About the made up words.
Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2018
I read a bunch of reviews saying that the made up words were a bad idea for children learning to read. I have to disagree.
1. The made up words are actually the names of the different creatures.
2. Hearing rhyming words is great for young readers. That's why the Dr. Seus books are so highly recommended. And many studies have proved that the concept of rhyming has nothing to do with whether the word is made up or not.
3. What I really like is that the book can even be a little challenge at first, for some readers, because they have to actually read the unfamiliar word while relating it to the familiar word to figure out how the new word should be pronounced.
