> The Beesley Buzz: A glittery rhyming treat of a book, you really will love it so take a look!

A glittery rhyming treat of a book, you really will love it so take a look!

Miss T is just beginning to take an Interest in rhyming words. She loves watching rhyme rocket on cbeebies and often tells us that 'eye' rhymes with 'pie' and 'moon' rhymes with 'spoon' after watching it. She likes to make up little songs and will happily make up 'nonsense' words that rhyme.

So on our recent trip to Waterstones, it was The Rhyming Rabbit that caught her eye. We saw that it was by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks and having previously read 'What the ladybird heard' by this brilliant duo, we guessed that we would most probably enjoy it. 
'With glitter on every page!'
As an added bonus, each page features a little glitter somewhere and Miss T enjoyed feeling the pages to help her find the glittery parts. The book cover itself is lovely - Covered in a glittery blue with pretty lettering spelling out the title.

As the title gives makes clear, this book is about a rabbit who likes to make up rhymes. Sadly none of his friends or animals he meets seem to share his poetic passion. Then one night when rhyming rabbit is lost for words, someone comes to his aid. 

This is a fun book that we've all enjoyed reading. I particularly love the page with the maths loathing centipede - it reminds me of me! 

As most of Julia Donaldson's books are written in rhyme (perhaps all of them as I can't think of any that aren't), it was a brilliant idea to feature a character who also loves to rhyme.

Miss T was so inspired by the rhyming words, that as I tucked her into bed, she came up with her own: 'Mummy, poo rhymes with you'. Hmmm. Thanks Miss T!
Miss T has enjoyed reviewing books for PanMacmillan in the past, so wanted me to take photos of her reading this book so we decided to do this little write up about it even though no-one has asked us to - it's just because we love kids books so much.  


  1. I love this. Max hasn't been one for rhyming. I'm sure he will soon when he realises he can rhym poo wih you..... oh the joys of boys

    1. it's funny how they suddenly get into it. Miss T had never previously noticed rhyming words and now all of a sudden she does. x

  2. I adore rhyming books and Julia Donaldson is my favourite. Unfortunately my kids are growing up way too fast and poor Julia is getting left behind...The Little Man occasionally lets me read my favourite Room On the Broom.

    1. all her books are amazing - everytime i think i have a favourite, i find another i really love as much. x
