Today's teaching review looks at Marsha Diane Arnold's rhyming picture book Roar of A Snore, which could also be called Roar of a Story (bad joke), In it we look at the super smart ways that Marsha works with rhyme and repetition among other things. I also talk a little about Pierre Pratt's art and what makes it effective.
