Rhyming books in Welsh and English / Llyfrau mydr ac odl yn Gymraeg a Saesneg

Llyfr Hwiangerddi y Dref Wen

I ddathlu Amser Rhigwm Mawr Cymru, mae Cyngor Llyfrau Cymru wedi dewis rhai o'u hoff lyfrau sy'n odli yn Gymraeg a Saesneg.

Dathliad Cymru-eang o ganeuon a rhigymau ydy Amser Rhigwm Mawr Cymru. Ei nod ydy hybu ac annog gweithgarwch hwyliog a difyr yn rhannu rhigymau ar gyfer plant 0-5 oed yng Nghymru, yn y Gymraeg a'r Saesneg.
