Rhyme Flies

Phaidon

ABOUT THE BOOK

  • Surprising rhymes and clever wordplay encourage participation and build pre-literacy and vocabulary skills
  • Pitch-perfect comedy for the preschool set
  • Stylish, bold artwork adds satisfaction and perfectly balances the absurdity of the text
  • Sophisticated board book with crossover appeal in the vain of Jean Jullien

This deceptively simple pattern offers up one surprising rhyme per spread revealed behind a dramatic gatefold flap. Readers will delight in wagering guesses – rhyming, of course – before casting their eyes on the satisfying visual conclusion of the riddle. The list is subtly arched as a chronological day, from fresh orange GOOSE in the morning to TWEET dreams at night. Anything is possible in this beautifully packaged book of toddler comedy, which builds pre-literacy, vocabulary, and auditory skills, and encourages natural extensions outside of the book.

Created for ages 1-4 years
