Celebrating Picture Books in Rhyme
Hey kids! Do you like picture books that rhyme like the Dr. Seuss books your parents read and grew up with? Every year the folks at Rhyming Picture Book Month (founded by Angie Karcher) run a contest to pick the best rhyming picture books of the year, and it’s voted on by writers just like you!
