Children are encourage to understand rhyming words to find the missing word in each rhyme.
Lock, block, smock, flock, rock, lock, sock. The first letters are shown and children encouraged to experiment by using the letters ‘ock’ after each to find the correct word.
The answer is shown in the picture boarder of each page for little ones.
Each of the 7 clues, hidden under 7 envelope flaps, eventually lead the bunnies behind Grandma’s chair to a little treasure box which holds five chocolate coins.
But where is Dagmar? Using their memories the children think of all the places in the house where Dagmar might be hiding. Hooray she’s not lost at all but right where Lily left her.
