Author(s): AliKat Rhyme Time (Illustrator)
We, Alice (Art) and Kathy (Rhymes), AliKat, are both teachers with lots of extras accumulated along the way. Fortunately, in 2017 we were brought together while teaching in the beautiful city of Brisbane, Australia .Tuesday's were poetry days when Kathy would often be scrambling around researching rhymes age appropriate (3-6 years) for the children. Regularly resorting to scribbling down her own ideas before class began. Alice would then continue with an art lesson using the children's visual interpretations of images the words had provided.It is in witnessing the delight and progress of the children using this fun, non-fail form of expression and learning and the lack of 21st century resources ("Mary had a Little Lamb" was written in the 1800's) that has driven us to create AliKat Rhyme Time.
