Oi Duck-billed Platypus
by Kes Gray and Jim Field
Age group: 3-5

Rhyming is great way to teach children a language. Children learn the sounds within words through hearing rhymes. This is called phonological (sound) awareness. This is a brilliantly funny and silly rhyme book where a frog is trying to rhyme all those animals that are impossible to rhyme with, like duck billed platypus or hippopotamus. Laugh along as you read and flip through this colourful book.
