Rufus And Friends Rhyme Time
This is a set of 14poems written as tongue twisters. They are like nursery rhymes. They are all connected like a play with different acts would be. The illustrations are excellent with easy to read print.
Silly poems and great illustrations combine for some fun reading and an introduction to poetry.
I picked the book for my daughter and we read this several times. She laughed and enjoyed the different poems. She liked the illustrations and how they worked with the poetry. She wanted to go write a poem herself after reading this.
I enjoyed the pictures. Some of the poems were silly but I am an adult so I think that made a difference in how they are viewed. I enjoyed watching her laugh and re-read them.
This is a book that makes for interactive reading.
Tongue twisters are a natural for getting kids to read aloud. The rhyming also helps with their sight vocabulary. This is a great way to show kids that poetry can be fun and encourage them to try their hand at it.
