Did Rhyming Prose Fall Out of Favor?
Over the last few years I've found that whenever I write a story for children, I may start out writing non-rhyming prose but soon come around to making it rhyme. Unfortunately, the current publishing climate has turned up its nose at this genre. This is nothing new, however. The first glimpse I saw of it was with the book I Promise I'll Find You, then again when I illustrated the book, Lightning Bug Thunder, and most recently when I illustrated the book I Love You Too, I Love You Three.
