THE BOOK THAT ALMOST RHYMED follows one boy’s attempt to tell a story in rhyme despite repeated interruptions from his younger sister, who twists the story in new (and absurd!) directions. Although brother is annoyed at first, he learns to appreciate the responsibility of being a role model to a younger sibling who, in turn, learns a new skill of her own. This funny, rhyming story celebrates siblings, storytelling, and collaboration, showing how another person’s input can make a project (rhyme!) even better.
