Let’s check

… Maybe there’s something in Backpack to help us see when the sun is too bright. Let’s check. …

–Dora the Explorer in Swim, Boots, Swim!

The Greek figure, or rhetorical device, used is assonance, as the e in let’s and the e in check both have the same vowel sound, and they are close enough to create a rhyming sound.

Are there more of these? You’ll have to buy the book to see. You can find them in Swim, Boots, Swim! (Dora the Explorer) (Amazon affiliate link).
