About the Book

Overview

Here are twenty-nine rhyming riddle poems about everyday objects that children love: roller coasters, trampolines, kites, yo-yos, licorice, and more. With plenty of clues in each rhythmic verse and in the colorful illustrations, children of all ages will enjoy guessing these riddles and challenging one another to the answers.  “Children will enjoy the simple rhythmic poetry as much as the word puzzles in these clever riddles in verse.” —Booklist
