#blogbookaday: Rhyme Crime

7 Jul

Rhyme Crime.jpgSummary:  “From the creator of Splat! comes more playful, irreverent, kid-empowering fun–with a rhyming twist.

In this buoyant rhyming romp, words have gone mysteriously missing: Who stole Marlow’s happy smile, and replaced it with a crocodile? Who swiped Dingle’s sneeze–aaaaachooo!–and left a stinky cheese? The thief took Tumble’s orange, and switched it with a . . . with a . . . Hey, does anything rhyme with orange? No? Aha! Could this be the rhyming robber’s undoing? Guided by bright, clever artwork, kids are empowered to put the final clues together for themselves to solve this silly rhyme crime, then guess at the name-nabber’s next sneaky move. Splendid, satisfying, inspiring.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A thief is committing crimes, stealing things and replacing them with rhymes! Will they be able to catch him in the act and what happens when they do?

Personal Reaction: I can see this book being a HUGE hit in a storytime for a little older crowd – preschoolers or even elementary school age children. Each page turns allows the kids to guess what’s coming next and I could see this book definitely being a lot of fun to read aloud! With cartoon-like illustrations and bright, bold colors this book is a joy to read, and just wait until you get to the orange!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
