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.
