This week's Poetry Friday Round-Up is being hosted by Anastasia Suen at Picture Book of the Day.

Here are some of the Picture Books in rhyme that are popular with my teachers, parents and students:

"Millions of Snowflakes" written by Mary McKenna Siddals, illustrated by Elizabeth Sayles -- a celebration of winter.

"Is Your Mama a Llama?" written by Deborah Guarino, illustrated by Steven Kellogg -- a favorite read-aloud.

"Hilda Must Be Dancing" written by Karma Wilson, illustrated by Suzanne Watts -- 2008-2009 CYRM nominee.

"Bats at the Beach" written and illustrated by Brain Lies -- another 2008-2009 CYRM nominee last year.

Friday's Famous First: Can you identify the title and author or this first line?

"Give me a push, Beast," Emily called to her friend Richard Best.
