I – okay, my son – received a copy of this book for Christmas and I just love it!! SO many good things about it!
- Rhyming! As we know, being able to identify and produce rhyming works is an important pre-literacy skill for young children. This book is all about the rhymes!
- Cute, simple illustrations. BONUS – some of the pages are textured. I particularly like the “mossy” Rhino (Rhymo?) and the “quilted” one.
- Basic concepts! There are some excellent vocabulary items in this book, including some basic concept words (think things like furry, bumpy, old, strong, chilly, and so on). Lovely descriptive words!
Another great resource for basic concepts is Hippopposites also by Janik Coat.
Only recently added to my son’s stash of awesome books, it is rapidly becoming a favourite. No surprises, it is all about opposites and thus the points above on cute illustrations and vocabulary apply here also!
I highly recommend both these books! Happy Reading!
