Although Rhino Romp is attempting to be amusing and whimsical it seems more serious and in depth. A lot of very specific and proper animal/plant terms which is in itself advanced vocabulary makes it difficult to read smoothly despite the cheerful and mischievous baby rhino protagonist. It seems like almost a splice between a child's book and a science text.
