About Sheri Wall
Hi there! I'm Sheri Wall. When my boys were young, we would read aloud so, so much! It was a great way for me to snuggle with them and feel no guilt about making the laundry wait. I especially loved rhyming books, and my boys did too! We would delight in the sing-songy rhythms and take turns finishing the verses.
My boys are now grown, and my husband encouraged me to channel my creative energy into writing children's books. I decided to focus on rhyming books and established my brand, A Matter of Rhyme, to celebrate reading aloud as a fun, essential learning tool. I know that rhyming and repetition are important for kids' brain development, and I've seen that they work.
I like to cook, eat, decorate, bargain hunt, and stay active when I'm not writing. I hope you enjoy my books, all written with love.
