The bunnies wake up to hundreds and hundreds of colorful balloons floating through their town one day: red ones, blue ones, silver and black. They float into buildings, buses, stores, and the streets. Balloons, balloons they are all around, blanketing the town.
“I love all the balloons. I love all the bunny rabbits and the mommy bunny rabbits and the babies.”
“What is your favorite color balloon?”
“Do you think the book was silly?”
“Because I love it. I love the doggy.”
“Balloons, Balloons, Balloons” is a good book for working on colors and introducing rhyming words. The repetition is easy to follow and a nice lead-in for other poetry books.
