Rhymes in the Style of Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss began the series of beginner books back in 1957. Beginner books are books that children who are learning to read can pick up and read by themselves. Christopher Cerf's A Skunk in My Bunk is written in the style of Seuss rhymes to continue the love of beginner books. He includes a variety of humorous scenes and rhyming words throughout the story that will engage young children in reading to the end. Nicola Slater contributes her talent as an illustrator with hilarious illustrations that accompany the rhyming text.
Rhyming words contribute fun and learning to a child's language skills. Rhyming words also contribute to development of reading skills by the use of phonics and pattern recognition in words. Parents will want to add Cerf's A Skunk in My Bunk to their child's reading collection.
