Summary: “Now, how did it happen that I started rappin’? Well, here’s my story in all its glory!” The first time Rappy the Raptor tried to fly, he fell on his head; when he came to, he was talking in rhyme non-stop. His parents took him to the hospital, where he underwent a battery of tests. The final verdict? The fall had nothing to do with it; Rappy was born to rap. So Rappy leaves the doctors and nurses bopping and snapping their fingers, and goes on to his happy life of rhyme. Recommended for ages 3-7.
Pros: Snappy rhyming text and lively cartoonish illustrations of dancing dinosaurs.
Cons: If non-stop rhyming results in the number of tests that Rappy undergoes, it’s no wonder our healthcare system is troubled.
