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.

Over the past twelve months I have read at least 12 times more children books than the average kid.......but out of all the books if read this one stands out as the funniest most "want to read over and over again"book I have seen this year, Jan Thomas is the children's book author of 2010!

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!

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.

This is a fantastic book. Very funny, great characters, and an excellent story line. My kids love this book. I think I have it completely memorized, I've read it so many times. If you like Mo Willems, you will love Jan Thomas' books!

This is a very funny book. I read this book with a four year old and the third time we read the story he could read it to me. It is a very simple story that should be read to early readers. I think it will help them see the rhyming pattern some books display.

Super fun for kids. Very imaginative and would induce imaginative play in its audience.

This is a super funny book, with four rhyming dust bunnies (Ed, Ned, and Ted) and one who... doesn't. Poor Bob. Every time he tries to warn them, they just correct his rhyming technique!Well, so the joke is a little predictable. Children laugh anyway. They also laugh when you ask them "Orange you glad I didn't say banana again", so there you go :)It's short, it's simple, and - bonus! - it helps little-littles practice rhymes.

A very short, hilarious rhyming book where dust bunnies are trying to rhyme words but one is just not getting it...because he's trying to warn the other bunnies that they are about to be swept away! A great book for beginner readers and those working on phonics and word families.

Tee hee. Ok, the simple cartoonish characters are simple and silly but the kids will love 'em. There's rhyming, suspense, humor. Fun for reading aloud to a group or a simple readers theater.
