Rude Rutherford Robin by Sally Lee Baker is a fun read which emphasizes the letter ‘r’. Riley Rat finds Rutherford Robin rude and tells that to Rachel Rattlesnake. Rutherford Robin calls Riley Rat a rodent and Rachel Rattlesnake a reptile, and they both are angry. Reggie Rhinoceros wants to know what the ruckus is all about. Reggie Rhinoceros remembers that Rutherford Robin thought he was a relative of the horse. They want to restrain Rutherford Robin from making any more harsh remarks. Will the animal friends be able to come up with something to restrain Rutherford Robin? Will Rutherford Robin change?

The concept of emphasizing the letter ‘r’ of the alphabet and using a bold font is interesting and makes learning ‘r’ and its pronunciation easy. The illustrations and story make it an entertaining read. Children will also enjoy finding the hidden letter ‘r’ in each page. It is a fun and interactive story and is perfect for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Parents will find the book helpful when it comes to teaching their children the letter ‘r’. The illustrations breathe life into the story and give it a good pace and movement. I found the book engaging and interactive and I hope the author soon comes up with stories like this for every letter of the alphabet as it not only teaches children about the many uses of ‘r,’ but also helps to enhance their vocabulary by teaching them new words. The animal friends in the story will make children think and also understand the concept and message the author is trying to convey.
