DeMoulin, Donald F.
Reading Improvement, v38 n3 p116-18 Fall 2001
Suggests that the use of a personalized and rhyming approach makes reading more enjoyable and inviting to children because: (1) the sounds are appealing to the ear; and (2) the combination of personalization and rhyming keeps a child focused and maximizes repetitive readings. Concludes that personalization and rhyming are natural associations that "catch the eye" of elementary school children. (SG)
