Picture Book Party

It's time for a picture book party!  I'm joining DeAnne from First Grade and Fabulous to discuss this week's topic, favorite rhyming books.  I have so many favorite rhyming books and authors; so this is going to be great fun!

I love, love, love Brian Lies and his bat books. If you haven't read Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Ballgame, or Bats at the Library, be sure to check them out.

Bill Martin and Eric Carle teamed up for a fabulous series of rhyming bear books: Brown Bear, Polar Bear, Panda Bear, and Baby Bear.  

Zin! Zin! Zin! a Violin is great for rhyming, counting, or introducing students to musical instruments.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books is a great choice for the first day of school.  My students are big fans of the old lady series.

Julia Donaldson is also a favorite rhymer of mine. She's clever and thoughtful.  Have you read Room on the Broom?

The vibrant illustrations are sure to catch your eye in Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum.  You'll wonder which critter will be the next to get stuck in the glob of melted gum on the road.  Ew!

Now hop on over to First Grade and Fabulous and share your own favorite rhyming books!
