Description

Runny Babbit turns 10! A special commemorative anniversary sticker graces Shel Silverstein's hilarious book of spoonerisms (words or phrases with letters or syllables swapped: bunny rabbit becomes Runny Babbit) to celebrate this momentous event.

Welcome to the world of Runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertie Gunk, Rirty Dat, Dungry Hog, Snerry Jake, and many others who speak a topsy-turvy language all their own.

So if you say, ;Let's bead a rook That's billy as can se; You're talkin; Runny Babbit talk, Just like mim and he.

Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts

display_description In this "billy sook," which was a 20-year work-in-progress, readers are introduced to Runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertie Gunk, Goctor Doose, and Millie Woose, and are encouraged to plunge headlong into this phonemic flip-flop world of funny poems. "So if you say, 'Let's bead a rook/That's billy as can se,'/You're talkin' Runny Babbit talk,/Just like mim and he." Complete with signature comical bold line drawings that provide visual clues, the poems require concentration to translate the silly phrases: "Runny fad a hamily/Matter of fact, he had/A sother and two bristers,/A dummy and a mad." Children will love these clever poems and without prompting will probably create their own, unaware that they are focusing on a key reading skill: phonemic awareness.
