Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Three dust bunnies, Ed, Ned, and Ted, rhyme all the time. They say that far, jar, and tar rhyme with car, but a fourth dust bunny, Bob, just does not seem to get it; he says, “Look!” When they try and teach him that rug, hug, and mug rhyme with bug, he says, “Look out!” Of course, the smug majority is wrong. Bob’s warnings come true and when a broom and then a vacuum cleaner prove him right, the rhyming trio ask Bob what rhymes with “How do we get out?” With thick black lines and neon colors, the dust creatures on the bright colored pages look like the huge monsters that they think they are––until the big, powerful human tools take over. Preschoolers will recognize how it feels to be just a mite in a grown-up world, and they will enjoy the playful rhymes and simple wordplay as much as the bold scenarios of the tiniest creatures in danger from giants, and one hero who sees it coming.

All right. That's it. I can't take it anymore. Could we please please PLEASE just get it over with and declare Jan Thomas some kind of national treasure / picture book genius? No, seriously people. I am not even kidding about this. I'm tired of the excuses. She killed with her debut "What Will Fat Cat Sit On?", slayed with "A Birthday for Cow!", and caused general carnage and delight with "The Doghouse". I thought myself the expert of all things Thomas (Thomasian?) and then a fellow children's librarian had the audacity to discover "Rhyming Dust Bunnies" before I could. The shame runs deep. Fortunately I was able to swipe her copy (hoo hoo!) and take a look at it myself. Aw man. For any parent that's tired of the same old same old in their rhyming picture books, "Rhyming Dust Bunnies" is the readaloud wonder and visual stimulant that's gonna have the kids rolling in the aisles, right alongside their parents. Once again, Thomas hits it outta the park.

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!

I gave this book to my nephews (3 & 4) and it was a huge hit. When we finished they both immediately responded, "read it again!" We read it six or seven times in the first sitting. It is a "loud" book so don't read before bedtime. They asked me to read it to them every day during my visit and often recited lines from the book out of the blue. Clever book and fun for all!

Other customers have made excellent comments, so I will just add my own experience. I teach Kindergarten. "Rhyming Dust Bunnies" was the first Jan Thomas book I ever purchased and my class LOVED it. They would have me read it repeatedly everyday if I we didn't have so many other things to do. Over the last couple years I have purchased several other Jan Thomas books and they are all well loved. I just purchased "What Will Fat Cat Sit On?" and can't wait to receive it and read it to this year's class! I'm sure it won't be the last of this author's books that I buy! (May I comment that if there is someway I can underline the names of books in these comments, I can't find it. Since many comments are about books purchased here, it would be great to be able to have an underline feature.)

Besides being a fantastic and unique story, it is also a great beginner reader book. There are lots of other reviews on this book telling you all about it, It is funny, it is fun to read, and the 3 to 5 year old crowd will want to read this book every day or in my cause many times a day, every day.
I am teaching a just turned 5 year old how to read and been working on rhyming with her and CVC words and this book has all of that. She can read it all by herself at this point and we are for sure getting the next one in the series and more by Jan Thomas, this is my first Jan Thomas book. I am a daycare provider and have taught several children how to read and this author is for sure going to be on my book shelves. Thank you Jan Thomas!!!

We checked out this book from the library and my 3 1/2 year old loved it so much I'm ordering him a copy of his own...it's the first book we've ever checked out that he wanted to keep! He quickly had the book memorized and can "read" it on his own. He thinks the book is hysterical! He's begun understanding rhyming, and knows that Bob's comments don't rhyme, which sends my son into fits of laughter. It's short, silly, easy for early readers to read and has had great educational value - perfect for a preschooler to maybe first grader.

I absolutely love Rhyming Dust Bunnies. It is a library and story time favorite. It is a very engaging picture book about dust bunnies who love to rhyme but get into trouble because they are so in love with rhyming that they ignore Bob's warnings until it is too late. Fun introduction to rhyming words.

Another wonderful book by Jan Thomas. This one is a departure from the previous cast of charming animals. Instead it is about four charming dust bunnies. Whoever heard about a book about dust bunnies. The drawings of these four dust bunnies are large and in vivid color. They are not only winning in their looks but they rhyme with enthusiasm - except for the fourth dust bunny who appears to be a little slow in the brain and can't rhyme as his friends can. But of course he turns out to be focused in another direction and isn't slow at all. It's a funny and beautifully drawn book which will appeal to children and adults alike.
