Rhymes & Reasons

“Children love rhymes, and because they have not yet reached the age where they think in constructs such as ideologies, formal dogma, or other abstract notions, the narrative context in which the rhymes take place is irrelevant. The significance lies in what a classic rhyme offers to a child. 

“Children’s classics are priceless for several reasons: they introduce children to a rich vocabulary of wonderful words which the authors deploy with razor-like precision; the sentences contain captivating constructions and striking turns of phrase; and they teach children moral lessons of temperance, humility and kindness.”
