Shel Silverstein is a genius at writing language kids will love, and the illustrations are giggle-inducing too. This whole book deliberately messes up words by exchanging the first letters (as in Runny Babbit instead of Bunny Rabbit.) So reading it aloud makes everyone sound silly!

I loved the book, but then I always enjoy books by Shel Silverstein. I have waited months and months to get a copy of this one from PaperBack Swap so I was thrilled when someone had a copy for me. I teach first grade and my students love it when I share it with them.

This CD was too confusing for my kids to listen to. They kept asking what he was saying and even I had a hard time figuring it out sometime.

Series of 1 and 2 page poems, all about Runny Babbit, he may have gotten the idea from TV's Hee Haw in the barbershop back in the 1970s (the intro says Shel started this book at least 20 years before publication, 1999). You could argue that it's simply telling the same joke over and over, but then, that's what the 10 and under crowd like.
