Specially devised to entertain and delight very young children (and incidentally to help along their vocabulary and cognitive skills) here are sixteen original play-rhymes with child-friendly illustrations to cover the events of a baby's or toddler's day, and guidance on how to play:

Tickle Beetle runs round your tummy,
Tickle Beetle jumps on your nose,
Tickle Beetle runs all down your leg
And jumps up and down on your toes,
Up and down, up and down,
He jumps up and down on your toes!
(Create a nice sensory experience by wiggling your
fingers and tickling gently, as much or as little as your
baby likes.)

The rhymes cover the day, from morning playtime and lunchtime to being out and about, teatime, evening playtime, bathtime and bedtime. They feature jungle animals, farm animals, buzzing bees, big green crocodiles of course, tractors, rockets, aeroplanes - and lots more!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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 *

"We do love this book, and I am about to Face Time with a 3-year old...which one shall I choose? Big Green Crocodile."

* Dolphin Book Blog *

"Whether your children are babies, soon to start reading at school, or somewhere in between, this is for you. Caroline Rabei's wonderful illustrations showing enthusiastic young child participants in all the action make this an even more delightful sharing experience for both children and adults."

* Red Reading Hub *

"A delight. Love it. Rhymes for inside, outside, quiet and loud, sitting and standing. With actions added for each one on every page. Love it."

* Jo Bowers, Associate Dean, Cardiff Metropolitan University *

"Rhymes that make you want to clap your hands and laugh out loud"

-- Michael Morpurgo

"A truly MUST-HAVE for anyone spending time with young children. And forget the book's blurb that mentions 'toddlers and babies', many of the sixteen original action rhymes inside will be appreciated by school-age children too. The rhymes are infectiously rhythmic and each one is accompanied by LET'S PLAY guidance on suggested actions. [A] wonderful collection, joyfully illustrated by Carolina Rabei."
