — each of whom will eat (or drink) only one particular food. Poor Mrs. Peters is worn to the bone cooking homemade oatmeal, baking homemade bread, squeezing lemons for lemonade and peeling apples for applesauce. At the end of the book the family discovers a recipe that everyone will eat. Ages 3-7.
Mrs. Spider’s Tea Party, by David Kirk
This and the other Miss Spider books are bright, fun stories suited for older children because of their higher vocabulary and clever word play. In this first book, Mrs. Spider is devastated when none of the insects she’s invited will come to her beautiful tea party. When a drenched moth is forced to stop by, he learns that Mrs. Spider is a herbivore, and she soon becomes a friend of all the bugs. Ages 3-7.
The Hungry Thing, by Jane Slepian and Ann Seidler
This book and its sequel (The Hungry Thing Returns) are the perfect books to teach rhyming to older children. A hungry monster visits a town (a school in the second book), but when making requests he speaks in rhyme. What does he mean by “flamburgers?” What is “crackeroni and sneeze?” These books are real treasures but can be hard to find — check your library. Ages 3-7.
And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, by Dr. Seuss
This, the first book Dr. Seuss published, is about an imaginative boy named Marco. With great exaggeration, Marco describes what he sees and hears along Mulberry Street. On each page he turns the ordinary man and wagon into something even more outlandish. Ages 4-7.
Horton Hears a Who!by Dr. Seuss
Horton the elephant hears a small sound from a speck of dust, which turns out to be a tiny community called Whoville. Horton takes it on himself to protect the Whos because “a person’s a person, no matter how small.” You might appreciate checking this book out from the library from time to time instead of owning it; it is very long. An audio version with Dustin Hoffman as narrator is wonderful to listen to in the car. Ages 4-7.
Kermit the Hermit, by Bill Peet
Kermit is a hermit crab who stores all the junk he finds in his cave. One day he is rescued from a dog by a boy in ragged clothes. Kermit wants to thank the boy, so when he finds a treasure of gold, he slowly accumulates it until he must move his hoard out of his cave. A pelican helps him deliver it down the chimney of the boy’s ramshackle home. The boy’s family becomes rich, and Kermit learns to think of others first. Ages 4-8.
“Stand Back,” Said the Elephant, “I’m Going to Sneeze!”, by Patricia Thomas
The elephant warns the other animals about a tremendous sneeze on its way. The sneeze would blow the stripes off the zebra, the monkeys out of the trees, and the hippopotamus onto his bottamus. As all the animals plead with the elephant not to sneeze, he laughs instead. Young children will laugh along with him. Ages 3-7.
“I Can’t” Said the Ant, by Polly Cameron
This is the classic (1961) story of a broken tea pot and all the kitchen items who try to help. “Teapot fell,” said the dinner bell. “Is she dead?” asks the bread. “Broke her spout,” said the trout. “Push her up,” said the cup. “I can’t,” said the ant. “Please try,” said the pie.” Ages 3-7.
The Caboose Who Got Loose, by Bill Peet
Katy Caboose is unhappy with her dirty, jostling life at the end of the train but finds happiness at the end of this action-filled story when her rusty bolts break apart from the train. Anyone who thinks rhyming books must be simple has never read Bill Peet. “The next thing she knew she was jerked and then jolted, then hitched to the train with her coupler bolted…” Ages 4-8.

I recently published the picture book, Orange S’more-ange, for teaching rhyming.
I love this rhyming game! I am doing homeschool preschool and this is super helpful thank you!
There’s a great two book series from a few years ago, Topsy-Turvy Tracy, and it has great rhyming!
What a wonderful list! We’re big fans of “The Duchess Bakes a Cake”!
I’m glad you like it, Margaret!
I am happy to find this list of books with descriptions and how young kids reacted to them! I was looking for books that would be interactive when I do preschool story time at the library. Thanks so much!
You’re welcome, Julie!
You have compiled a wonderful list. I love writing children’s stories in rhyme but find it difficult to find the publishers who accept them. Is there a list of children’s book publishers who appreciate rhyming?
Actually it seems to me that many of the children’s books I get from the library are rhyming books. But I’ve never looked into it so I don’t have recommendations – sorry!
What a great list! Thank you so much for compiling it.
Thank you for such a wonderful book! 🙂
