Stories in Rhyme

Down by the Cool of the PoolTake advantage of every opportunity to play with rhyme and the sounds of words. Research shows that children who play with sounds of words in their preschool years are better prepared to read when they get to school. This is called phonological awareness. Share a good rhyming book with your child, such as Down by the Cool of the Pool by Tony Mitton.
