Chaconas, D. Icing the cake : writing stories in rhythm and rhyme, 2006, via WWW, July 9, 2012 (A child's book world without rhyme would be like a world without music. Good rhyme is fun to read out loud. Good rhyme is enjoyable to listen to. But a good rhyming story can be difficult to write. And that's what this article is about--the layers that go into writing good rhyming stories--and they are: Story, Rhythm, Rhyme. Instead of calling them rhyming stories, more accurately we might call them stories in rhythm and rhyme.)

Backes, L. Writing in rhyme, 2009, via WWW July 9, 2012 (Dr. Seuss did it, and in the process changed the face of the publishing industry and became a beloved household name to children for several generations. Stories in verse, like their prose counterparts, also must have a distinct voice. The rhythm of the verse, which combines elements like word choice and length of the lines, goes a long way toward creating a tone for each story.)
