A note from Odd Sock...
We've just hit publish on the eBook version of our TENTH rhyming picture book, and I promised M that I would finally start writing a few blogposts again. As this April is also the third annual Rhyming Picture Book Month event, I thought I'd join in with the pledge and help M read 2 rhyming picture books each day.
If anyone wants to join in the fun, then #RhyPiBoMo also has daily blogposts about rhyming picture books. You can find them here on Angie Karcher's blog.
As I didn't want to re-read our old favourites, and our UK library sadly seems to lack many rhyming picture books, I've just been exploring YouTube.
I discovered there are lots of old classics (including many Dr.Seuss books we've never seen before) as "read aloud" versions. They allow you to also read each page for yourself if you just turn the volume off and press pause as each page is revealed. Not as "hands on" as a trip to the library, but a handy modern day option when looking for 2 new rhyming picture books to read each day!
🌟 In honour of this year's Day 1 RhyPiBoMo blogpost, I thought we should check out Dr.Seuss' VERY FIRST rhyming picture book, "To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street".🌟
My verdict: Good rhyming fun, and great Dr. Seuss illustrations.
You can view it on YouTube here...
🌟"Marvin K.Mooney Will You Please Go Now!" is a second Dr. Seuss book we'd not read before. This one is a fairly short and simple picture book, but it also has some great zany Dr. Seuss illustrations.🌟
Here's the YouTube link in case anyone else wants to read or listen to this one.
Bye for now
