This is a great book to teach the children about rhyming words. On each page, the words are about two lines, and each ends with rhyming words. This could be great to use when introducing poems, seeing that some are written that way.
My 6-year-old thought this book was so funny, and I thought it was a great Level 1 book. It has larger print and cute illustrations. I recommend this for Kindergarten students and beginning readers.
Major hit for my beginning reader...who read it multiple times and then my pre-reader also wanted to "read" it (her style). great ending! an easy reader with a sense of humor, whooee.
This is an adorable book for preschoolers or even younger to start them on rhyming words. My niece loves it.
