    4. I quite enjoyed this book, it managed to maintain a nice story line of finding friends with mutual interests whilst rhyming all the time. However the long winded rhyming was of no interest to my son and niether were the images. I tried several times to read the book to him or even just look at the pictures but he loudly proclaimed "DONE!" each time I tried. Alas for now it's not meant to be.

    7. The Rhyming Rabbit is a precious story of a rabbit who feels he does not belong, because he speaks in rhymes unlike his fellow rabbit family. He goes outside the burrow and meets some friends, including a sheep who speaks in rhyme just like he does. This is the perfect book for introducing rhyming words to kindergarteners. They can make a chart identifying the rhyming words and what their ending sounds are. The story is also good for teaching children that no matter how different you feel, there [...]

    8. My family love books by Julia Donaldson so there's no surprise that we love this story of a rabbit who loves to rhyme. The story is about a character who finds everything around him poetic but his passion for rhyming isn't understood by his fellow rabbits and the rhyming rabbit feels lonely until he meets someone who shares his passion. A great story about friendship.

    9. An excellent story about a rabbit with a talent for poems and rhymes. His rabbit friends just eating and running and sleeping, and rabbit is miserable until he meets a sheep who also enjoys poems and they rhyme together. A lovely book to introduce poetry and rhyming words. Slightly long for the nursery crowd, but worth persevering with.

    10. This is a charming book about a clever bunny who loves to rhyme. One night he can't sleep so he goes on a moonlit adventure, meeting other animals along the way. A lovely tale with cute sing along rhymes and beautiful illustrations.

    11. Funny and sweet story about a rhyming rabbit whose poems are underappreciated until he meets a rhyming sheep. Longer story with lots of new vocabulary, so better suited to school aged children and/or for sharing one on one.
