Welcome to the home of The Rhymers!
The Rhymers are 26 loveable capital alphabet characters that live on Rhyme Island and have many adventures together. They love to speak in rhyme and live together in their rhyming pairs, from Ace and Bass to Vroom and Zoom. Watch out for Over and Under who don’t quite rhyme and argue all the time.
These books are a great way to teach your children the alphabet and their phonics through engaging, colourful, rhyming stories that also have strong moral messages. The learning often happens without the children realising it as they follow the adventures of their favourite alphabet characters.
The Rising Rhymers are the same 26 alphabet characters, but as little letters. Their stories are slightly shorter in length and simpler in the language used to cater for a younger audience.
Many alphabet learning books focus only on the upper case letters so these stories are a great way for children to learn their little letters too, something that nurseries and schools teach prior to capital letter recognition.
Mubble Pup is Rhyme Island’s loveable dog who is always getting muddled up. He loves to join every Rhymers’ adventure and has his own stories too.Books
The message at the heart of this book is celebrating difference and loving just who you are. Mubble Pup is always getting things wrong, but The Rhymers show him love and encouragement just as he is. This story is great for encouraging any children who struggle with dyslexia or other language difficulties.
Mubble Pup has his own tongue twisters book and a special birthday story too!
The Rhymers have many early learning books to teach children their alphabet, numbers, colours, shapes, first words and counting. The vibrant illustrations and many fun things to spot keep children returning to the books again and again.
The Rhymers have a wonderful selection of personalised books catering for many occasions. There are titles to celebrate the birth of a baby, a birthday and Christmas. There are also record books for baby’s first year and the toddler years.
The Rhymers author, Andrew Buller, is passionate about producing these books as he loves to create unique gifts that people will treasure forever.
