Bumblebee Grumblebee

Gecko Pr. Feb. 2022. 18p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781776574025.
PreS-K–Finely illustrated with pencil drawings and light watercolors, pairs of wildly original rhymes with animal names, like “buffalo, fluffalo,” are hilariously presented in wide-open spreads spotlighting an original animal character followed by its newly named counterpart. Readers will laugh aloud at the changes these animals undergo by adding simple words.
VERDICT This board book may have a life in the classroom, where children can make up their own names and rhymes. A winner.
