Having just had the wonderful opportunity to see Julia Donaldson live presenting her show “the Gruffalo,” again emphasised the importance of rhyming.
Julia has a wonderful way of writing the most delightful books which all children love. They are easy and fun to read and the wonderful use of rhyme makes you want to break out into song! Which is exactly what Julia did!
Did you know that her first book “a Squash and a Squeeze” originated from a song and then became a book? I still have that song in my head.
Why is rhyming so important you say? Well, think about it, if you can make a rhyme about something doesn’t it make it easier to remember?
