Renée’s Read-Aloud Rhymes and Early Readers

Since 2007, I have been freelancing with All About Learning Press, a family-owned company dedicated to producing wonderful spelling and reading curricula for homeschoolers. Although I started with AALP as their editor, I soon branched out into co-authoring the early readers and other books that accompany the programs. This has been an exciting journey for me, an experience that helped me rediscover my passion for poetry and opened my eyes to the world of children’s literature.

Children’s Poetry

The book Lizard Lou is a collection of 78 poems — 43 new rhymes penned by me and 35 by beloved children’s poets. These are wonderful for reading aloud to pre-readers, while more advanced readers will enjoy reading them on their own. This book has a special place in my heart.

Level 4 Readers

Co-authored with AALP founder Marie Rippel, each early reader contains a collection of vocabulary-controlled stories and poems. Although our readers correlate with Marie’s reading and spelling curricula, they are great reads just on their own, too! And if you have a struggling reader, the black-and-white illustrations, large type, subtle underlining, and sensible line breaks will help them make sense of the text.
