Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

"We rhyme all the time!" declares one of four googly-eyed dust bunnies, ebullient in their palette of bright solid colors and Smurf-like bodies. Three of the shaggy critters promptly strut their stuff, reeling off words that rhyme with "car." But the fourth shouts, "Look!" Is he just a dimwit, or could he know something the others don't? The silly, eager-to-please dust bunnies occupy most of the space on the square pages; the silliness, the scale and large dialogue balloons combine for a party-hearty mood. Although a little sketchier than Thomas's previous works, such as What Will Fat Cat Sit On?, this book is just as funny and snappy-looking. Ages 3-5. (Jan.)

Kirkus Reviews
This dynamic quartet of dust bunnies, Ed, Ned, Ted and Bob, have quite the flair for rhyming words-except for anxious Bob, who is wisely more concerned about their perilous surroundings. In response to each rhyme, Bob dramatically declares that their enemy draws near: " ‘rug' / ‘hug' / ‘mug' / ‘LOOK OUT!' " Unfortunately, each of Bob's pleas falls on deaf bunnies' ears. Ned obliviously responds, "Bob, no . . . ‘LOOK OUT! HERE COMES A BIG SCARY MONSTER WITH A BROOM!' does not rhyme with ANYTHING, really." When the inevitable occurs, with a dramatic "Thwptt," the threesome finally listens to the rational hero, providing a powerful punch line. Thomas's digital illustrations, stark against her solid, colorful backgrounds, successfully accentuate the witty text. The shaggy dust bunnies are boldly contrasted, as their colors-green, purple, red and blue-extend past the thick lines into the ever-so-slightly-less-red background. With their wide noses, long ears, four-fingered paws and buck teeth, these fuzzy characters are a riot. Put away your cleaning supplies for a little messy fun. (Picture book. 3-6)

    Escellent Read for K through 2nd Grade

    I first came across this book while at the Public Library. I am a kindergarten teacher and I was actually looking for Dr. Seuss books for the "Read Across America" celebration that is held on his birthday. "Rhyming Dust Bunnies" is a great follow up book to read to children who have begun to understand what "rhyming" means. One really good learning strategy for teaching is to have oddity tasks where the student is given a group of words that fit a certain category (like: words that rhyme) and then there is one word that doesn't belong. The child then picks the word that doesn't fit the category. This book uses this strategy as part of the plot line. Half way into the story the reader realizes that Bob, one of the dust bunnies, is not playing the rhyming game the way it should be played. The ultimate "joke"
    is when you find out why. The story line is simple enough that even my kindergarten students picked up on the message that Bob is trying to tell the other dust bunnies. This book is clever in teaching and reinforcing rhymes, while allowing the readers to have a fun time doing it. As a teacher, I try not to spend money out of my own pocket to buy things for the classroom (the reason I was at the library in the first place.)But this is a must have for any educator of children in the early elementary grades, or for parents of children who are 5 to 8 years old.

    eBook costs more?

    This is a wonderful book. My entire family literally loled when we first read it. Even given our current love for it there is NO way that I am paying more for what looks like the exact same book as the hard back only digital. After paying hundreds of dollars of dollars for an ereader you actually expect us to pay a premium for content that costs less to produce just to have it eletonically? The industry really needs to wake up!

    Such a fun read!

    Every time we read this book, we laugh out loud. My husband does a great version and we realized that after a few readings, my 3 year old started impersonating him. It was the first time my kid had done an impression and it's such fun. This is a really great and clever read.
