Meet the rhyming dust bunnies: Ed, Ned, Ted, and Bob. As they like to say "We rhyme all the time!" On this particular day Ed starts them off with wondering "Hey! What rhymes with car?" Everyone puts in a vote except for Bob. Bob's sort of staring in the distance and saying things like "Look!" and "Look Out!" The other bunnies are confused by Bob's seeming inability to rhyme. Even when he says "Look out! Here comes a big scary monster with a broom!" they're not quite catching on. Finally he screams out "Run for it!Read more ›
I like that the writer sticks to her game plan and doesn't try to do too much with this book. Most of the vocabulary is quite easy, the most difficult words being rhyme (often repeated) and vacuum cleaner.
Observant readers will note that the rhyming dust bunnies speak in red font while Bob speaks in green.
Rhyme is an important concept and word attack skill for developing readers. With rhyme one can learn word families and apply concepts and sound patterns to new words.
An adult reading this book to his or her child can introduce and reinforce the concept of rhyme with this book in an enjoyable unpressured manner. The young reader can be invited to participate by contributing words that rhyme with the words posed by the dust bunnies.
Rhyming Dust Bunnies is a nice, little book with teaching possibilities and a great big fun factor. Seek it out.
The book has a cute premise and does give a basic introduction to rhyming words. It is a very quick and short read, which can be a plus as a parent at times. And, young children will probably find it entertaining.
This book was given to my 5-year-old daughter for her birthday. She enjoys silly things, and so she enjoys the book, and it is one of her favorites. My 7-year-old daughter really enjoys it also.
For my tastes, the illustrations were exceedingly bright, done pretty much all in primary colors. I find it tiring to look at the pages, which makes me less interested in reading it. And in my book, the parent's willingness to read it weighs significantly in the rating. I also found the ending a bit abrupt. Overall, I'd give this book a 4-star rating.
