Elizabeth Purcell is the mother of six children, 17 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren, who give her endless story ideas.
And because she thinks helping children to read early is so important, most of her books are for early readers. They are short, to the point, and mostly in rhyme.
And since learning to read is one of the toughest and most important tasks a young child faces,rhymes are very important for their development. If they are not able to be successful with rhyming, learning to read will be more be difficult.
One key reason rhyme is important is that it is fun. Children are willing to spend a lot of time rhyming and learning more about rhyme. This makes rhyme a great teaching tool and a great motivator for learning.
