A great big green crocodile lay down for a nap. I lay down beside him until he went...SNAP!
Sixteen exuberant action rhymes for young children and babies, with 'Let's play' guidance and joyful illustrations.
This is a lively and engaging collection of contemporary action rhymes. Child-friendly images bounce, zoom, creep and bump off the pages filling the space with a lively visual experience. The colours are vibrant and textured - in tune with the immediacy of the words. So get zooming to the moon or tap, tap, tapping with those wooden spoons - it will be fun. -- Ferelith Hordon - Books for Keeps 4 star review
